About this Class

You will learn to set faceted stones using the tools of the trade in this skills class. We will be setting round- and square- (princess cut) faceted stone in thick wall settings using gravers, burs, files, punches, and pushers. This is a type of tube or bezel setting, but you will be using more advanced-level tools to prep the seat and move the metal. These skills come in very handy if you want to set stones in a stiffer material like 14k gold, or carved bezels, and if you want to set faceted stones that have corners. The techniques learned in this class will improve your faceted stone-setting understanding and skills. This isn’t a fabrication class and we will be setting stones in prepared settings.


  • The $44 materials fee included in the cost of the class covers everything you need. Materials students can bring are listed below. 
  • We will take one 15-30 minute break if you want to bring food/snacks. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave on the lower level.
  • Masks are required.
