Choosing the accent stone Setting Style

If you're looking for a ring with diamond accents, there are several styles to choose from. Some popular styles include halo and diamond set bands, which can be set in scallop, pavé, shared prong, or distance settings. Scallop and pavé are classic choices for the smaller diamonds that run along the band or encircle the halo, while shared prong or distance are a more modern and distinctive option.

Scallop

The metal work of a scallop set diamond band features edges that expose the sides and table of the diamonds, allowing ample light to reach each stone. This unique design results in a band that some consider to be more sparkly than a pavé or channel set band.

Pave'

This design showcases diamonds arranged in alternating pattern with small ball claws, which hold the diamonds securely in place, and bordered by a sleek strip of metal. The pavé setting style is an excellent option for achieving the vintage look of engagement rings, especially when combined with 'milgrain' detailing.

Choosing A Prong Style

When it comes to setting diamonds, the most common options are the 4 or 6 prong settings. The 6 prong setting, also known as the "Tiffany Setting", is a timeless choice where 6 symmetrical prongs hold the center diamond securely. On the other hand, the 4 prong setting is also a classic option that some prefer as it uses less metal around the diamond, giving it a chance to shine on its own instead of being hidden within the setting.

The diamond tips and corners of shapes like princess cut and pear shape are protected by box prongs.

Bezel or Rubover

Have you heard of the rubover or 'bezel' setting? It's a contemporary style of setting where the metal is smoothly pushed up and over the diamond's outer edges, resulting in the diamond being fully encased by the metal.

Milgrain

Milgrain is a delicate embellishment that adorns the edges of jewelry. This intricate detail is achieved by creating a fine, beaded texture, often found on Vintage style rings.
