Solitaire Setting is a popular diamond engagement ring setting. The head secures the diamond. The prongs allow the diamond to catch the most light. A four-prong setting shows more of the diamond, but a six-prong setting is often more secure.
Settings with Sidestones
Settings with Sidestones, such as diamonds or gemstones, add additional sparkle or color. Popular sidestone settings are channel, which protects stones by keeping them flush, and bar-channel, which allows more light to enter the sidestones.
Three-Stone Settings have one diamond for the past, one for the present, and one for the future. Typically the center diamond is larger than the two side stones.
