The setting of your ring influences design of your ring and when it’s about a diamond ring that lasts forever, you need a setting that also lasts longer. A ring is made of two parts technically: the body of ring, head or gallery and the shank. The setting is made in such a way that it gives perfect security to your diamond.

Herein prongs work like small claws and rise up for grasping the diamond. They are able to hold stone of any size, but are used typically for holding large centre stone.
These settings are based upon the diamond’s shape. You will most often find four to six prongs holding a diamond upwards. However, both prong settings are safe and secured, but four prong setting allow you seeing more of the stone.
  • Halo Setting

Moreover, this setting is the most famous with celebrities as it creates an amazing diamond look which is delicate and feminine. These settings can be squared off or round on sides and combines allure of diamonds with securing of prong.

  • Channel Setting
