Invisible Setting

A channel setting using calibrated stones without any metal showing from the top. The “Mystery Setting”, patented between 1934 and 1936 by Van Cleef & Arpels consists of hundreds of small gems covering a piece of jewelry, which seem to float on top of the structure with no visible mounting. The surfaces are created using an extremely fine rose gold mesh which hugs the contours of the stones resulting in a seamless surface of rubies, emeralds, sapphires, or diamonds.
