- Claw setting – This is a mount, which uses metal prongs to secure the gemstone in the ring. Distinct engagement rings have a distinct number of claws and allow light to hit the stone from an array of angles, enhancing the shine of the gem.
- Bezel setting – This makes use of a raised collar wrapped around the diamond’s rim, with metal edging. It is more secure than a claw or prong setting.
- Tension setting – Here, the diamond is held in place using pressure, which makes it look like the gem is suspended in the air.
When it comes to the cut, the most popular and classic option is the round brilliant cut. It will shine magnificently against any precious metal. Platinum, rose gold, yellow gold, and/or white gold are sure to make a solitaire engagement ring look spectacular.
The second most popular diamond cut is the princess cut. A princess cut solitaire diamond engagement ring featuring a four prong cathedral setting looks exceptionally stunning since the square cut gemstone’s straight edges contrast the cathedral setting’s smooth arches.
