Burnish Setting

A burnish setting is a term for setting a stone directly into metal using gravers, also called burins, which are essentially tiny chisels. After the stone is inserted into the space, a burnishing tool is then used to push the metal all around the stone. The stone will be roughly flush with the surface, with a burnished or rubbed edge around it.
