Invisible Set Engagement Rings Facts

A less-popular, but very beautiful looking style of engagement ring setting is the "invisible set" engagement ring. Invisible set engagement rings were created to give the illusion of one large gemstone when in fact they are made up of several smaller diamonds. The trick of invisible set engagement rings is that they actually use numerous smaller gemstones clustered together, almost touching to appear as one large diamond in the ring. There are no spaces or metals separating the gemstones. To the naked eye, the closely set gemstones appear as one big, beautiful gemstone - until you look closely at the ring.

Invisible set engagement rings use smaller, less costly and less valuable diamonds making the ring cheaper. Arranging a group of less expensive gemstones to look like one unit is cheaper than actually buying one large gemstone. Since the value of the diamonds are much less, and the look is not the same as a single diamond, most brides don't choose this option. It is definitely a lower cost route to go and invisible set engagement rings are often sold at lower end box stores in the mall. Novori sells thousands of affordable certified diamonds so that you should not have to resort to an invisible set ring. Why not buy the real thing? The catch is that fancy invisible set engagement rings aren’t easy to create, and sometimes can be expensive because of the labour involved to set the diamonds. That’s why the setting isn’t as popular as traditional engagement ring settings.

The Beginning of Invisible Set Engagement Rings

Invisible set engagement rings are believed to have originated in France more than 100-years ago. However, the difficulty of creating an invisible set turned many jewelers away from the technique. It is a time consuming process requiring an amazing amount of skill. Trying to arrange gemstones into perfect precision without the use of prongs or bezels is almost impossible.

Due to the difficulty, most high quality invisible set engagement rings these days are only available from expensive, upscale jewelers who market the setting as a unique look. But is it really so hard to create an invisible set?

Invisible set engagement rings are "invisible set" because the gemstone frame is not visible. The frame for the gemstones is actually located below the surface. The gemstones are then shaped, and carefully fitted within the frame. If not done correctly, a bad fitting will result in loose gemstones that easily fall out of the ring. But when done correctly, the gemstones fit snugly within the frame.

Correctly created invisible set engagement rings provide an extremely secure gemstone fit. The gemstones are basically "locked" into position, and have no room to move. Invisible set engagement rings, when done correctly, are safe enough to be worn on a daily basis. You can also combine an invisible set with a more traditional set. For example, a prong set solitaire engagement ring can utilize invisible set diamonds on its band.

Which Jewelers Create Invisible Set Engagement Rings?

Not all jewelers are able to create invisible set engagement rings. Because of the settings difficulty, it’s not a technique that all jewelers desire to learn. However, this doesn’t stop some unqualified jewelers from mass producing badly made invisible set engagement rings, and selling them to the unsuspecting public.
