Setting Types

After you educate yourself about the ring styles, the next step is to know about the setting type. Just bear in mind, to avoid being overwhelmed by many online information, the rule of thumb is to image her wearing the ring you picked after web scrutinising. 

Prong-Set :

Prong setting or so called claw setting is a ring setting with 4 or 6 metal claws covering the gemstone or diamond. This kind of ring setting allows for ultimate light exposure and allows for more brilliance to show up. For more secured setting you can ask for a double-claw setting.


Channel setting is a ring setting type encasing the smaller diamonds or stones in a metal channel. If you are looking for a snag-free setting, channel-set engagement rings are the best.

Bezel-Set :

Bezel setting engagement rings feature a fine metal frame embracing the stone or the diamond. A Bezel setting type can make the diamond/center stone look bigger or smaller. You should choose wisely! If you choose a fine encasing metal matching the color of your stone, you can enhance the overall look! To clarify what was said, pick a thin white gold or platinum frame for your center diamond and you are all set for enhancing the look of it.


Tension setting engagement rings showcases a sleek design with a diamond floating on the gallery. This may not be the most secure engagement setting type as the diamond in the center is hold by the pressure from the two sides of the metal setting.

Pave-Set :

In this particular engagement ring setting, you can see more of the sparkle of the diamond rather than the metal beads covering it. The pave setting is a setting where the accent diamonds or gemstones are delicately set with metal beads showcasing more of scintillation or colorfulness.
