Sterling Silver Oval Gallery Wire Cabochon Component Mountings



Description

This sterling silver bezel component mounting features walls modeled from gallery wire and holds one 14 x 10mm oval cabochon or other flat-back stone. A wide rim inside the walls supports the stone and reduces metal weight, making the mounting more affordable. Use the component as an earring drop, a delicate pendant, or as one element in more complex necklace and bracelet designs. 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. Oxidize the component before setting to highlight the rope detailing.

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.
