Snaptite settings for faceted gemstones are extremely popular due to their versatility and ease of setting. Supplied in a range of options for pendant, earrings or bracelets they are a quick and easy way to make beautiful gemstone jewellery. Simply choose the matching sized faceted gemstone to your settings and 'snap' them into place. They require no tools, so all levels of jewellery making can make jewellery with these settings! We supply these wonderful settings as pendant settings that can easily be incorporated into necklace and bracelet designs, as ready to go earrings in a range of styles, as well as on as in loose settings ready to solder onto any design for the more advance jewellers.
Here are pictured step by step instructions on how to set faceted gemstones in snaptite settings (in the photos you'll see we are holding the earring with pliers - this is simply to make the photo much clearer, you will find it easier to hold the setting in your fingers to support the setting better).
Select your snaptite setting and faceted gemstone in the same sizes. Place the faceted stone face down (flat side down) onto a firm surface such as a magazine placed on your work surface.
Place the mount over the stone and apply gentle pressure to 'click' the stone into place. (Star shaped snaptite settings are slightly trickier to set, so you may find a stone holder helps. The claws should sit on the points of the star).
Your setting is now complete and ready to wear! Snaptite settings help to create beautiful jewellery designs and open up a whole array of possible ideas. To view our range of Snaptite Setting Click Here.
