The earliest known technique of attaching stones to jewellery is bezel setting, which has been dated as far back as the middle ages. A strip of gold is bent into the shape and size of the stone in question, before being soldered to the piece of jewellery. The stone is inserted into the bezel and the metal rubbed over the stone, holding it in place.
The bezel set beauty in The Wren vintage ring also has its origins in ancient times - smoky quartz was considered a power stone to the pagan Druids. It was even used by the Chinese in the 12th century - smooth panes of Smokey Quartz were used to protect the eyes, much like our modern day sunglasses.
