Andreeadesign Diamond Setting School

One-to-One diamond setting courses in Birmingham

"Most teachers teach facts, good teachers teach ideas, great teachers teach how to think"

(Jonathan Pool)

Hi! My name is Coly and I'm a teacher of this school.

I have been a jeweler and setter since time.

A few years ago I decided to renew myself and while I believe that ancient methods are immeasurable, they are not as productive.

Thus leading me to new and effective approaches, such as the microscope.

I am now prepared to pass down my expertise to fresher generations.

One-to-One highly specialised and flexible classes focus 100% in your specific needs.

At the end of our diamond setting course you will understand how it works so you will be able to create your own style and you could approach new setting methods.

Questions and answers


Stone Setting is an ancient art that is creative and rewarding.
It is needed for making any jewellery which has stones set in it.
Stones are never glued to jewellery, instead, they are set.
Whether Diamonds, Sapphires, Rubies, or all other precious or semi-precious gems whether cabochon or faceted, round, oval or square, high or low, small or big, they are all set by hand by a qualified stone setter.
There are many kinds of Stone Settings and they all have different reasons for being chosen for use in a particular piece of jewellery.


Bezel Setting.
Bezel Setting is one of the oldest known settings.
This means that the gem has metal all around it and the metal is partially bent over the stone.
This type of setting works well with a cabochon or faceted gemstones.


Prong Setting.
Prong Setting is one of the most popular types of settings. It can have 4,6 or 8 prongs.
It is a really good way to show the gemstone off very clearly.
However, many gemstones are too soft for this setting and they become very insecure and can fall out.
It is necessary to learn when is best to use it.


Channel Setting.

Channel Setting is where the gemstones are sitting between two strips of metal either side.
The gemstones are held on both edges.


Pave and micro pave setting.

Pave Setting is a very popular way to set small Diamonds or other small gems. It displays them close together so that the metal beads or prongs holding the gems in place is not visible.
This creates the illusion of continuous sparkle.


Gypsy Setting.
Gypsy Setting is identical to the Bezel setting, the difference is that the metal holding the gemstone in place is thicker.


Flush Setting.
Flush setting is usually used for small stones, they sit level with the metal after they are set.
The flush setting allows the jeweller to make very sparkly pieces.
After five days practice, it will be easy to understand the basics of each one of these Setting types and to apply them.

No. I will provide all the tools and materials needed for learning.
