GEM SETTING PLIERS
A fantastic tool used to safely and easily set gemstones into rings, bracelets, and pendents.
Ideal for amateurs and professionals alike.
An adjustment screw precisely limits the jaw to move a predetermined distance determined by the setter. Helps in preventing costly damage to gemstones resulting from overtightening or slippage.
Has a 10:1 leverage ratio. Works well with most types and sizes of prongs, findings, and mountings. Can also be used as a mini vice. This unique tool is made specifically for prong-mounting gemstones.
Unlike ordinary pliers that close with a scissors action Gem Setting pliers close with a parallel motion. This feature helps you to control the pliers so they don't slip off the prongs as you work. With these pliers, the force is concentrated in one direction, which makes the pliers much easier to manage.
Another feature of the Gem Setting Pliers is the limited travel distance. The jaws move only 1 millimetre, or about 1/3 the thickness of a pencil lead, decreasing or eliminating the possibility of damage to your setting or stone. This limited travel distance, combined with the parallel closing jaws, gives you maximum control and less slippage.
If you should slip, the limited-distance-travel feature will stop the inward motion of the jaws and help keep you from possibly crushing the stone. The jaws are adjustable so they can fit prongs ranging from 2.5 to 15 millimetres high by simply turning an opening adjustment wheel.
