Turkey is the Right Address for Jewelry Mounting 

Estimate Reading Time: 3 min

A solid foundation is absolutely essential for building anything that is worthwhile, and this definitely applies to jewelry. People love buying, gifting, and wearing jewelry. A necklace, bracelet, ring, a pair of earrings, or a beautifully designed piece of jewelry is a treasured item for all. 

The finished pieces do not start that way, of course. The design is made into a jewelry mounting, which is otherwise known as a jewelry setting. A jewelry mounting is made of a precious or semi-precious metal like gold or silver and forms a kind of framework for the gemstones. For example, a ring without a diamond is the jewelry mounting for that ring. The mounting is crucial to any piece of jewelry. It forms the basis of the design and needs to be perfect in terms of style, quality, and finish. 

Turkish Jewelry - A Fast-Growing Industry 

The Turkish jewelry industry is growing exponentially and is a frontrunner when it comes to countries producing jewelry. Turkish jewelry exports are booming and have already crossed $2 billion in 2021 alone. Jewelry mountings are also part of this prosperous industry. 

Turkish jewelry mountings are made with great care and expertise. Multiple Turkish jewelry brands design and produce these stunning pieces of jewelry. Most usually assemble them by using a combination of machine-made and handmade systems. While the base of the jewelry item is usually produced by a machine, the fine and intricate details are carefully added by the craftsmen. These craftsmen are masters at their work and have studied jewelry making for years. 

Turkish Jewelry Mounting - The Different Types 

While each individual jewelry designer has their own style, some jewelry mounting types are common across the board. The Bezel setting is one of the first known kinds of jewelry mounting. A strip of the metal is shaped in the same way as the gemstone but is kept slightly higher to allow the gemstone to fit inside it. 

The Prong setting, as the name suggests, involves three or four prongs with a base underneath them. The gemstone is set into the prongs. Pave settings consist of very small prongs and are usually used for very small diamonds. 

In Turkish jewelry, such jewelry mountings are combined and used for necklaces, bangles, bracelets, rings, pendants, earrings, and more. Both elaborate designs and simple designs can be found at various Turkish jewelry retailers. They are made of gold, rose gold, silver, and other precious metals.
