Historically the cabochons are gems (generally opaque) cut with a smooth shape with the convex top and flat base, today it is possible to find cabochons in any material, even faceted. This type of component must obviously be set in order to be inserted inside a creation! To embed you can choose different solutions, based on the taste and the result you would like to get! With just a few moments you can assemble pendants, rings and earrings with the appropriate settings, but you can also enjoy creating a completely unique and personalized setting with the Wire technique.
