Hey ref - aren't gypsy and flush settings synonymous? 

I'll humbly conceed that Ace took the point if you don't agree, but some info I found seems to suggest they are the same.

http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/nenam/gypsy-setting.htm

Also here (indirectly):
Quote
Belcher Setting (Circa 1850-1890)
Although the dates are Victorian, this is a uniquely American style, named after American designer Thomas Belcher. The defining feature is how the stone is secured into the ring -- using prongs or claws that are cut into the shank of the ring, so that the stone does not extend above the circumference of the shank. A secondary characteristic is that most Belcher-style mountings have a round dip between the prongs at their base. The closest European counterpart is the flush-set “gypsy” mounting. It is a sturdy style, and because the stone sets low into the ring, it is less likely to catch on things. We offer Belcher-style mountings in a variety of weights and looks, up through the Art Nouveau era.

I will post all 9 questions tonight and if it hinges on one point, I will find another question rather than debate the last answer.  I do want to talk about it in the threads though!
