From hobby to professional     -      Gemstone jewelry
how to choose your gemstone


Do you already possess the basic jewelry skills like soldering, drilling and filing. Then now is the time to add some color to your jewelry!  But do you know how to choose your gemstones? You need to consider every stone carefully before you buy it. After buying the stone it’s time to design a beautiful jewel where your stone can be an eye catcher. You need to create the perfect setting for your stone. A setting that is strong, beautiful and ensures that the light can capture the inside of your stone. The details of your jewelry will reveal if you are a hobbyist or a professional.

Learning how to make settings correctly for every type of stone and how to set those stones are an important part of a jewelry training. But sadly, it is not taken seriously in many professional trainings. 


Let me tell you about my own experience. In my 2 year ‘classical jewelry’ training, I learned to make settings according to a work sheet. I had to recreate every exercise correctly till 1/10th of a mm. So I learned to work very precise. But I had no idea which size of stones I was making a setting for, or how to adapt the setting for a different kind of stone.


During the 4 years of art academy, It was all very experimental. That is important as well to cultivate your creativity and to broaden your vision. But you cannot become a professional jeweler without the correct technical knowledge.  

In my 6 years of  training


  • I did not learn how to adapt a setting to a certain size of stone.
  • I only learned to make settings for round and oval stones (excuse me??)
  • I did not know how to prepare a setting the correct way, so it would have the desired look when the stone setting work is finished.
  • I did not learn to set, which gives you a lot of inside knowledge in how to build your setting.


You can learn everything about bezel settings in 1 course!

I love color and I love gemstones even more. So I dedicated years of selfstudy to find the best ways to adjust bezel settings for every kind of cut. I took evening classes to become a stone setter, not because I want to set all the stones by myself. But  I needed this knowledge to really understand how to create the most beautiful settings!

Let me teach you everything I know about these bezel settings. That way, you can make your bezel settings in the correct way, right from the start!

The bezel settings course is a must for every goldsmith and is interesting for both beginners and advanced students. It is fun to get acquainted with many types of settings. Each setting is also clearly explained and demonstrated by Lotte. The documentation you receive is very detailed so that you can get started at home. And certainly not to forget all the useful tips and tricks that Lotte  gives you, they are worth their weight in gold.

I have just started the course. The first modules were good to refresh my memory and then the real work starts. I will make all of the settings one by one. Lotte's explanations are very good. I can recommend this course to anyone who is struggling with settings!
