    Hello there,

    Can you set stones on fine silver .999, I was told that it's too soft.

    This is rather a broad question, considering the many ways stones can be set. It also depends on the type of jewellery in question. For instance a ring, or bracelet, would be subject to bumps in use and need a stronger treatment.
    A pendant, or earrings are less prone to damage.
    You could use a fine silver strip, for bezel setting, sterling tubing for tube setting, or sterling wire for claws.
