The technique of setting diamonds in gold-backed silver finds its origin centuries ago, when jewelers believed that only a silver mounting could render the true beauty of diamonds. Backing the silver jewel with a layer of gold was a practical precaution taken to avoid the silver leaving black stains on clothing or skin.

It was not until the late Nineteenth, early Twentieth Century with the recognition, and thus use, of platinum as precious metal and the development of white gold the practical necessity to use bi-colored material became obsolete. The argument to use bi-colored metals became more an esthetic habit than a practical necessity. Goldsmiths kept using bi-colored metals to emphasize the diamond settings up to the fifties of the Twentieth Century.
