The violin strings are tuned to GDAE tuning, and each fingering row up the fingerboard increases the played pitch of that string by a half-step.

At the 12th fingering row, the notes then repeat from GDAE again, as this is an octave higher than the open strings (there are 12 half-steps in an octave).

This fingering row is highlighted in gray on the image.
