A complete and practical guide to setting precious and semi-precious stones in any metal, The Jewellery-Maker's Guide to Gemstone Settings is a detailed, technical guide to stone-setting for jewellers and jewellery students.

It explores traditional, modern, and experimental approaches to stone-setting, from the purely functional to design-led solutions for securing stones.

It takes the reader through the entire process of setting stones from choosing a suitable stone and designing and making the setting to seating and setting the stone.

The extensive setting techniques are combined with step-by-step demonstrations, precise diagrams and images of contemporary work from international jewellers.

A comprehensive reference section featuring an illustrated glossary makes this book the essential stone-setting resource for both students and professional jewellers.

Demonstrations produced using 3D modelling software provide the most up-to-date reflection of current practice and technology and allow explanations of skills and techniques to be presented with expert accuracy.

The perfect resource for jewellers of all levels.
