Creative Stonesetting

"... This book has alleviated many of my stonesetting anxieties. The instructions are not only thorough, but in many cases full of tricks that make the process easier."

Creative Stonesetting By John Cogswell

Select UK or Europe Price

John Cogswell is a highly respected craftsman and much loved teacher. In this landmark book he shares more than three decades of professional experience in the jewellery field.

Most stonesetting literature focuses on conventional bezels or trade practices of setting faceted stones in commercial mountings. Creative Stonesetting addresses the exciting and under-explored realms of unique settings made at the bench to secure and enhance unusual gems. With his characteristic thoroughness and humor, the author explains the tools, concepts, and procedures for a vast number of settings.

Illustrated with more than 600 drawings by the author and dozens of innovative examples.
