These high-quality sterling silver snaptite settings are an extremely popular for setting faceted stones due to their ease of setting. The pre-notched, tensioned claws enable the stone to simply 'snap' into place. As they are loose settings they are very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways, thread onto a wire to decorate tiaras, thread onto cords to make necklaces and bracelets, glue onto your design using Devcon epoxy glue or solder onto your design.
Tips For Soldering Snaptite Settings
If soldering take care not to overheat the claws, by soldering you may anneal the metal which will effect the tension that keeps the stone in place. Our advice to counter this is to use extra easy or easy solder that requires a lower temperature and if you do find the settings become too soft (annealed) you can tumble polish in a barrelling machine to work harden them again (which will make them easier to securely set the stones in again).
