Diamond Ring Types by Design and Number of Stones
Diamond Rings by Type of Setting
- Prong settings hold the diamond with metal projections, normally four of them, although settings with added prongs are also used.
- Bezel settings enclose the stone with a band of metal, completely or partly. Settings, where only one part of the stone’s outer edge is held by a metal band, are known as partial bezel settings.
- Invisible settings keep diamonds in a metal frame that is underneath the stone and is not visible from the top.
- Channel settings, carry diamonds in a channel formed in the ring’s band. Typical channel frame containing little diamonds
- Tension settings hold the diamond within the two ends of the ring by using pressure, not by applying prongs, bezels, or different type of mounting device.
Diamond Rings by Diamond Shape and Cut
- Round diamonds are by far the most common. The classic round cut designed to increase the stone’s brilliance, which surpasses that of stones with different cuts.
- Oval cuts are also familiar, although not as much as round cut. Other common cuts are created from the oval cut: the marquise cut (whose two ends are fine instead of rounded), the pear cut (an oval cut with one pointed end), and the heart cut (an oval cut with one pointed end and a cleft on the opposite rounded end).
- Rectangular cuts include the famous princess cut, the emerald cut (a square cut with trimmed corners) and the Asscher cut (a square emerald cut), the cushion cut (with rounded rather than sharp or cut corners), and the radiant cut.
- The traditional triangular cut is referred to as a trillion cut or trilliant cut. The sides of this cut’s triangular form can be straight or slightly rounded.
Types of Diamond Rings by Metal
- Platinum rings are among the most familiar to set diamonds in because of the tone and strength of the metal.
- White gold diamond rings are also common, as they are comparatively affordable while but being pretty durable.
- Yellow gold rings wear out faster than white gold or platinum ones, as yellow gold is comparatively softer. This metal is a good choice for diamonds of lower colour grades because the yellow tone in such stones is made a bit less visible by the yellow colour of the ring.
