There are a number of different ways to set a precious stone into an engagement ring, however the most popular on the market today are the prong, pave and channel settings. When you are going to purchase your engagement ring it is essential that you know which setting you are looking for.
Prong setting or as they are more commonly know the ‘claw’ setting it one of the most popular setting used today for engagement rings or any type of jewellery that is containing a precious stone. This setting is predominantly used to set solitaire diamonds onto an engagement ring. Essentially the prongs provide a basket for the diamond to sit in as well as elevating the diamond up slightly to ensure that it is surrounded with light so the diamond sparkles.
Pave setting is made up of lots of small precious stones, more often than not diamonds which are set closely together on the top of the ring band. The stones are separately held into place with a small amount of setting metal which is shaped like a small bead and is very discreet. This is to achieve a continuous uninterrupted line of diamonds.
Channel setting this is the most popular setting when you are looking to purchase wedding jewellery, but it can also be found on eternity rings. The precious stones are set into a ‘channel’ of metal which gives the appearance of a continuous flow of gemstones. This setting can be mixed with the prong setting so a larger diamond can be set into the middle of the ring achieving an extremely glamorous and sophisticated look.
