[Source] Cabtite

Hi all, I use a lot of Sterling silver 8x6mm Cabtite mounts in a
range of rings that I make, and I’d really like to know who
manufactures these useful little things, as my supplier doesn’t list
them anymore and I may soon need 500 or so. I’ve tried Googling for
them, but only turn up loads of references to finished items that
include them as settings, or a totally unrelated cable gizmo. Any
help would be most appreciated.

Try Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. firemountaingems.com They have what
you are looking for.


Fire Mountain Gems carries the 8x6 cabtite, but only pendant and
earring mounts. (So you’d have to trim away the posts and bails.)

They discount the price by about 50 percent if a large volume is


200+ of pendant mounts = $2.05 each
200+ of earring mounts = $3.30/pair

I have no affiliation, financial or otherwise, with Fire Mountain
