Precious Metal Findings are gold or silver castings, ready to polish and set with your gemstones.
These jewelry settings are professionally made in 9, 10, 14, or 18 k gold, stamped and/or hallmarked. Sterling silver is stamped hallmark 925. Most settings have prongs and are ready to set your opal or gemstone
Many gemstone buyers now make their own jewelry, and if you purchase castings it is easy to polish and set gemstones yourself.
Many of our buyers have started as hobbyists and have grown to business size by making rings and findings so they can sell cheap jewelry.
Some of our buyers hand make and sell at markets or party plan and also on other web sites.
Claw set findings are best as easy to bend claws and polish.
Bezel set does require some experience to obtain good smooth finish around edges that hold the gemstone in place.
Settings are available in rings, pendants, and earrings, with or without diamonds.
