Prong settings are available in different variations such as 4, 6, or 8 prongs. The higher the prongs, the more the diamond remains secured on the ring. These settings with their V-tipped prongs also prevent the tips of a marquise diamond from chipping.
Bezel settings are another popular marquise diamonds ring settings. The advantages of bezel settings are that the metal encircles the ring and completely protects the center stone.
