The gypsy-setting is one of the most secure ways to mount a diamond, as it is flush with the surface of the gold, protected from being struck at its vulnerable girdle, and held in place firmly around its full circumference. Its name derives from the methods of itinerant jewelers, who created work with universal appeal, and maintained ancient, traditional techniques in their practice. It's sleek, restrained minimalism contrasts strikingly with the complex light effects of antique diamond cuts. A mounting dating from antiquity, and popular again since Victorian times, it appeals both to men and women.
