An engagement ring is a reflection of your personality and good taste. Choosing a setting that reflects your unique sensibilities can make all the difference when you aim to create a lasting impression. Whether it is a fabulous, classic setting or a sleek, modern design, you can be assured that we have the setting that will make the diamond of your choice into an engagement ring that is certain to dazzle.
If you're thinking of the traditional engagement ring, The Prong setting is a classic. Also known as the claw setting, this setting elevates and holds the diamond in place with a number of prongs ranging from four to six.
It may be traditional, but The Prong is anything but boring. A ring guard, wrap or diamond bands can make it your own. These options frame the larger diamond and make it more prominent while adding a style all your own.
If you’re looking to show off the diamond, The Prong setting is for you.
The glamorous Channel Setting is frequently used in wedding or anniversary bands. In this setting, the stones have no metal separating them and are set in line next to each other. The metal's outer edge is expertly manipulated over the edges of the stones creating an exterior surface that is silky smooth.
The Channel Setting protects the thin perimeter and the widest part of the diamond called the girdle. This will ensure beauty and durability over the years.
The Bar Setting lines up the diamonds much like the Channel Setting. However, each of the stones is separated and held by a bar of metal. This setting is popular in bracelets and necklaces as well as wedding and anniversary rings.
A seamless blend of the traditional and modern, the Bar Setting exposes both sides of the diamond and reflects their brilliance.
A Bezel Setting holds the stone with a rim surrounding the gem. This setting is perfect for unusual stone shapes as it can be custom molded to fit. In addition, the Bezel Setting can surround the stone completely or be open in the back creating a truly unique piece.
In addition to an engagement ring setting, a Bezel Setting can be used to create a coordinating set of earrings, necklace or bracelet. In addition, the stunning look of a warmer colored diamond against the background of yellow gold in a Bezel Setting can’t be overstated.
Distinguished by a dome-shaped band with the stone inserted midway and flush, the Gypsy Setting is a continuous piece which gradually increases in thickness near the top of the band. Also known as a flush mount, shot or burnish setting, the Gypsy Setting, like the Bezel Setting, exposes only the crown of the stone.
Often seen in men's jewelry, it is far from masculine when paired with a center stone in an engagement ring. The pristine and level lines of the Gypsy Setting add shine while drawing the eye to the sparkling center diamond.
Show off a beautiful diamond in its entirety with the Tension Setting. The stone appears suspended in mid-air in this highly contemporary, sophisticated look. As the name implies, the diamond is held in place by the tight approximation of the metal bands flanking either side.
While the Tension Setting is used in necklaces and earrings as well, it creates a futuristic look in an engagement ring which is sure to draw compliments. The Tension Setting is easy to clean and the sparkle of the whole diamond is on display.
The Illusion Setting makes the most of small stones. One small stone can be enhanced by patterned precious metals surrounding it and making it appear larger. Another option is a cluster of diamonds can be set in a nest of sparkle.
The Illusion Setting uses the jeweler's skill to create a unique and attractive engagement ring. Such an intricate setting gives the small stones the visual impact of a larger diamond. It makes a very unique and attractive engagement ring.
As with the Illusion Setting, the Cluster Setting gives a grand appearance by using several smaller stones. This setting uses a larger stone in the center and is surrounded by several smaller stones.
Cluster Settings can be formed into shapes and designs further adding to the unique character of an engagement ring. A truly one-of-a-kind design can be achieved through a Cluster Setting and this engagement ring will be viewed as a unique style that is all your own.
