Different types of setting for your Engagement ring
Claw/ Prong Settings
Claw or prong settings are also a prevalent type of setting for wedding rings. The shape, size, and number of claws can be different, giving a different look. Six claw settings provide a simple yet contemporary look while fastening the diamond properly and are the most regular pick for a round well-cut diamond. Four claw settings offer a modern feel and are commonly used for princess cut diamond rings but can also use for other diamond cuts.
Eight claw settings provide more protection and, in some cases, are used to cut huge stones, but the diamond can appear a little compact. A few diamond shapes and ring designs can require the use of three or even two claws. This claw’s edges can be sculpture, but rounded claws are well-known as they hardly undergo scratch.
You might have heard of the Gypsy setting at a men’s jewelry store you’ve been to. The band atop the Gypsy setting is a lengthy piece thicker at the top—carved like a dome with the stone placed in the middle and flushed with the band. You won’t find any prong in the Gypsy setting; thus, it looks neat and smooth. This setting, in some cases, is known as a shot setting, a flush mount setting, or burnish setting. Like the Bezel setting, the top of the diamond is the only revealed part within the Gypsy setting.
The bezel or rub-over setting is where the metal fully encircles the outer tip of the stone. Metal is pushed over the corner of the stone, thus creating a very safe type of setting for the diamond. The breadth of the bezel can be different for various looks and designs. Semi-bezels are those areas of the bezel that has to take out to reveal a few edges of the stone.
A properly cut diamond needs no light to reflect into the sides of the stone; therefore, a bezel setting will not limit the elegance or glitter of a diamond. Some colored gemstones can be protected more with a bezel, thereby extending their shelf-life when used. The bezel setting provides a superb means of protecting the edge and the bottom of a precious stone from scratches and chips.
A cluster setting encircles a bigger center stone with many smaller stones. It manufactures to produce a pretty piece of diamond jewelry from several smaller stones. This type of setting gives the appearance of a bigger stone. At times, the cluster is joined into designs or shapes to revitalize the look of the ring. This attention-grabbing setting is usually more distinct and contributes character which can be classic.
It is used frequently for eternity rings, diamond engagement rings, and ring shoulders. The channel setting is a very clean and lengthy means of setting diamonds in a channel, making way for a proportional flow of diamonds. Make sure that the diamonds are calibrating (have similar size) to be precision set with every diamond touching the tip of another diamond.
It is a famous setting because of the diamond’s unrestricted flow across the ring with no metal in between. The diamonds lie within tiny recesses cut into every corner of the ring within the channel and are held in place tightly. Princess cut diamonds are especially good for this design together with baguettes as they take to the lines of the channel with no space in between.
Pave setting is employed when working with many small diamonds fastened into the surface of the metal with tiny beads of metal dangling from the ring itself and acting like small claws. Anytime you find more than a row of diamonds already set, it is known as a pave’ setting that ordinarily means paved with regards to diamonds.
Bead setting used for little diamonds securing them into the exterior of the metal with tiny beads of metal dangling from the ring itself and acting like small claws. These styles are kind of a traditional means of setting a few small stones onto a ring, and if the tips have a mill grain finish, this kind of setting can give an antique look. Bead settings are frequently used on wedding rings’ shoulders or to set a few stones into an engagement ring.
Like the Channel setting, the Bar setting is also often used in engagement and anniversary bands but can also be found in necklaces and bracelets. The Bar setting features a band of diamonds, with each stone fastened by a long thin bar shared amid two stones. This setting type has a modern as well as classic look. The diamonds are divulged on two sides, so you would typically see the elegance of the diamonds more.
An illusion setting is used for smaller stones; often, princess cuts are set close to one other and fastened at the base to create the illusion of a bigger diamond. The illusion setting has more depth than others and gives a visually fascinating piece. This ring setting type can be used for a small diamond encircled by patterned precious metals that give the illusion that the diamond is more significant than it truly is. In whichever setting, the aim is to create a beautiful and unique ring.
A tension-set diamond is held securely using the band’s metal pressure, which is meant to “squeeze” the diamond. The outcome is a very fashionable, modern look that can be employed when setting earrings, necklaces, and rings. This setting type is a contemporary or insightful look whereby the diamond seems as if it is suspended in mid-air. It gives way for the diamond to be seen in its entire shape and is often easy to clean.
