Solitaire

This setting style shows a single diamond in your band with no accent stones around it. The most common technique for mounting a diamond solitaire is prong setting.

Ring with Side Stones

It is the counterpart style from solitaire style of setting. Side stones, or also known as accent stones can give additional brilliance to the centre diamond. There are several different rings setting with side stones include channel setting and prong setting.

Three-stone Ring

It is a popular choice also for engagement and anniversary ring, in where each diamond represents past, present and future. Like ring with side stone, there are many different setting for this one, but the most common is prong setting.

Matching Bridal Set

Some couples like to have their engagement rings be paired with matching wedding bands, like a puzzle piece, which fits with the engagement ring. There are many variations for this one from the simplest one until the most elaborated one.

Bezel Setting

This setting held the diamond in place by wrapping the diamond either completely or partially with some part of metal raising on top of the band. This type of setting is good for protecting your diamond and sometimes makes the diamond looks larger than it is.

Invisible Setting

The diamond is set very close together with the metal setting is hidden underneath so we can see a continuous surface of diamond uninterruptedly. This setting is a great way to show the brilliance of the diamond, especially princess cut diamond, since there is no bezel or prong blocking the light hitting the stone.

Prong Setting

It is the most common type of setting, which holds securely the diamond with prongs, whether 3 prongs, 4 prongs, 6 prongs or more. It is still allowing more light to enter the diamond than bezel setting, even though it is not as safe as bezel setting.

Channel Setting

Diamonds are set flush between two strips of metal which holds them in place side by side without prongs between the diamonds. It protects the edge of the diamonds and it is a very secure setting.

Pave Setting

It is similar to channel setting, has a band covered with dozens of tiny diamonds so that the metal barely shows through. The difference of this setting from channel setting is the diamonds are very small and held in place by small prongs or beads, giving an appearance of the band made of diamonds entirely.

Cluster Setting

The diamonds are set close together in the form of flower or abstract pattern. The arrangement can be airy looking or open, or even tightly arranged.

Bar Setting

Like channel setting, it uses a thin bar, can be in ‘U’ or ‘V’ shape, to hold the diamond in place on two sides.

Tension Setting

A modern one, the diamond looks float in the middle of the bar, which uses pressure to hold the diamond in place. It is secure enough in spite of the appearance.

Illusion Setting

This one adds a faceted and shiny metal plate surrounds the girdle of the diamond, which makes the diamond looks larger and more brilliant.
