Made in Western Germany in the 1950s, these oval Peridot (green) smooth glass domed top cabs have gold foiled backs,and they measure 25x18mm. The gold foiling is in good condition. When gluing foil back cabs and gems into settings for extra added security in case the edges of the setting or a prong or prongs loosen over time,do not put adhesive on the foil backings,as it may harm and/or degrade the foil. Use a very fine line or a few well placed drops of the adhesive on the sides of the cabs that will be covered by the sides of your settings. If you are using pronged settings with flat cabs on top,put the tiniest drop of adhesive, applied with the pointed end of a toothpick,under each prong before you snug each one to the top of the gem. Apply the adhesive to each prong as you are ready to snug that prong,as the adhesive will dry quickly when only a tiny drop is applied. Alternate prongs from side to side as you snug the prongs down so that your gem will be evenly spaced all around the base of the setting.
