Which Ring Setting is Best

Choosing a special ring for yourself or your loved one? Consider which design will show off that sparkly gemstone perfectly

Which ring Setting is best ?

A stone setting is so much more than a means of securing your favourite gemstone. 

When a Jeweller decides on the type of setting he is creating an integral design feature of the ring.

Whilst some gemstones require certain settings for wear ability and practicality there are ways that they can be modified.  This will help the finished look reflect a contemporary, vintage or traditionalist feel.

An experienced and creative jeweller will be able to balance both design with the best and most protective setting to show off the gemstone.

When choosing a special ring for yourself or your loved one, consider which design will show off that sparkly gemstone perfectly.

 

Types of Setting

The Claw  

Tanzanite & Diamond Ring  

A frequently used setting, that tends to show off faceted gemstones really well.

The claws by elevating the stone allows the facets to catch the light beautifully, making the ring an instant eye catcher.

The claw setting is most commonly used for setting larger stones and engagement rings.

Choosing a four clawed ring will give you a bigger view of the gemstone and a six claw a more secure fit.

The Channel 

Diamond Emerald Channel Set Ring

Another favourite, often used for eternity rings is the channel setting.

The best designs create a continuous effect with perfectly matched stones in both colour and size.

Using a channel with ledges cut into the edges, the jeweller is able to fold metal to grip the gemstones.

This creates a very smooth neat setting that offers more protection of the stones, it also sits beautifully between an engagement and wedding ring.

 

The Gypsy/Invisible

This design is popular for those that like a clean and minimal look with an unfussy finish to their jewellery.

This design of ring uses faceted gemstones or cabochons with angles at the sides.

The chosen stones are sunk into the metal so that they become flush with the ring.

 

Rubbed Over

The rubbed over setting  similar to the gypsy is one of the most secure designs for rings there is.

A smooth clean finish that is very easy for the wearer, because it won’t catch or snag on their clothes.

A ring that may also suit the more active wearer because of its secure design.

 

Tension 

The tension setting relies on the shank of the ring to hold the stone in place. It therefore only has two areas of contact to keep it in place.

This type of ring is not always recommended due to the fact that the stones may fall out easily.

Although todays methods have improved significantly the longevity of the design.
