““Mystery setting” patented by Van Cleef and Arpels in 1933, but originally developed by the French in the middle of the 19th century, is a method of setting diamonds that creates an array of stones that seem to float seamlessly as one piece. Unfortunately for the sake of time and cost savings, today’s version called, Invisible setting is mass produced in an assembly line process forsaking the artistry for profit. With this type mass produced jewelry stones frequently become loose and eventually, lost. At Fairy Tale Diamonds we’ve combined the over century old design with today’s technology resulting in pieces with the look of a much larger carat weight at an attainable price while eliminated the threat of stone loss. How do we do it? With our proprietary Forever Lock™ of setting. First, every diamond is hand sorted to be matched in color and clarity and painstakingly measured to ensure that every stone is perfectly matched with the other, leaving no gaps. Then, artisan diamond cutters work closely with master setters to prepare each stone to be pressure fit into specifically formed walls that snap into the grooves of each stone. The perimeter of the entire setting is secured by a frame of precious metal. Every step is double checked along the way to ensure that every stone fits perfectly and the final piece is flawlessly manufactured and the diamonds are Forever Locked™.
At Fairy Tale Diamonds, we believe we are honoring the traditional bespoke method of seamless setting developed by our predecessors so long ago by making what is to become a family heirloom that will be passed on for generations.
