RING SETTING TYPES
At Natalie Diamonds, we offer an extensive range of beautiful ring setting types that make your ring one of a kind. We make sure to use ring setting types that not only enhance the entire look of your ring, but also helps create a spectacular effect. Here are some common ring setting types that are popularly used by us in our jewelry pieces –
Also called as a claw setting, the classic prong setting involves two or more prongs to set the diamond. In this ring mounting style, the prongs wrap around the crown area of the diamond and set it in place. The best part about this ring setting type is that it plays down on the use of metal, which ultimately adds much more light and attention to the stone. We suggest going with four prongs setting for rings that are supposed to have princes cut diamond or any other stone cut with delicate design.
Shared Prong Settings
In this ring setting type, each diamond or stone shares a set of prongs with the diamond or stone that is placed next to it. Just like a classic prong setting, shared prong setting too minimizes the use of metal. As a result, the diamond or stones in a ring made with a shared prong setting will attract more light and shine.
If you are looking for adding a dazzling effect to your ring design, then we would suggest that you go with a pave setting. In pave setting, little metal beads are used to arrange diamonds or gemstones in quite a dense and close setting. In this ring setting type, the diamonds are usually set low. This ring setting enables to cover the entire surface of your ring with bright shining diamonds or stones.
If you want your engagement ring to be ultra glam, then halo setting would prove to be an ideal ring setting type for you. In halo setting, a row of diamonds or gemstones is used to encircle a large center stone. This setting even allows you to use multiple stone types to get the best of your ring.
Channel setting is one of the most contemporary trends in ring setting styles. Under this ring setting style, vertical metal walls are used to create channels to set in diamonds or gemstones. This ring setting does not involve the use of metal between the diamonds, as the stones are secured from the sides.
3 Stones Setting
If you are confused to choose between your two or more favorite diamonds or gemstones, then 3 stones setting would be just the perfect choice for your ring setting type. In 3 stones setting, a larger stone is set in the center, surrounded by two other smaller stones on its sides. This setting helps bring the larger diamond into the spotlight, while giving you an extra opportunity to make a balanced and sophisticated use of multiple gems in one ring.
