Topics: Cabochon and Faceted Gem Mountings and Settings

What are your items that will hold Faceted Gems and Cabochons? Is it best to use glue? If so, what kind? What about the sticky discs?

Faceted gems and cabochons work best with mountings and settings. The cabochon settings that have a full back can be used with our bond-a-stud dots. They work really well with smaller cabochons and the flat pad earstuds we offer. Otherwise, when bonding larger cabochons in place, a Devcon Jeweler’s 2-part Epoxy is recommended. We offer two formulas, one that is quick drying and another that allows for a little more working time. When setting a faceted stone, no adhesive is required.
