    Default Problems setting stones

    Hi everyone,
    I am having a bit of trouble, I brought a cast mount from cooksons (the x7 2.5mm stone 9ct white eternity ring mount) When it arrived i had to saw the prongs in half because they came soldered togethe, but im wondering, are they supposed to be soldered together? when i saw them apart they are very thin and they dont seem suitable for setting with or they break despite sawing in a neat straight line.
    im wondering if its the kind of settings that have 2 prongs on the end and the next 2 prongs hold both stones in between them? im very confused by this setting, i presumed they would all be seperate and not soldered together...Thanks

    Yes, they are intended to be left together and applied to adjacent stones. It is so difficult to find suitable stones for ready-made settings and achieve a professional result, that you end up making your own from sheet and wire, or having them cast. Dennis.
