Miniature Graduated Gemstone
Have a miniature gemstone
pendant bail installed on your pendant medal. We will install our gemstone bails on many of our medals to make a lovely necklace for you.
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

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.
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
We recommend reviewing this valuable information. Visit our
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.
