There are almost as many settings for your ring as there are diamonds themselves. Diamond ring settings can influence the appearance and character of your ring as much as the diamond will.
From simple, unadorned mountings to settings richly set with diamonds, the ring setting you select can support your diamond with understated elegance or with exuberant flair. Good diamond ring settings show off your diamonds.
Simple settings, like the prong setting, bezel and channel setting are the more commonly available ring settings. If you are looking for a more unusual setting for your diamond ring, you may want to think about having your diamond ring custom made.
The Prong Setting is commonly used for solitaire diamond rings, and can set a single stone off perfectly.
These kind of settings can allow your diamond to sit either close to the hand, or elevate it for further prominence.
A prong setting creates a sort of basket shape in which the diamond rests, exposing more of the diamond than other types of diamond ring settings, beautifully displaying your diamond.
Another diamond ring setting is known as the Bezel Setting in which the diamond is surrounded by a kind of collar.
This type of setting is more secure than the prong setting, and is a popular choice for this reason.
A diamond ring with this type of setting can provide a ring with a more streamlined, understated and elegant look.
Channel Settings have several stones aligned in a channel – this setting is ideal for those who would like more than one stone in their ring.
This style is popularly chosen for wedding rings, as the tidy line created by this setting allows for the easy matching of an engagement ring. A setting similar in appearance to this setting is the invisible setting, in which gemstones also sit alongside one another.
It is said that diamond rings and diamond engagement settings are representative of the foundation of your marriage. With the diamonds you select, choose a diamond engagement setting that best reflects your feelings for one another.
