Different Engagement Ring Settings

Choosing the right engagement ring style is one of the most important steps in buying the best engagement ring for your fiancée-to-be. The ring setting plays a role not just in determining how the ring looks, but also in determining which type of diamond is the best option for you. These are some of the different ways of setting engagement rings, and I hope they will help you in choosing the unique engagement ring you have in mind.

1. Prong Setting & Solitaire Setting

The most common and classic ring setting is called a prong setting. A prong is a little metal claw that grips the diamond tightly, holding it in place. Most prong settings feature either four or six prongs; with the four prongs you can see more of the diamond, but the six prongs is more secure. A benefit of this setting is that there is a minimum presence of metal, so that there’s more diamond to see and more light that can pass through the diamond, thus adding to its brilliance.

2.  Pavé Setting

The benefits of pavé include: Highlights the center stone; Magnifies the ring’s overall brilliance with side stones; Provides extra sparkle to a lower-set or less sparkly center stone; Can be designed in a modern or vintage style. We recommend confirming ring size early in the design process in order to prevent any problems with fit when the ring is finished.

3. Halo Setting

A halo setting, can be a way to save money on a smaller-carat diamond while not sacrificing the overall appearance of the ring.

4. Bezel Setting

The bezel setting features a metal rim that protects the edges of a gemstone. Bezel-set engagement rings are defined by a flat surface that exposes only the crown, or top, of the diamond. This makes the bezel setting an appropriate style for those seeking a low-set engagement ring.
