Each stamp in this marking stamp set are clearly labeled, making it easy for you to find the stamp you want. The bent notch near the tip on bent stamps make them ideal for stamping curved surfaces such as the inside of a ring or bangle. This set offers seven different stamps reading "10K", "14K", "18K", "750", "Plat", "925" and "STER", and is delivered in a wood organizer case with a magnetic closure.
For best results—and because any stamped mark is not easy to remove once it's made—it's important to practice before attempting to mark your jewelry designs. Scrap pieces of sheet or base metal ring blanks are ideal for helping you get the feel of both the stamp and the power needed for an effective hammer strike. Use a brass mallet to strike the stamp to help prevent damage to your stamp, and support your workpiece on a bench block or an anvil. Finally, do your stamping before setting stones so that there is no risk of damaging settings or loosening set stones.
