Stone setting with stainless steel

New to the jewelry fabrication. Wanted to try a couple stone
settings but after 2 days searching decided to ask those that would
most likely know.

I understand the concept and how to of the basic flush mount bead
and gypsy settings that I want. I am however machining from
stainless steel which would be to hard for these types. I have seen
many settings in steel bands such as I want but can’t figure out the
method of securing the stones.

Any nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
