The Role of Cabochon Settings in Jewelry Making

Cabochon is a gemstone which is also known as cab. It is a stone with a certain cut which has made it popular to be used among various jewelries. It is particularly used in those jewelries in which gemstones are included. They are available in ceramic, porcelain and even wood. Cabochon is flat on one side and it is round or dome on the other side.

Cabochon is available in different colors, styles and sizes. They can let you create versatile jewelry whether it is bracelets, earrings or even necklaces. Cabochon settings and tools are required to make essential pieces of jewelry. As they are sort of versatile stones, you can easily find them in different styles. For those jewelry designers who are experienced, it is quite easy to make their own creations with cabochon. They can be used with beads and other gemstones too for adding unique touch and color to the jewelry.

If you are working with cabochon for the first time, it is best to start with making earrings. It is the simplest design any beginner can choose. Cabochons cannot be used alone; a base is required to hold them up securely. These bases are known as cabochon settings. Choosing the cabochon settings is quite important in making jewelry. You will need the cabochon gemstone, setting, earring hooks, glue for fixing the stone and head pins for making the earrings.

Before getting started, make sure you gather all the supplies. Cabochon settings will be available in a variety of sizes. You must choose the one that fits the size of your stone. If the size of the setting and the stone does not match, the stone will never set into the setting properly. If the setting and the stone are of the same size, there is no big deal, you can simply glue them up for making a piece of jewelry.

Gluing the stone to the setting is will be easy because these stones are flat from the back and they can easily be fixed. But choosing the right adhesive will play an important role in forming a bond. The glue should become transparent when it dries, you don’t want to see it visible from the setting. If the setting is made from metal or glass, you must apply glue to the gemstone. If the stone has a rim, then apply glue to the rim. You can use wooden tooth pick for applying glue. Do not apply glue on the setting.

The cabochon settings must be clean before you place the gemstone for fixing. If it’s not clean then the stone will not fix to the setting properly. Once you have glued the gemstone to the setting, make sure you give it plenty of time to dry otherwise it may fall off.

Choosing the best cabochon settings that perfectly match the size of the gemstone itself is important. Do consider these things before you actually purchase the settings. They are widely available at the online jewelry stores and even the retail stores that provide jewelry supplies and stones.
