Most challenging diamond setting


#1

One of the most challenging methods in diamond setting is to
Flush/Gypsy set a Princess stone…my choice of burs is between a
Bud bur of.006 - .007…Round bur of the same size.006 -.007…a
"Bedaco" hammer and steel ring mandrel…This technique is only for
those who have at least 50 years of experience behind them…:slight_smile: Its
basically “putting a square stone into a round hole”, nuttin’
else…oh yes, all stones MUST fit in flat, and not slanted to the
axis of the mount…if there are many stones…there must be equal
spacing of metal in between each of them…is this an easy setting
project? …NO…and this is not for the faint of heart…Gerry!
