This sterling silver bezel component mounting features a decorative rope-edge with bead details and holds one 14 x 10mm oval 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 attach ring to create a pendant, or use a jump ring or split ring to create an earring drop, dangle or charm. Use jeweler's epoxy to secure the stone in place.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
