Step 1
Place the stone so the crown (the top of the stone) is face down on your work surface, and the back of the stone is face up.
Step 2
Put the Wrap-Tite setting over the stone, settling it into place around the girdle. The girdle is the widest part and it separates the top of the stone from the bottom.
Step 3
Put a piece of wire into the end loop on one side of the setting, sized to fit the loop, this will help maintain the loop when setting the stone. Using chain-nose pliers or bent-nose pliers, compress the wire at the base of the loop, wrapping the setting tighter around the stone.
Step 4
Repeat for the other side of the setting. Your stone is now ''wrapped tite'' and ready to use in your design.
