This article is about an older version of DF.

A gem setter is a dwarf with a high profession level in encrusting furniture, finished goods and ammo with gems. A high level of gem setting allows a dwarf to set gems faster and with better quality, making the decorated items more valuable.

Large gems can not be used for setting as they are finished goods.

Note that choosing to encrust a bundle of bolts will create enormous value, as the same materials are used for a whole stack or a single bolt. Some players consider this as cheating.
