Setting cufflink stones?

Forum: Jewelry Making

Hi All,

I recently bought some flat stones from a jewelry factory that had moved and I want to set them.
They’re about 1.5mm thick and flat on the top and bottom. I bought some settings to put them in and the ‘dish’ on the setting is just a little deeper than the thickness of the stone.

Any thoughts on the best way to set them so they’re flush with the top of the lip? I was thinking about using some fairly viscous epoxy to take up the gap, but I’m worried about getting them sat just right and having any excess spill over.

Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
