[Source] Silver stepped bezel


#1

Ive spent over a year playing on the www looking for silver stepped
bezel, also called seated bezel.I’ve very limitted results. Rio
Grande is my prime source, TSI inc seems to have dissappeared,
Hagstoz is out of stock “for several months”, Myron Toback has too
wide a step and too narrow a bezel, And I need HELP!! Would you shair
your supplier with me? I do lapidary work, cabochons, and set them in
silver.

Thanks.
Stuart

Stuller sells this material in gold for sure, and perhaps in silver.
If not, then I bet they’d do a special run for you if you order
enough. Try Hoover and Strong, too. They have tons of mill products.

I know Hoover and Strong has several kinds of step bezel, available
in silver.

Hope this helps!

Hello Stewart,

Why limit yourself to bezels with a built-in step?

If the bezel is closed back, simply make a loose coil of wire that
will fit into the bezel and place the stone on top of the coil. It
is well supported and you can burnish away. Use a different gauge
wire to raise or lower the stone in the bezel.

If your bezel is open backed, it will be necessary to solder the
wire to the bottom edge of the bezel and form the step.

Judy in Kansas where it hit lower 80s today… darn funny weather.

I purchace step bezel at G&S Metals, fine silver, 14k, 18k.
www.gsgold.com I like to do business with them, they are a full
service dealer of metals and findings, they also stock argentium
silver, and they will sell to anyone who is tall enough to put their
money on the bar (hobby-artist etc.)

No afileation, just a satisfied customer.

Try Metalliferous and Hoover& Strong. Both carry stepped bezel in
varying step depths
