By mounting a coin in a
bezel you are able to turn your rare and collectable coins into coin jewelry.
Follow the easy directions below to secure the coin in your coin bezel. When
choosing your coin bezel, use our coin bezel
size reference chart to assure a good fit.
You will need a
jeweler's screwdriver with a small flat blade; we suggest one that has a
blade measuring from 1.0 – 1.20 mm in width. Use the screwdriver to
the small screw out of the fitting of the coin bezel.
Once the screw has been removed, you will be
able to slightly open up the bezel so your coin can be slipped into place.
Important; Be careful when spreading
the coin bezel open that you only bend as far as needed to slip the coin into
place to prevent bending or kinking the coin bezel out of shape.
Once the coin is in place pressure the gap of the
bezel tightly and put the coin
mounting screw back into place. While putting the screw back into
place make sure not to over tighten it which will cause the screw and its
fitting to get stripped. The coin is now securely mounted in the
bezel and from here can be used to display your coin.
If you wish to hang your coin bezel from a
chain you will need to use a jewelry bail. Determining what type of bail
will be appropriate involves a few different factors. First determine the
thickness and width of the chain you have to make sure the chain will be thin
enough to fit through the inside of the bail. If you are unable to do
soldering work we suggest using a "snap on bail"
which soldering is not required in order to use it with your coin bezel.
If you are able to solder a bail to the attachment ring of the coin bezel,
please visit our jewelry bails page to see all styles
of gold and sterling bails we have available.
