Star setting

Although ‘star’ setting is not an Antoine Preziuso brand exclusive, it nonetheless constitutes a hallmark feature of some of the brand’s products, evoking Antoine Preziuso’s fascination with the beauty of the universe. This type of setting involves using metal to encase precious stones, diamonds, sapphires or rubies within the support. The setter needs consummate skill to bring the four claws that hold the stone in place back towards the stone, leaving four pointed ou-tlines in the metal, which form a star around the precious stone and reinforce its brilliance.
