Welcome to our Settings Education Section. We specialize in custom jewelry settings and it is always our aim to provide the consumer with informative material on jewelry, settings, and the various precious metals. The setting of a piece of jewelry is often an afterthought to the process of choosing the stones, metal, and style, but the foundation of the setting requires a skilled hand and depth of knowledge regarding stones and how the piece will be worn.
