Jewellery is an integral part of every woman’s life especially if it is the engagement ring. The design of engagement rings in Canberra has undergone many transformations to suit the preference of fashion conscious women population. Selecting the engagement ring is stressful and confusing for the couple. You might think that your task is over when you have decided on the perfect stone for the engagement ring but that is not the case. After selecting the stone you need to select the cut, stone setting and of course, the band of the ring.
The setting of the engagement ring is as important as selecting the stone because the settings not only showcase the cut and clarity of the diamond but also reflect the bride’s personality. Here is a guide to help you select the perfect engagement ring setting for you and your partner.
Prong Set– The prong setting consists of four to six claws that hold the diamond securely in place and also looks radiant as it allows light to enter the stone at all angles. You need to decide if pointed, round, or V-shaped prongs are best for your stone and keep in mind longer shapes like pear or marquise benefit from V-shaped prongs that also protect the stone, while flat prongs are best for Emerald and Asscher cuts.
Tension Set– In the tension setting, the stone is held in place by the pressure exerted by the two sides of the ring, making it look as if it is suspended in the air. This setting is perfect for hard stones like diamonds, sapphires, and rubies as other stones might not be able to withstand the pressure.
Channel Set– This setting is most common for wedding bands and consists of a row of diamonds running along the interior of the wedding band with no metal between them. It is perfect for smaller stones which are securely fastened by horizontal bands.
Bezel Set– In a bezel setting, the centre stone is completely surrounded by the metal of the ring. This setting looks very nice with round brilliant and emerald cut stones and white metal setting with white diamonds.
