Sterling Silver 8mm Round Cameo or Cabochon Frame 4-Prong Setting



Description

This sterling silver cabochon mounting holds one 8mm round cameo or cabochon. It features a rounded-square design and a decorative, open filigree pattern and can be used vertically or horizontally. The teardrop-shaped openings on the top, bottom, and sides accommodate a 18-ga. jump ring or wire for easy use. Cabochon mountings feature a flat, sometimes open, base and raised edges with two to four prongs that hold a cameo or cabochon securely in place. A classic choice, the 4-prong setting supports the gemstone on four sides.

Please Note: 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 silver by keeping it in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
