Gemstone Setting Instructions for Pre-Notched Cast Settings
Place your gem in the setting, making sure it is level. Using a pair of smooth-jawed flat-nosed pliers, gently bend the prongs against your gem - do not tighten completely. It's best to work in an "X" pattern (prongs across from each other). Once you are sure your gem is level, tighten the prongs. REMEMBER: GENTLE IS THE KEY! If using a setting with accent stones, be sure to set them before setting your main gem.
