Loose Quorri® Setting Guide
Any reputable jeweler with a bench jeweler on the premises should be able to set your Quorri®. A bench jeweler is the one who actually does ring sizing, stone setting, etc. Mall stores (generally) and stores without an in-house jeweler are not the place to look. Some mall stores can do it but call first to see if they can set the stones for you. Quorri® stones are no more difficult to set into jewelry than many of the colored gemstones (ruby, sapphire, emerald).
Tips for Jewelers:
- Do not use metal polish that contains diamond grit or use any harsh types of rouge on your Quorri®. This might scratch your stone. Treat your Quorri® as you would a sapphire/ruby, since the hardness is approximately the same. We recommend you pre-polish the prongs before completing the setting. This will minimize any possibility of scratching the stone during polishing.
- Your Quorri® can take a fair amount of heat, but care still must be taken when using the torch. You should protect your stone from long periods of intense heat.
- When setting a Quorri® princess stone, to reduce the chance of chipping during the setting process, the corners may be softened where the prong meets the stone. This is only an optional suggestion and to be used at the discretion of the jeweler.
