Most collar makers use plated metal pronged rimsets to hold the crystals.
I use Swarovski Crystals securely cradled in and firmly backed by Stainless Steel from the Swarovski manufacturing plant.
I use only Stainless Steel for these reasons:
Stronger and Harder than Brass
Does not tarnish or rust or chip
Does not discolor materials it comes in contact with
Well-known for its antibacterial, hypoallergenic and hygienic properties, stainless steel is very easy to clean.
While Black, Rose Gold and Rainbow finishes are beautiful, over time the plating does dull, wear off, and chip.
