In reply to "Franz".
One thing I must say in regards to your email is..."Flush Setting" on a
high dome-shaped ring is that the metal "
away" from the side of the stone. Actually, there is little metal holding
the girdles in places on those edges. The stone must be lowered 'deeper'
into the ring just to allow 'some metal' to catch the girdle of the sides
of the stone. Is this difficult in setting
determining the depth of any stone!
Always be careful that the culet doesn't protrude through the bottom of
the ring! Measure the height of the dome
in relationship to the 'table to culet'. Keep your digital gauges at hand,
you just can't set
and find out
that later that
you made a mistake afterwards as the culet is showing!
