You can never know enough about this subject in my opinion! An
excellent series of well-illustrated gem-setting articles has been
appearing in �Professional Jeweler Magazine� and I recommend
subscribing. A number of these articles appear in the magazine�s
on-line archives. A quick site search using the key words "stone
setting" revealed numerous fine articles.
A more thorough search with other key words could well reveal other
articles on setting techniques.
