The Gripper, a versatile setting tool


One of my latest tools is a special prong pusher, I like to call The Gripper. This tool grips the prong around its entire surface, helping the prong bend over and seat properly on the stone. It is one of those tools that I reach for when there are hard to set or heavy prongs. Sometimes it can be used as a normal prong pusher by turning it on its side and letting it cradle the prong. However, I use it the most as a stone unsetter, by reversing the first motion and pulling up the bezel or prong.

My tools are made from high quality steel with a satin finish. Satin finishing will help grip the surface of the prong, aiding in setting. This is set into a cleverly designed wood handle, which has a comfortable fit for all hand sizes. While copper ferrules aid in strengthening the handle but will not fall off like many tube type, commercial arrangements.

The Gripper is an effective way to solve some of your more difficult setting problems. As each tool is made to order please allow some time for your item to arrive. Rush orders always accepted!
