This standard four prong collet is used in many designs such as rings, pendants, earrings and many more. 

If you prefer to learn the making of this collet in a ring setting, we recommend the jewelry tutorial on Making a Solitaire Ring Tiffany Style instead. 

These double bezel collets are readily available at the suppliers, but it is important for a metalsmith to master the making of these collets to accommodate non-standard gemstones and different metal alloys.
