Setting a Stone Within a Stone


#1

Are there any resources on how to tube set a faceted stone within a
cabochon, so it is a stone within a stone? Jamie Joseph does this technique
a lot.

Thank you,
Ginger

Jeff Fulkerson wrote an instructional article in Lapidary Journal March 2017. Also Jim Dunakin’s project in December 2013 Lapidary Journal.

Not sure if his style is what you’re looking for, but Michael Boyd has a “Stone on Stone Setting” video through Interweave.

His pieces are beautiful.

Any stone being set has to be placed in a piece of metal. I suppose that (not shown originally), it should or could be in a “mini-tube” setting. The tube for a small diamond can be shaped just for the project at hand. Once the stone has been set, it can be then carefully contoured to the shape of ‘table-facet’. The result is a ‘smooth to the touch’ finish!
Hope this helps you!

@gerrylewy18 I feel another Essay coming down the electric highway in the future. LOL

I got this big one right now on Fish-Tail setting first.
But this Tube-setting topic seems in order.
Ganoksin ain’t gonna let me rest for a moment, eh!
