One of its advantages is that the prongs in no way blocks light and allow it to pass through the ring sufficiently giving rise to its added sparkle. A prong setting can clamp onto the sides of the princess cut diamond and hold it securely on top of the ring. Among the prongs, a V-shaped prong is commonly used for securing princess cut diamonds on a ring.
Another commonly used princess cut diamond ring settings is the three stone setting. Thisring setting consists of the center stone held by two larger accent stones. The three-prong setting relies on the use of prongs along with the side accent stones to firmly hold the princess cut diamond and increase its sparkle. Channel settings are also popular for holding a princess cut diamond in the ring mounting. The two channels can securely hold a princess cut diamond discreetly.
