I’m trying to find the English terms for two types of setting. It
would seem they are quite uncommon (only a couple of ghits).
I have a definition in French which I’ll include here then
Dans le serti dresse ou descendu, les pierres sont tenues par
des griffes taillees l’echoppe. Les bords, recoupes pour liberer
visuellement la pierre, sont dresses vers le haut ou descendus
vers la base.
“In a serti dresse or (serti) descendu, the stones are secured by
prongs that are cut with a chisel. The edges are cut again to
visually free up the stone (to make more of the stone visible?) then
pulled upwards or downwards.”
It’s not a really clear definition, at least not to me! If anyone
recognises this type of setting or can point me in the right
direction I’ll be very grateful as I’ve been searching for a while
