Item details

Please view all of the photos photos to see how this vintage 1950's Czech 25mm rose doublet 25mm faceted gem looks when viewed from different angles. Doublet gems have intricate and very gorgeous faceting as you can see in the photos. These have an octagonal flat table top facet in the center and then multi-faceting all around the edge of that,and they are also faceted from the backs. The backs have the sloped faceted gem backs with gold foiling. You will want a closed back setting with a high side wall tall enough to accommodate the sloped backs. You can source 4- pronged settings and also crown- edge settings if you don't make your own,but in these larger 20mm and 25mm sizes,they are very scarce to find,so if you are lucky enough to find some,buy extras if you like the larger size doublets. The 4-pronged settings have 1 or 2 loops,but it is more difficult to find a crown-edge setting with a loop at all. Crown-edge settings to fit these gem backs usually always have open backs,so take this into consideration if you are wanting a silver setting, since the backs of these gems are gold foiled, and it will show through open back settings. Sometimes I use the open-back crown settings and then wrap the set gem from the back with a large filigree that will fit across the back and up the sides and just over the top enough places to clutch the gem safely and securely. If you end up having to use an open-back setting,you can also form a smaller filigree to fit over the gem back when it's set and when you have shaped the filigree so that it fits perfectly. Then, secure it to the crown-edge brass setting back either with solder or E-6000. You will need to use a filigree that has a more closed design so that it will cover and disguise the silver back enough so that it doesn't show through the open back of the brass setting or gold plated brass setting if you use those. Don't apply any coloring to the argent silver backs or any gold foiled gem backs,as it may compromise or break down the metallic backing that the factory applied,and in time it can affect the look of the gem from the front. In other words,you can ruin it. If you have a good supply of different sizes and designs of round filigree and you are used to cutting filigree and forming it around odd-sized gems and odd shaped stones to wrap them,it isn't hard to form one to cover the back open part of the setting with a filigree. It takes some time and patience. The more you do it,the easier it will become and will take you less time. It's kind of therapeutic if you are not an impatient person. Then, the back of your gem will look as beautiful as the front. Below, I show the highlighted listing for the WOWZA 25mm Vitrail medium glass gem doublet.
