Jeanne & Ken -
Yes, I’ve set a few with open or lifted settings, and for one in
particular it worked great. But not for my target stone, a lovely
so-called Agua Nueva agate; a carnelian-colored stone with bands and
fortifications. I’ve already dismantled one setting because it
didn’t work; I don’t want to end up using it in a stained glass
LOL, thanks for your reminder about what a ring goes through!
