Easy Mount

Easy Mount
The Easy Mount settings are also easy to mount, just as the name implies. However, it is recommended that a special pair of pliers be used with these types of settings. They are called gem setting pliers. These pliers are designed to create the force needed to close the prongs without having to worry about using too much force and possibly damaging the stone. They can be adjusted to fit prongs from 2 ½ to 15 millimeters high.

Again, the setting is ordered to match the size of the stone. The stone fits into the notches that are already cut into the setting. The stone will fit tightly. Then the pliers are used to squish the prongs around the stone. Written instructions come with the pliers and there is also a video available. Some of the vendors that offer these settings, pliers, and video include Tripp and Rio Grande.
