Components of a Semi-Mount Ring

This is a great choice for those who like to change the looks of their rings after some time. Below are the details of the components in a semi-mount diamond ring.

This is the round cut component of the ring that slips around the finger and is also referred to as a band.





The head holds the center diamond in position. It could either be a bezel or have prongs. It may or may not have the same metal as in the mounting. If you go with a different color, it will create an interesting contrast.
