14K solid gold claw prong round wire basket pendant setting mounting features claw prongs and are precisely crafted with metal mold for a finer finish. These high quality semi-polished settings are intended for faceted stones.
Pre-notched claw settings have a vertical groove in the prong setting. The grooves in the prongs serve as a marker of where to place your stone to set it evenly and securely, with enough prong left on top to form the claws on the stone. These seat sizes may be on the small side and require proper tools and skills to set and finish.
