Settings for Briolette Jewelry:
We have drilled and undrilled briolette gemstones for your convenience, our sturdy briolette gemstones would ensure that you can drill them in “pin-cap” method without any hesitation. Other methods include conical caps. Pin cap setting is a vertical drilling done in briolette to provide maximum visibility and sturdiness. It works amazing on small briolettes. Conical Cap setting is used by designers since ages as they are accurate and easy to use. It is also suggested to do air abrasion to ensure strength of the jewelry piece.
You as a designer can make elegant earrings, necklaces, bracelets etc. In case of undrilled briolettes, we suggest you check their sturdiness before drilling them as the drilling process can crack them and hence make it unwearable.
Use of pinch bails and triangle bails is recommended for making a necklace. Wire-wrapping will add an extra oomph to your jewelry and make it an one of a kind piece. According to the sources, use of 20 to 24 gauge works best for wire-wrapping.
As a designer, you have a lot of minimal yet simplistic design liberty, right from a classy one briolette pendant to a whole layout necklace.
