3 stone graduated gemstone bails
These 3 stone gem bails are available with many types of gems in 14k yellow or white gold.

These Bails are approximately 1/2" high. We recommend installing these on medals 12 to 16 mm high. These can hold larger but we recommend not much over 18 mm (3/4") round medals or 20 mm high oval medals. Click the "Gem Bail Index" link above to view gem bail options for larger medals.

What it's about.
We set the gems then install the bail.

Ring eye required on top!
Pendant medal, cross or charm must have a fixed ring eye such as this example.
The fixed ring eye is a permanent part of the pendant as cast or die struck at the factory.

Our shop will gold braze the proper jump ring to attach the gemstone bail. Mini-Bails do not use a jump ring. The ring eye is incorporated in the design. See side view below.
Instructions. Please review.
There are two methods of adding a gem bail to a pendant.
1. If gem bail options are listed in a pendants review page:
Drop the pendant medal in the cart then follow directions to add the bail of your choice.

2. If a pendant is already listed with gem bails:
Simply proceed to items review page and select the bail of your choice from the drop down menu.

There is a lot of information regarding these bails and the gems used.
We recommend
reviewing this valuable information. Visit our Gem Bail Index>
If you get lost gem bails can be found in the accessories section from the left hand menu.

Basically the only true requirement for installation is that your choice of pendant, be it a medal, cross or charm etc., has a ring eye on the top, such as pictured.
