1. What is a chaton

The word chaton comes from the French "chaton", a word that means mouthpiece translated into Spanish.

Chaton is a type of setting, i.e. a way of attaching stones to chains without any attachment. We could say that it is a type of soldering that allows the chain and the detail to be joined in a clean way.

Today, the chaton is also known as a "bezel" setting. This type of setting is a metal ring that surrounds the stone and bends slightly behind it.
