Our raw gemstone prongs look funny right? They are perfect for raw gemstones though! Below is frequently asked questions, answered:
How long are the prongs?
On each listing there is this diagram which shows the length in inches and in mm. We make them in 1/2 inch and 1 inch. Small stones work great in 1/2 inch prongs and larger stones will require 1 inch. S 1/2 inch prong is 1 inch from one side to the other and a 1 inch prong is 2 inches from one side to the other.
Longer prongs are also great for unique designs!
How thick are they?
We offer them in multiple thicknesses! 20 gauge (.08 mm) is fine for smaller stone, 18 gauge (1.02 mm) is standard for most stones small and medium, 16 gauge is recommended for big stones. The prong thickness is based on the ring width. 18 gauge settings only come with 20 or 18 gauge prongs. 16 and 14 gauge settings come with 20, 18 or 16 gauge prongs
Can you use cabochons with these prongs?
Yes you bet as long as the prongs are set securely! The difficulty Ive found with them is getting them straight in the setting but that might just be me!
Can you use faceted stones with these prongs?
Yes but a little more challenging! I have set them and after doing so I think the best way to do it is to drill a dent in the base on the prong setting to hole the stone while wrapping. We can do this for you if we know at the time of purchasing!
