This Argentium® Silver bezel cup component mounting features walls modeled from decorative gallery wire and holds one 8mm round cabochon, cameo or other flat-back stone. A wide rim inside the walls supports the stone and reduces metal weight, making the mounting more affordable. Add any bail style to the the attach ring to create a pendant, or use a jump ring or split ring to create an earring drop, dangle or charm. Bezel cups provide an easy way to set your stones and finish with clean lines and professional-looking results. Place your stone in the bezel and push the walls inward over the stone, holding it in place. For added security, if desired, place a drop or two of jeweler's epoxy in the cup before placing the stone.
Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright-white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and less likely to tarnish under most conditions. It welds flawlessly and is ideal for fusing techniques. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. Your customers will appreciate the value and convenience of brighter-white sterling silver designs that resist tarnishing and keep on shining.
