There are a lot of people who like to get engagement ring settings and customizations as per their bride`s wish. But when looking forward to their settings you must know that there is a bunch of variation and combination of their design and you can always combine them with your own unique taste and stone choices. Here are a few popular ring settings that may intrigue you.
- Prong setting: It`s amongst the most common yet classic settings, with a V-shape design that holds the diamond in place and allows the maximum light to pass through it making it look more dazzling and flashy. This unique design comes in various combos some like to keep the number of prongs more for a more stable grip, as one of the drop backs of this design is that the stone part gets stuck in clothing making the fixture of stone loosen up and allowing it to fall out while others choose to keep the V-shape high or low. A good safety measure to keep is that you should constantly visit a jeweler or a craftsman and make sure that the placement is tight and the gemstone is solid in its place.
- Bezel Setting: It is the second most popular ring setting due to its contemporary look and is an everyday wearable type of ring. The diamond is girdled by a metal ring from each side, tightly clutching the stone in place. It does not consist of any prongs and can’t be snagged off by getting stuck in clothing instead it can be worn on a daily basis if you are more of an active person and likes to move a lot. It is also a antique engagement rings that most of the brides seem to love and wear.
- Tension setting: it is named after the metal band that secures the stone in place allowing the diamond to be perceived as being suspended in the midst of 2 walls of the shank. The design is carefully crafted with the help of a laser which calibrates the entire dimensions of the diamond. The stone is then clasped by pushing the shanks firmly on the sides. The tension created by the metal band allows the diamond to be held secure in its place while giving an exquisite look to it. This type of setting is assumed more vigorous as compared to the above 2 and promises a dazzling eye catching look.
- Pave Setting: The name is derived from a French word and is pronounced as “Pavey”, as the ring is paved with stones in a group. This look allows more sparkle to be achieved when the diamonds are brought in light and gives an extraordinary shine and feel to it. The stones used in such settings are rather small that surrounds a central stone larger in dimension but the design allows more uniqueness and style to it and making the central piece look enormous than it actually is. It is a great choice if you are going through engagement ring settings and want something ravishing and striking for the bride’s.
