Pedestal Prongs - Intermediate Jewelry Series


Students will learn how to create a pedestal prong setting as well as several applications for this setting. A pedestal prong setting is built onto a pedestal or platform that is the same width as the stone and has prongs to keep the stone in place. Prong settings maximize how much of the stone you can see and are incredibly versatile with most jewelry designs. This style of setting can also be applied to faceted gemstones and the techniques to set a faceted gemstone will be reviewed during Class 5: Tube Set Gemstones. Educator: Leah Meleski.
