Simpler designs, born out of classic tradition include the eight claw, six claw and four claw settings. Such classics as the Tiffany setting, originally in Platinum with a simple claw setting not detracting from the beauty of the diamond remain as popular today as ever.
Thus, it is unsurprising that throughout history diamonds have been enthralling kings and cardinals, princes and potentates, moguls and movie stars. In Western Europe, during the early Middle Ages, diamonds were so in demand due to their rarity and supposed powers that sumptuary laws decreed they were only to be worn by kings and royalty.
They even placed diamonds in the eyes of their revered statues. It is said that the Indian deity Krishna gave his love Radha a great diamond – believed by some to be the stunning Koh-i-Noor – to reflect her beauty as it shone in the moonlight. Thus we have the first associations of diamonds with love.
