Bezel Setting trillion stone



Can someone tell me the proper way to construct a bezel setting out
of silver for a 5mm trillion cut blue topaz?

Any tips are appreciated!



I made my first successful trillion bezel after reading John
Cogswell’s instructions in Creative Stone Setting. Then I flush set
round stones in the shank with his help. It is a great book to get
you started. Now it is just practice practice practice. You only get
better by doing it over and over again.

Hey Chris,

Thank you for the tips and insightful words. I am nervous because
this is my first custom job for a customer and they wanted a trillion
cut stone. I think I will check out the book and practice like you
said. Thank you so much.
