You will also need to determine what shape and style the stones are cut in. Cabochons are flat backed with a domed front. Faceted gemstones come in many shapes including: round, pear, marquise, heart, etc.
If the stones are machine-cut, you will most likely find that a setting already exists for the size of the stone. Fire Mountain Gems and Beads carries many standard-size settings.
If the stones were hand-cut, and done in a freeform way, you may need to contact a designer to custom-make your settings or select a book from your local bookstore that covers designing a bezel as well as soldering in general.
