When picking a ring setting style, there are a few jewelry design features to consider. Start by looking at today's most popular designs and finding ones that fit her taste and personality.

Center Gemstone

Setting Options

The center gemstone setting is a fundamental choice for visualizing your engagement ring. The setting will put your striking middle gemstone on display and secure it firmly. Also, when deciding on a center gemstone, think about practicality—bezels and peg head settings are good examples.

Basket

The basket setting features prongs that hold the gemstone in place in a basket-like shape. It is popular because it allows maximum light to pass through the gem while keeping it low.

Trellis

The trellis setting has crisscrossed branches that give an elegant look while holding the gemstone securely in a basket.

Bezel

A bezel setting is where a thin band of precious metal surrounds a stone to hold it in place. The advantage of this kind of setting is that it makes the gemstone stand out more.

Semi Bezel

A semi-bezel is a small border of precious metal that arcs around the East and West sides of the stone. Because the border of gold does not entirely encircle the stone, more light may enter and expose its brilliant facets.

Halo

The center gemstone in a halo setting is circled by smaller accent diamonds, which makes the central stone appear more glamorous. Halo settings are famous among engagement rings today.

Three Stone

A three-stone ring typically contains a giant middle gem with two smaller stones on either side. This type of setting is commonly associated with representing a couple's past, present, and future relationship history.

Compass Point

The center gemstone is held in place by four precious metal prongs on the gem's North, South, East, and West sides for a compass-point setting.

Integrated Head

A ring may be made of a piece of precious metal or from two pieces connected with pegs. A ring with an integrated head is formed as a single piece of valuable metal, and the center stones are usually positioned lower and flush with the band.

Peg Head

A peg head is a small metal piece soldered onto the ring shank, holding the diamond higher. Most peg head settings feature four or six prongs securing the center gemstone.

Accent Gemstone Setting Options

If you'd like your ring to incorporate a touch of extra sparkle, consider selecting a style with accent gemstones. Accent gemstones are small diamonds or other jewels set into the band, making any ring appear more glamorous. When it comes to styles with accent gemstones, there are various setting options available. For example, the accent stones might only go partway around the band or completely encircles it in an "eternity" style.

Channel

A channel setting has beautifully interspersed gemstones suspended between two parallel walls of pure gold for a beautiful, elegant effect.

Pavé/Bead Set

The concentric circles of this exquisite environment are crowded with sparkling, diamond-encrusted gems. Tiny precious metal beads keep the gemstones in place.

Shared Prong

Adjacent gemstones that share prongs allow more light to pass through, enhancing their sparkle.

Bezel

A bezel setting entails a gemstone entirely encircled by a thin line of precious metal, which keeps the stone in place.

Flush

Flush settings are where the gemstones are set into the band so that only the top of it is visible. This gives a ring a smooth overall look since there's no need for metal prongs to hold up the gemstone. They can be placed anywhere on the ring as long as there's enough space in depth for it below. The setting gets its name from how 'flush' or level the stone sits to your finger when worn.

French Pavé

The metal beads holding the diamonds in French pavé settings have a small V-shaped notch underneath each diamond, and they appear as split prongs when viewed from above.

Scalloped Pavé

This technique uses metal beads with tiny U-shaped cutouts. Consequently, it has a scalloped effect, and the prongs appear split from the top.
