This sterling silver ReadySet™ cabochon setting holds one oval cabochon. 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. Easy to set with professional-looking results, ReadySet™ settings have pre-notched prongs that help ensure beautiful, time-saving stone-setting.
• 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.
