Explanation:
This is the same as the "montatura a notte" (as opposed to the type "a giorno"). For the sake of rapidity, I've copied my answer to "notte" question asked a long time ago. It is also in the glossary, but under a different name.
"The 'montatura a notte' is an old-fashioned technique called 'closed setting'. Light filtered through the stone (a garnet in your case) through to top only, as the part underneath was completely enclosed in the collet. Now an open setting is used (montatura a giorno)."

Reference: the book "Jewellery" by Silvia Grassi Damiani (of Casa Damiani fame).

Again, many thanks. I looked in the glossary, but could find nothing. Now I know why and shall make amends.
