Modern or traditional, round or square: the array of ring styles for wedding rings and all other rings is endless. Which setting you prefer most depends on your personal preference and style. The intended use of the ring – whether it's for daily wear or only for special occasions - as well the size, cut and number of stones will also influence the ideal setting for the ring.

The most commonly used setting for rings is the prong setting. This setting is ideal for a solitaire with a round gemstone or oval stone. The number of prongs to hold the stone is determined by the piece of jewelry and the level of security you want. For example, there is the 4-prong setting and the 6-prong setting.

Bezel setting for larger stones

The bezel can be made out of various precious metals such as platinum, gold, white gold or silver. It is made of various precious metals, such as platinum, gold white gold, silver.

Chaton setting for round gems

Chaton setting, also referred to as a ring setting, is a type in which gemstones are placed inside an hemispherical metal frame. This type of setting is typically used for round gemstones to reflect light from all sides.

Box setting and bezel settings are ideal for square stones

In a box setting the gemstone is set in a flat, open box setting and then placed on the ring rail. The setting is square or rectangular so that it covers the edges of the gemstone in a precise manner. This kind of setting is suitable for larger stones - particularly rectangular stones such as emeralds or diamonds with different cuts and cut shapes such as the princess cut.

The bezel setting is an additional advancement of the box setting. It is affixed at the bottom, allowing for the illumination of the light to be optimum. The gemstone will therefore have better radiating power.

Jewel setting: set directly into the ring.

In the setting of the jewels the gemstones are placed directly into the ring. The stones are set in small crannies within the ring. This allows for a strong hold. Smaller stones in particular can be processed perfectly by this.

Set up the channel and pave

In the channel setting, just two opposing metal walls hold the gemstone. The neighboring gemstones can be used to reinforce the hold. A variation of the channel setting is the pave setting where the smaller stones are held in place simply by touching other stones. This is often found in halo rings.
