Okay hear me out guys.
I recently purchased two tennis bracelet mounts for a 5x5 round stone, it was from india, so it took awhile to arrive. I don’t have the skills to make this at all, but I have a two cool idea’s for color scheme’s . I was planning on buying an assortment of flame fusion corundum/spinel and natural 5x5 round stones in bulk because it would also benefit my recent project that uses the same type. So cool, I’m ready to place the order for the stones, but I wanted to test the size first. I go to check it, and the outside diameter is somewhere around 5.15mm, but the prongs are too large so I couldn’t even fit a 4.75mm stone.
So I was just wondering if you guys think the prongs would be strong enough if I just used a ball bur of similar size and just run it down the center of the prongs to create a setting for the stones. Maybe that’s what I’m supposed to do anyway, but I learn by trial an error for now so I just wanted someone’s opinion before I waste money on buying stones.
