The claw setting is regarded the mort traditional out of all the diamond engagement ring settings and is the most frequently used. The setting style basically features claws/prongs of metal which are fastened around the different shapes of different gem stones to secure them in place. In today’s post we’re going to look at both the 4-claw and 6-claw prong setting set around a traditional round brilliant cut diamond, as they are both popular engagement ring settings.
The 4-Claw Engagement Ring Setting
To begin the 4-claw setting is perhaps the most traditional number of claws used to set a round brilliant cut diamond. The claws can either be arranged at each corner of the round shape – creating the look of a square shape or the can go around the stone in north, east, south, west positions.
The 6-Claw Engagement Ring Setting
The 6-claw is a variation of the 4-claw setting design. The extra claws make the stone look rounder compared to the 4-claw setting. This is a slightly more detailed setting that adds more of a contemporary look. At Steven Stone we have both styles available is a mixture of precious metals from white gold, yellow gold, yellow gold and platinum.
