Types of Engagement Ring Settings

Prong

The Prong tends to be the engagement ring setting of choice. It has four hooks (claws), sometimes six, that suspend the diamond in place slightly above the band. The hooks are slender and discreet, so the diamond receives an equal amount of light from all directions. Many people prefer this setting because it makes the diamond look larger and more stunning. The Prong setting can also hold a larger sized diamond than most other settings. Prong settings can be elegant, quaint, or ornate. The shape of the prong depends on the shape and size of the diamond.

Channel

The Channel setting places the diamonds right next to each other. There are no visible hooks or metal pieces holding the diamonds in place. Instead, the diamonds sit in a metal channel, and they flow smoothly around the band. The diamonds appear to be submerged inside the band, and the exterior surface is smooth. This engagement ring setting provides better protection than most other settings. Since the diamonds aren’t elevated, there is less chance of damage or loss. This setting can also be used to enhance a middle-set diamond which sits above the band.

Bezel

The Bezel setting has a metal rim which surrounds the diamond and secures it in place. The rim extends slightly above the diamond, so the edges are well protected. Because of its sturdiness, this engagement ring setting is popular for people with active lifestyles. It’s practically impossible to dislodge a diamond from a Bevel setting without the help of a jeweler. Bezels can also be molded to fit the shape of just about any diamond. It is an extremely versatile setting.

Pave (Pa Vay)

If you love diamonds, then you’ll love this engagement ring setting. The Pave setting is basically a cluster of small diamonds encrusted along the surface of the band. Tiny beads or small prongs are used to secure the diamonds in place. The metal is barely noticeable, so the diamonds appear to be standing freely. The Pave setting requires great care because the diamonds are more exposed than with other engagement ring settings.

 

Engagement Ring Styles

There are a few common general engagement ring styles that most couples choose. We have shown the most common ones in the table below:

Style
Description
Solitaire
A ring with a single center diamond.
Multi Stone
A ring that will feature more than one diamond either around the center diamond or along the ring shank.
Tension Set
A unique ring style that uses the pressure of the setting to hold the diamond in place.
3 Stone Ring
A classic ring setting with 1 usually larger center diamond and 2 smaller diamonds on either side of the center diamond
