Choosing a diamond for an engagement ring is a difficult decision, but choosing a ring setting is equally a difficult decision. To make it easy, we have put our engagement ring setting styles into four different categories – Solitaire, Shoulder Stones, Side Stone and Colour Stone settings.
Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring Settings
A classic setting – the diamond is singularly set in prongs or in a rub over setting where the metal is arched around the stone shape to secure it in place. With prongs the diamond is either set in 3, 4 or 6 claws depending on the shape of the diamond.
Engagement Rings with Diamonds Set on the Shoulders
Adding diamonds to the shoulders of the band on a single stone engagement ring is a great way to add more dazzle to a ring. Diamonds can either be pavé set, channel set or cut down set on the shoulders of the band.
Side Stone Ring Setting
Side stone ring settings are similar to three stone diamonds rings where the centre diamond is accented with two smaller diamonds. With side stone settings you can opt for a variety of diamond shapes and sizes.
Coloured Stone Engagement Rings Settings
Adding coloured stones to a diamond engagement ring creates a brighter effect. Popular choices are Rubies, Emeralds and Sapphires.
