The timeless, tried and true favorite is the prong setting. Small metal prongs are used to hold the ring's gemstone(s) in place above the metal band. Prongs come in a variety of shapes and styles, from simple peg settings holding one stone to elaborate, multi-stone settings with accent stones!
WHAT IS A SOLITAIRE ENGAGEMENT RING?
Simply put, when referring to jewelry, the word “solitaire” is used to describe an item featuring one diamond or other gemstone. The solitaire, diamond engagement ring with a prong setting is a highly recognized style that continues to be sought after.
4 PRONG SOLITAIRE SETTING
A four prong setting is a top choice as it results in minimal obstruction of the ring's featured stone. It's versatile and can be paired with popular stone shapes, including round cut, emerald cut and princess cut.
6 PRONG SOLITAIRE SETTING
The six prong setting, typically used with larger, round and marquise cut stones, provides more security for your stone. On the downside, it means more metal components covering up more of the gemstone's surface.
