Choosing The Setting Styles

You can choose from several different diamond engagement ring settings:

This is the most popular engagement ring setting. It catches the most light with the prongs positioned at the center diamond. A four-prong setting shows a bit more diamond, while a six-prong setting provides a margin of security.

Side Stones
To add sparkle or color, you can choose settings with side diamonds or gemstones. Side stones are protected with channel settings to prevent abrasions by keeping the stones flush with the ring. More light will also enter the side stones because of the bar channel setting which creates a slopped edge of brilliance.

Matching bands
Settings with matching wedding bands can be considered if you prefer the wedding band to be worn on the same finger as your engagement ring.

Three-stone settings
Three diamonds are set in a three-stone setting for a classic ring that is truly unique and expresses your creativity. The three-stone concept symbolizes one diamond for the past, one for the present, and one for the future.
