Non-calibrated stones... calibrated settings... What do you do?

A customer wrote to me for help, and I in turn am asking yours! They said:

If we’re buying manufactured gold castings for pendants, earrings and
rings to set gemstones in, what do we do about odd size stones? Any
suggestions? We’ve seen some really nice non-calibrated stones, but what
about fitting them into pre-manufactured settings?

I know there are a lot of goldsmiths, silversmiths and metal artisans out
there… can you offer any advice?
