Setting Style

The setting is the frame that secures and displays the diamond on the ring. Just as the diamond should reflect the personality and style of your future bride, so too should the setting. Although it should be unique, be sure that it contributes to, rather than detracts from, the brilliance of the diamond itself.

Center Stone

ed_style_prong

Prong

Typically, four to six small prongs hold the diamond in place. This setting emphasizes the diamond, not the metal, and is a time-honored favorite for many brides. It makes the stone easier to clean and is a less expensive mount.

ed_style_bezelBezel

In this setting, the diamond is encircled by a metal rim or collar that can feature a straight or scalloped edge. The half bezel – in which the rim only surrounds part of the stone – is also an excellent choice.

 

ed_style_tension

Tension

Normally found in wide-band engagement rings, this modern setting holds the diamond in place on two sides with the compression-spring pressure of the setting. This gives the impression that the diamond is floating in place.

Smaller diamonds (round or baguettes) are set in a row with no metal separating the stones. These diamonds sit well-protected between the two rims that encircle the ring.

Similar to the channel setting, this is also a ring in which smaller stones encircle all or part of the band. However, in this setting, the diamonds are separated from each other by thin vertical bars.

The ring is literally paved with diamonds. A row of small diamonds are held in place by tiny beads of metal.
