Course Overview

Round Faceted Stone Settings Course

Round faceted stone settings are extremely versatile and the simplest of the faceted stone settings to master. When making mounts for round faceted stones  we have to create a cavity to ensure we accommodate the pavilion, the part of the stone that helps make it sparkle. There are a variety of ways to achieve this.

On this course we will cover the principles of both making the mount and setting the stone. We will start with larger stones to ensure students understand the basic techniques before moving on to smaller stones.

What are faceted stones?

Faceted stones have flat planes cut into the surface known as facets. A well-crafted geometrical arrangement of facets will reflect light both internally and externally, maximising the brilliance and fire of the stone.

If you would like to source your own stone or already have a stone you would like to set these are the criteria in order of project;

  • 1 round faceted stone, minimum width 8mm
  • 3-5 round or oval faceted stones, size 2mm – 6mm. These stones are required for the second half of this term so if you’re unsure please discuss with Nerissa in class.

  • Covered footwear is required and absolutely no high heels.
  • Tie back long hair when using motorised equipment.
  • Please respect others and don’t interrupt students who are soldering, using the drill or any other equipment that could create a safety concern if the operator is distracted.
