CLAW SETTING FAQ's
Do these claw settings come with stones? No they don't. These are only the blanks to be used with your own stones.
What types of stones can you use in claw settings? One of the great thing about our claw settings is that you can use a variety of stones in these settings! We've had customers use things like cabochons (flat back stones), raw stones, tumbled rocks, custom-made stones, and even faceted stones!
How do I know what prong length I need? In order to determine the prong length, you will need to know the dimensions of your stone, including the shape of the stone, the diameter, and height of the stone. Example: Round stone 1" diameter,1/4" tall (wall height). Measure from the center of the stone, which gives you a measurement of 1/2". Add the wall height of 1/4", then add a little extra for the prongs to wrap around the top (maybe an extra 1/4" for a stone this size). You would need 1" prongs for a stone this size.
What prong thickness (gauge) should I get? Armored Supply Co offers prongs in three different thicknesses. 20 gauge (.08 mm) great to use with smaller stones. 18 gauge (1 mm) works well for just about any stone! 16 gauge (1.3mm) is recommended for larger stones.
