Which setting video next?


#1

I need a show of hands to which setting video you want next.

Bezel Setting, 4-Prong Engagement ring, Gypsy/Flush, or a Princess
stone?..Gerry Lewy


#2

From Sasha Bell

4-prong engagement please and thank you!

From Alma

Actually all four, but if it needs to be narrowed down, gypsy/flush.
However, I will appreciate whatever is decided. Thank you. Alma

From Julie Seymour

Gypsy or Flush, please.

From Thomas H. Louthen III

I guess I have to vote for Princess Cut to see if I set that diamond
wrong to begin with!

From david piccoli

bezel i am novice in metal

From andrew charvoz

Gerry I vote for —Gypsy/Flush

From Sue Danehy

How about a gypsy setting?

From Christopher Lund

Gerry, from somebody whom isn’t worthy to ask, I would be
interested in gypsy/flush.

I got myself a load of practice stones ready for such shenanigans.
Cheap peridots, actually

Thank you for your willingness to share. Christopher Lund

From Eleanor Phillips

Gypsy/flush!


#3

Princess, please.


#4

Thanks!
Rebekah

I think I’m a minority, but I’d like to see Princess, myself. But
then, I’ve done some flush setting- & as someone else mentioned,
they’d all be great to see.

That said, I feel have to warn Christopher that peridots are kinda
terrible for flush setting practice- they’re soft & chip really
easily. I did a birthstone ring for my aunt with a peridot (August) &
a pink tourmaline (October) when I was first learning flush setting.
I had no problems with the tourmaline but I killed a couple of
peridot before I got one set properly. CZs are much better for
setting practice-- they can take a bit more punishment

Also, I thought engagement rings always had 6 prongs?

Dear Gerald, Princess is the next choice. Especially the invisible
setting. Umesh

After some interesting requests on up & coming video’s. I’m going to
continue on with what everyone has asked for in future
presentations.

These will be Bezel Setting, Princess Setting, Gypsy/Flush & the
very easy 4-Claw/Prong setting.
.for now! Bead setting will be done
once these 4 are finished. I’m still drawing diagrams to make your
lives easier while learning & watching.

regards to all. Gerry Lewy

This is so generous of you Gerry. I’ve had your gravers and essays
for a fewyears now but haven’t had the courage to do anything more
adventurous than the bezel settings I’ve always done (into which
I’ve put a lot of work to achieve a high standard). I feel that the
videos you’re making will give me thepush to start trying
alternative settings. Thank you so much! I’m looking forward to
seeing them once made.
