I set my own stones so I get to choose the colors of the stones I use for my projects, recently I have been working on one of my larger commissioned bridal project (Handmade Bridal Statement Necklace) and setting stone is one of the process.
To set stone, I use a rectangle block and then I pierce a navette shape hole so that I could stay put Navette settings and set the stone in.
