Together with metal type, and the shape of your diamond, engagement ring settings play a key role in showcasing your diamond to its greatest advantage. The setting is also an important consideration when determining the overall style of your perfect ring. You should also bear this in mind if you decide to design a bespoke ring for your diamond.
Remember that your engagement ring will only be worn on its own for the duration of your engagement. Thereafter, it will mainly be coupled with your wedding band. You can buy wedding sets, where both rings are purchased together. This option may save you some money, and is also a great idea if you have a large diamond and setting, as the wedding band can be specially shaped to fit the two rings together.

The Forevermark Setting™ is the signature setting from Forevermark. Inspired by the shape of the Forevermark icon, The Forevermark Setting™ is the ultimate in simple, classic elegance. The four-pronged mount delicately cradles the Forevermark diamond at its centre and is a design specially created to allow maximum light to travel through the diamond.
The prong setting is sometimes also referred to as a solitaire, or claw, setting. As the classic ring setting for a diamond engagement ring, this iconic setting puts the diamond at the heart of the ring. The claws, or prongs, that secure the diamond allow light to travel through the diamond, maximising its beauty and sparkle. Four-prong and six-prong settings are the most popular, each with its own particular look: Four-prong will add a geometric appearance to your ring whilst six-prong will add more floral or lace like flourish.
One consideration of prong settings is the prongs can snag on clothing or other materials, especially if they are high-set. A lower-set prong setting might be more practical if your partner has an active lifestyle.
A channel setting is where smaller diamonds are set into a groove, or channel, in the band of the ring so that a thin metal strip is visible either side.
The chic bezel setting encircles a central diamond with a thin metal rim custom-made to hold the diamond tightly in place. A bezel setting can be a full or partial setting: a full bezel completely surrounds the diamond whereas a partial bezel leaves the sides open.
The tension setting gets its name from the innovative way a metal band secures the diamond in place. As a result the diamond appears suspended between the two sides of the shank.
The halo setting refers to the placement of diamonds in a concentric circle or square around a central diamond. In some respects the halo setting makes the centre diamond appear larger so this can be a great option to if you want to maximise your budget and maintain the striking appearance and sparkle of your diamond engagement ring.
The halo setting is a versatile option as the halo of diamonds can be set with a different colour metal, or with different coloured diamonds, resulting in a ring whose contrasting colours make a distinctive statement. Halos are often paired with pavé bands, which add a further touch of glamour.
A flush setting sets the diamond into a hole in the band of the ring so that the diamond sits “flush” with the band. This type of setting is a popular choice for wedding bands, especially men’s wedding bands, as the diamond sits securely in the band of the ring and is therefore highly protected.
