How many types of diamond ring settings are there?

I wish to know the types of setting to create an engagement ring.


Answer by  case (1261)

There are quite a few settings. Some of the most popular one are Tiffany Solitaire, Three Stone Ring, and Antique Setting. You also can buy a solitaire and get a wrap or an enhancer. You can always let your imagination be the inspiration and have a custom piece made.

There are 9 different types of individual diamond settings available currently. The first, and most common, is the Prong setting. Similar to the prong setting is the Bar setting. There are also the Bezel and Flush settings, which look similar. Also, you can get the Tension, Channel, Invisible, Pave, or Cluster settings. Combinations of the above are also available.

You might be confusing ring settings with cuts. Settings are usually classic, modern, or cluster. Cuts, the shape of the stone, are round, Asscher, emerald, oval, Marquise, radiant, princess, and heart. Asscher, emerald, and princess are rectangular. Princess is square. Marquise is oval but with pointed ends. Pear is pointed on one end, and oval on the opposite.
