Wow! Great job!

Where did you get the setting?

What tools did you use and did you need to use any heat?

You did a great job!  I would have been terrified of cracking the diamond!

This is so cool! I’ve always had an idea that something like this could probably be done with all the  stones I have sitting around. Thanks for the link! I’m about to order a couple settings and start playing with my loose stones.

I love the thread, but am devastated that the semi mount is not deliverable to Australia! Wah! All the ones I find are like $60-120 for silver settings, and there is no way I am going to spend that much 🙁

Wow!  Awesome!  thanks for the ebay link.  I’ve been wanting some mystic topaz i found on JTV but haven’t found settings for less than 2-300 for gold and 100 for silver.  It seemed so weird to me to buy a 100+ setting for a $20 stone.  This is perfect.  Does it seem secure once it’s set?  would you worry about the stone falling out during normal wear?

Thank you for posting this! I just bought some loose stones online and I wanted to make custom jewellry as a gift for my bridesmaids & I think it would be extra special if I set the stone into a ring myself just for them!! You make it sound doable….so I guess it doesn’t hurt to try it!
