Bezel cups- source?


#1

Hello all,

I am looking for a source for Sterling silver die struck or cast
Bezel Cups in round, triangle, square, etc. in very small to
medium sizes.

I know of Rio , but need more varied sizes, particularily small
and more shapes.

I’d appreciate any help…

Deb

I’m looking for tube settings . . . higher than what Rio offers
Any suggestions would be appreciated (higher meaning HEIGHT, not
cost! : ) )

I have purchased lengths of tubing( from Rio) and cut them to
length. To make a seat I put a smaller tube inside the larger and
cut it slightly shorter. I have also vulcanized the results after
attached to a design. Darryl

I suppose that If I purchase the tubing, I should get one
diameter larger than the stone I need? (for the outside) I don’t
cast at all, so vulcanizing wouldn’t be something that I even
know how to start to do.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Darryl,

Do you have trouble getting a snug fit of one tube within the
other? Do you still have to burr the setting to fit the stone
perfectly, or do you have such a variety of tubing that you can
always find the size(s) you need? Do you sometimes have to draw
tubing to the correct size?

Just wondering,
