Jewelers Tweezers and 2 Part Epoxy, 5 minute, clear drying.
Mix glue per instructions. Before you glue, for safety, remove the clasp connector. Apply the glue to the recessed area where the crystal will sit in the clasp, not on the crystal. Set in the crystal and adjust to make sure the crystal is level.
Use museum putty to hold the clasp in place. And, instead of tweezers, try using a toothpick with a tiny bit of museum putty or beeswax rolled on one tip. It will stick to the crystal so you can position it, releases easily and leaves no residue.
If you get glue on the crystal or clasp dampen a Q-tip in isopropyl alcohol, wring out the excess, and use it to clean off glue before it has set-up. If the glue has set-up it will not work.
NOTE: The picture shows the clasp with Light Siam Cabachons in place. These are sold without stones, so that you can choose your own style and color.
