Designer Tips

  • Use a steel burnisher to carefully smooth (burnish) the prongs down onto the rivoli stone in the bezel setting. For step-by-step instructions on setting a crystal stone in a bezel, see Blog Article: Step-by-Step: How to Set Rivoli Stones in Bezels
  • Use a 10mm jump ring to attach the lobster clasp to one end of the drawn cable chain. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
  • On the other end of the drawn cable chain attach the following jump rings in this sequence: 10mm, 13.5mm, 10mm, 13.5mm, 10mm, 13.5mm, 10mm, 13.5mm, and a final 10mm (this jump ring will receive the lobster clasp).
  • Use a 6mm jump ring to attach the rivoi charm to the second 13.5mm jump ring.
  • Use 6mm jump rings to individually attach the 3 cross pendants to the third 13.5mm jump ring.
  • Connect the lobster clasp to the final jump ring.

14mm #1122 Rivolis by Swarovski are nearly gone, but these settings also work with most other brands of 14mm rivolis. Shop remaining colors while they last!
