Stone Setting                                                35 Hours         


This class will provide the students with a general knowledge of the tricks of the trade for Stone Setting. Our program successfully competes with any and all of the one week courses available in the country. Do not expect to become a professional Stone Setter at the end of any one week class since this would be a false promise from any educational institution. Our program will give you a good foundation to understand and perform many of the tasks that you may be presented with when working in the jewelry industry. Becoming a Professional Stone Setter requires extensive training and practice like any other trade or profession. If you are a Jeweler with little of no experience, we highly recommend this class.
