This 14/20 yellow gold-filled component mounting (also called a screw eye) features a cup & peg and is ideal for creating a pearl pendant or pearl earring drops. Set the mounting with one half-drilled pearl or bead. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the peg; the twisted peg provides more surface area for the epoxy, helping to create a stronger connection. Gold-filled components deliver karat gold at a more affordable cost than solid gold, allowing you to design with the touch of precious metal customers look for and to offer your designs at a price customers appreciate.
• Pearls for cup and peg settings should be at least 2mm larger than the cup size.
• Customers within the European Union: Please be aware that all gold-filled materials sold by Rio Grande are in compliance with EU regulation EN1811:2011.
