A type of setting where the pavilion (bottom) of the stone is enclosed and not visible. Sometimes the gemstone may also be foil backed within this setting to improve the gemstone's brightness, colour and appearance. Closed back settings are usually seen in early jewellery as well as in the Georgian and early Victorian periods.

Caution; do not immerse jewellery with closed back settings in any liquid.
