Diamond wedding rings have recently become a popular choice for many brides to be. The most popular are rings set with round brilliant cut or princes cut diamonds in either white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. The cut down setting is an alternative way to set the diamonds without using any beads of metal. This style of setting is usually used on a slim band of metal that usually fits the size of the diamonds. What we love most about the style is how you can see the diamonds at the side, which also allows more light to the stone – resulting in more brilliance and sparkle. As you can see with this recent cut down set wedding ring, the diamond set half way around the band are secured by prongs created from the shank. Unlike channel or pavé settings there is no visible strip of metal either side of the stones.
