" Stone Setting does what it says on the tin - the different techniques are explained, deconstructed and demonstrated in a lively, accessible style. It's essential reading for anyone in the industry who needs to be reminded just what level of skill goes into producing the likes of bezel, claw, tension, channel and pave settings. "
