German term or phrase: Mantelfassung
This has come up in a list of features describing jewellery. It is to do with the jewellery's setting, but I was wondering what the English equivalent is.

Examples:

http://www.amazon.de/Goldmaid-Damen-Anhänger-333-Bicolor-Rub...

http://www.amazon.de/Goldmaid-Medallion-Blumenmuster-Pr-A257...
