Jewelry Mounting

Yellow Gold solitaire mounting with white gold prongs  

Don't skimp on the mounting! The metal is usually the least expensive part of the jewelry piece and it is often the most overlooked – people tend to focus more on obtaining a great diamond or gemstone and forget to spend any time evaluating its setting. A well-chosen mounting will ensure that your jewelry lasts a lifetime.

Mountings come in a wide array of metals, but gold and platinum are the most popular for mounting precious stones. The information below provided in this section is a good introduction to jewelry. It covers a discussion about alloys, gold and its variant colors, platinum, jewelry cleaning and storage.

We encourage potential or existing customers to familiarize themselves with this information before deciding on their jewelry mounting.
