A prong setting – which usually has 4 or 6 prongs – is one of the most popular settings on the market, and is used for all types of faceted stones.
Similar to the Prong setting, the decorative setting uses Prongs but has a decorative style to the lower parts of the prong.
A versatile choice used for any type of stone, the bezel setting sees the diamond set deep inside of the mounting while the metal is folded over the stone to create a strip that holds the diamond in place.
This setting utilizes essentially the same approach as the Bezel setting, except a Half Bezel is when the stone’s girdle is not fully covered.
Another setting that can be used for any type of stone, the channel setting sees the goldsmith creating a channel – as the name would suggest – and then cut seats in it where the diamond will sit. After each diamond is placed in the new channel, the goldsmith secures the stones in place by hammering the upper sides of the channel walls.
With pavé settings, several small gemstones – usual diamonds – are set closely together, separated, and held in place by small beads of the setting metal. This produces what resembles a continuous string of diamonds or other gems on its surface.
An illusion setting enhances the perceived size of the diamond within a setting. Most illusion set engagement rings present a small diamond surrounded by patterned precious metal.
Similar to the Channel setting, the Bar setting sees that diamonds are set between bars, where they are first nested in grooves and then overlapped by metal using a hammering tool. Like the Tension setting, this also requires gemstones to have a Hardness level of 9 or above.
Trellis rings feature overlapping claws. Prongs overlap from each side, crossing the setting. Many have a distinctive X shape when viewed side-on. This engagement ring setting style is hugely popular.
