Gypsy Setting-Finish

Description

In this second of two videos just on Gypsy Setting, I demonstrate Bright-cutting inside of the “Gypsy” circle of metal. With this final clean-up, I use my Flat-Faced, #180 grit Pumice wheel. It is in contact all along the surface of the dome-shaped ring.
No flat surfaces are allowed, There are two axis’s of curvature & each must be returned as originally made!
There must be no contact with the pumice wheel to the actual stone, lest the facets be totally ruined! This can happen on many an occasion.
