New York’s Premier Jewelry Manufacturer Explains How to Choose a Stone Setting, Manhattan, New York

Stone setting is the art of attaching and presenting gems in a piece of jewelry. When done right, a dull-looking ring or earring can transform into a gorgeous and charming ornament. Frank Billanti Casting Company is the one-stop shop for all your jewelry needs. Frank Billanti, the premier jewelry manufacturer in New York, says choosing the right stone is the first step in every stone setting process.

Here’s how an expert would choose a stone for stone setting: 

  • Prong Setting: For individual featured stones, prong setting is considered the best stone setting method. If you’re going for prong setting, choose faceted stones or gems with many faces. This type of setting allows light to pass through the top face and sides, making your stone sparkle.
  • Bead Setting & Pave Setting: Tiny diamond stones are usually used in a bead setting and pave setting. In bead setting, the tiny stones are arranged in rows and set in white gold and platinum. In a pave setting, the stones are set in fields and cover a broader area, creating a diamond-encrusted appearance. It’s a popular choice for engagement rings and earrings. Diamonds are very versatile, and you can wear them for just about any occasion.
  • jewelry castingBezel Setting & Gypsy Setting: For these types of stone setting, an expert jewelry manufacturer would recommend cabochon gemstones. Unlike faceted stones, cabochon stones are polished and feature a dome head and a flat reverse. These stones are put inside thin bands of precious metal that are formed according to the size and shape of the gem.
