Sterling Silver Oval Component Mountings



Description

This sterling silver component mounting holds one 9 x 7mm 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. Attach it to an ear wire and use it as an earring drop, or add a jump ring or bail and string it on a cord or chain as a charm or pendant. Set your stone in the mounting, then burnish the prongs over the stone to secure it in place.

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 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.
