Review This Product
These are OK---BUTThese casting are OK, but their not the best JTV could offer. A few years ago, JTV offered a much sturdier casting with the post in the middle---not at the top--for a less expensive price. Sure wish you could bring them back. Would be willing and happy to pay the higher price for the better quality product. October 24, 2014

A bit thin and soft, but otherwise goodThis was my first purchase of any of the snap in type settings. I wish it had been a bit more heavy duty because I had to manually restraighten some of the prongs after my first attempt to get my stones set in them properly when they didn't go properly in at first. Once I manually pushed the prongs in far enough before another attempt, they were in well. I am planning on selling the earrings I made from this casting and some emeralds I bought, so I hope they hold up. The other problem I'd like to warn people about is that the backings aren't always right. I had an ordeal of a time getting one of the earring backings to go smoothly on the post. It would go through the hole, but wanted to go the wrong way once past that. Overall, it seems like a good purchase, but only time will tell. It's a shame we can't edit reviews once they are posted to show product resilience over time. October 24, 2014

Flimsy...Sorry, these are very poor quality. Purchased the pendant setting as well. It worked fine. One of the earring castings set well but the second was a real mess. Prongs bent every which way and stone continued to fall out. Used tweezers and pliers to try to tighten the setting. Bought for two types of mystic topaz that are no longer being made in hopes of having nice settings of stones no longer available. And the earring posts are very hard to get thru ear, they bend as well. Post backs are so tiny they get lost under finger nail. Am afraid to wear the earrings as I may lose the stones. There must be something worthwhile between this low end style and the very high priced settings. August 04, 2014

Prongs looseI can't get the gem to stay in one of the castings. Once again I am going to have to take one of JTVs earring castings to the jeweler, and have him put solder on the casting to compensate for being so flimsy. Losing respect for your metal castings. October 24, 2014

Voila!So easy to set! The metal could be a bit thicker for durability, but I suppose the thinner silver is needed for prong flexibility. As long as they hold the gems tightly, my ears are happy with these. April 21, 2014

Ruined My Stones, Poor QualityI had some lovely stones from JTV. I decided to set them myself as I had done on many occasions. I even watched JTV's hostess do it on "Late Night Rocks." She had a little trouble, but finally set them. My settings arrived and I attempted to set my stones. They slipped and slided eventually scratching the stones. As I gently pressed the prongs in place the stem fell off. I purchased a setting much like this in 14 carat gold some years ago, same problem. Poor quality,. worst I've ever seen. I just sick about the scratches on my stones. I will be returning and I will never purchase another product from Gemtite again. December 20, 2013

Made nice kunzite earringsThe reason I gave them a good is that one casting was hard to set. I had to operate on it but it finally worked. The earrings look good with a ring I have. June 06, 2013
