The snow setting trend

The spotlight rarely falls on the art of setting: the way precious stones are fixed to jewelry. But as well as a few well-known classics like the claw and invisible settings, there are also lesser-known techniques like the snow setting. A feature of the latest Piaget, Cindy Chao, David Yurman and De Grisogono high jewelry collections, this involves taking dozens or even hundreds of micro-stones of different diameters and arranging them randomly. The idea is to create reflections, like snow glittering in the sun.

 

  • De Grisogono - Necklace in gold, sapphires and diamonds

  • Cindy Chao - Earrings in silver, pink gold, conch pearls and lacquer

  • De Grisogono - Ring in gold, sapphires and 5.10 carats diamond

  • Piaget - Ring "Sunlight Escape" in gold, diamonds and tourmaline cabochon

  • David Yurman - "Pétale" bracelet in gold and diamonds
