In this second mini-video, I explain in great detail what happens when I use a H.S.S. 90 degree angle setting bur. In this video I also show what a piece of metal called ‘shards’ can be formed during the ‘bearing-forming.’ process. There many methods in removing them, I will show you two of the easiest. If your stone has a thicker girdle, again more explanation in preparing the bearing for that diamond.

Gerry started his 9-year apprenticeship with a jewelry manufacturer and tutored by a gentleman ‘setter’, in Haddon Gardens, London. Gerry has redeveloped himself into more than a master setter, his purpose is now to be a teacher of the art as well.
