Sterling Silver Tapered Round Tube Bezel Settings



Description

This sterling silver tube setting with open styling holds one 3mm round faceted gemstone. Tapering gives the setting an attractive profile that suits a variety of jewelry styles such as rings, pendants and drops. Pre-formed seats provide a professional start to stone-setting and help ensure level setting—complete the setting by adjusting the seat to fit your individual stone using a setting bur. Check your stone size carefully; because gemstone sizes vary within a certain tolerance, the setting may not be suitable for your stone.

Tube settings are literally cut from (or cast as) a tube with enough thickness to allow a seat for the gemstone to be cut into their interior walls. The setting is finished in roughly the same way as a bezel; the tube walls are pushed inward and burnished over the girdle of the stone to hold it securely in place.

Please Note:

• Cast tube settings have a thicker wall than die-struck versions; the thicker walls allow you to thin the walls slightly if necessary to ensure a perfect fit. Because the walls are thicker, they may be somewhat more difficult to set.
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.
