Diamond and Gemstone settings

Do you have loose gemstones or diamonds in your jewellery, or are you a goldsmith looking for a reliable and professional setter? Margriet Cuijpers is an experienced goldsmith and setter with years of experience setting gems and diamonds for jewellery stores, goldsmiths and personal clients. Get in touch using the form below.

The stone setting is the way a gem or diamond is attached to the piece of jewellery. This work requires specialised knowledge and tools as even diamonds can shatter easily when handled incorrectly. Margriet Cuijpers has many years of experience setting diamonds and gems. She works with a microscope to set even the most refined and small stones.

Different Stone Settings

Gems are locked into the surrounding metal. There are many ways of doing so and each setting type has its own characteristics. Well-known examples are:

Prong Settings where the gemstone is held together using small claws;
Bezel Setting where the gemstone is enclosed in a perfectly-fitting metal casket;
Pave Setting (pronounced: ‘pa-vay’, which is French for ‘paved’) where the gemstones are placed directly into a recession in metal.

For examples of these and other settings, please find Margriet’s jewellery in our webshop or visit us in our studio and shop BLOU in Amsterdam.

Repairing Loose Gemstones in your Ring and Jewellery

Precious jewellery deserves precious care. After some time, gemstones might let loose from their setting, possibly causing them to fall out of the ring. To avoid losing the precious gem or diamond, it is important to have your jewellery repaired as soon as stones let loose. Margriet will happily check your jewellery for potential damages to ensure your stones are cared for the way they deserve.
