Stone Setting

This course is an excellent module included in our to our Full Time Certificate Course. These setting classes teach you the skills to manipulate the precious metal around gemstones so that they are safely and securely held (set) in your piece. 

Tutored by Lee Harding, this Stone Setting module will take place regularly throughout the term during our Full Time Certificate Course.

 


Rubover: This is the technique when the metal is pushed all around the girdle of the gemstone. 

Punch (Invisible): This course will teach the student how to drop the stones beneath the surface of the precious metal so that the setting appears to be invisible. This is a natural progression from the Rubover Setting.

Pavé setting: This course will teach the student how to raise grains of metal around the stones so that the stones are held securely. This is a natural progression from the Rubover and Punch Setting Course. 

Channel Setting: Students will be shown through demonstration and practice the correct techniques to use channels of precious metal to hold stones into a setting. This is a natural progression from the Rubover, Punch and Pave Setting Courses.
