This jewelry lesson teaches you how to make a rectangle double bezel collet, which can be used in rings, earrings and pendants. You will be shown in step by step instructions from start to finishing the pendant with a brief description of how the setting is done.

Making this collet is a skill that is important for a jeweler to have. Expensive high grade gems are cut for weight and so do not conform to any standard sizes. That makes the collets that jewelry supply houses offer unsuitable, since the available sizes are all standardized. In making this tutorial a random rectangle gemstone was selected to illustrate the variation of non-standardized sizes.
