Star setting is one in which a diamond is placed into the centre of an engraved star. The stone is held in place by a small bead of metal at the base of each of the points.
Diamond - the April birthstone - was first known to originate from India, where they were gathered from the country’s rivers and streams. It’s thought this stunning gem was traded as early as the fourth century BCE. Years later, exotic Indian merchandise - including diamonds - were brought to the medieval Venetian markets. By the 1400’s, diamonds were the preferred accessory of Europe’s royalty and elite. Soon the whole world caught on.
