Claw Set Diamond Wedding Rings
A type of prong setting designed to allow for a maximum amount of light reflection, therefore enhancing your stone’s brilliance with the least amount of metal. It is a clean and timeless ring setting that works for all diamond shapes.
Bead Set Diamond Wedding Rings
Smaller prongs/metal beads are set in between each stone to help secure the stones into place. The size of the beads prongs are small meaning that they are not very noticeable. A bead setting creates a brilliant effect whilst ensuring security for the smaller diamonds. When paired with a centre stone for emphasis, this setting makes the centre stone sparkle and stand out even more.
Channel Set Diamond Wedding Rings
A channel setting is when row(s) of stones are held within a groove carved in the band, offering greater security than the prong and pave settings when it comes to smaller diamonds. Due to how the diamonds sit in the channel, the setting allows for a smooth finish with no sharp edges that may cause snagging.
Russian & Turkish Diamond Wedding Rings
A stunning design of 3 intertwined rings to create one ring that typically symbolises eternal love. The significance of this style of ring in Russian culture originally meant as a representation of the Holy Trinity. Russian wedding rings feel lovely to wear and typically is an excellent choice for someone with larger knuckles as the rolling motion will be more comfortable in taking the ring off and putting the ring on.
Tension Set Diamond Wedding Rings
A unique setting which produces a floating stone(s) look with an emphasis on the stone(s). This setting refers to the use of tension and pressure between two ends of the band to hold the stone securely. And since the shank only touches the stone in two spots, this setting leaves the stone exposed to a lot of light, producing a brilliant effect.
