Soldering, Plating, and Stone Setting

Many Swarovski Settings, Cupchains, and Findings allow for easy soldering to create intricate jewelry pieces and accessories with Round Stones, Fancy Stones or Flat Backs.

Depending on the final jewelry or accessory piece, additional crystals in specifically designed settings can be applied manually or mechanically by sewing, soldering, or threading.

For a perfect finish, a plating process can conclude the production process of a jewelry piece or accessory. During this process, metallic coatings are electrolytically added to the surface of the material to give a certain color and look.
