Solitaire Setting Styles

Prong Setting

The Prong Setting style refers to the use of 3 to 8 metal hooks, known as prongs, which secure the diamond in place slightly above the band. Prong setting is the most widely used style for solitaire setting.


 

Bezel Setting

The Bezel Setting is the style in which the diamond is surrounded by a metal rim from all around it. This securely holds the diamond in place, insuring a tight grip. The bezel setting is favorable among people with an active lifestyle.


 

Channel Setting

Channel Setting refers to the style where diamonds sit on a metal channel beside eachother and flow smoothly around the band. Since the diamonds are not elevated, there is a less chance for damage or loss.


 

Halo Setting

The Pressure or Cluster Setting style is a relatively new way of setting diamonds where a group of diamonds is clustered close together; held with small prongs which are hardly visible. This setting style creates an illusion to make the cluster of diamonds seem as one larger diamond.
