I think gypsy set is what you are thinking of (not sure if it's offensive or not?)

Tiffany coined the term etoile for that style?

Well this style is how my stones from my original wedding ring are going to be set in the new band and I wanted to google some pics of bands set like this. Original wedding ring set is the bottom part of this pendant.

The big round in my ring will have two little marquise on each side splayed out like petals and then two little rounds on each side beyond them in between the ends of the marquise. I have a drawing that I did to show how I want them set but cannot figure out how to load a pdf. The band will be handforged and hand hammered with a polished finish.

I've heard it called "drill set" and "gypsy" set, and was informed by the lady I asked about "drill set stones" that only bench jewelers used that term and clearly their standards weren't high enough to give it the appropriate name of "gypsy set". Eyeroll

Thank you all!

I finally figured out how to get this so I can show you. I am having to buy one little matching marquise but my eye wants symmetry so I just could not handle only having 3 marquises on the band.

I've heard gypsy set or burnished.

RE: What is this style of stone setting called?
I know the form of stone setting as burnished, and the style of band as etoile. So burnished stones don't necessarily make for an etoile band, but an etoile band requires burnished stones. Does that make sense?

Sharp mind, soft belly.
