Couple Promise Rings: a range of beautiful variations

There are numerous setting options for rings that can be used to display the gemstones of the ring. The setting can either completely or partially enclose the stone.

Whether modern or classic, round or square: the range of ring settings for wedding rings and all other rings is vast. The ring setting that suits you best is based on your personal style and preferences. The ring's purpose - whether it's intended for everyday wear or only for special occasions - as well the size, cut and number of stones will influence the appropriate setting of the ring.

The most well-known ring setting is the prong setting. It is perfect for a solitaire ring that has an oval or round gemstone. The number of prongs used to hold the stone depends on the piece of jewelry and the level of security desired. For example, there is the 4-prong setting and the 6-prong setting.

Bezel setting for larger stones

A bezel setting refers to a type of ring set-up in which the gemstone is securely placed within a bezel made of metal. This setting technique was developed to protect the gemstone and emphasize its beauty.

The bezel is made from various precious metals such as white gold platinum, silver or gold. Regardless of the material, it offers a good balance between elegance and security as it holds the gemstone securely while allowing enough light to highlight its beauty.

Chaton setting: For round stones

A chaton setting, also known as a ring setting, is a kind of setting in which a gemstone is set into a hemispherical metal frame. This type of setting is typically used to reflect light from all angles.

Box setting and bezel setting: ideal for square stones

In a box setting the gemstone is placed inside a flat, open metal box setting and then positioned on the rail of the ring. The setting is usually square or rectangular to cover the edges of the gemstone precisely. This kind of setting works well with larger stones, in particular rectangular stones like emeralds and diamonds in different designs or shapes like the princess-cut.

The bezel setting is a different advancement of the box setting. The bottom is open, allowing for optimal light transmission. This results in an improved luminosity.

Jewel setting: Set directly inside the ring

In the setting, the gemstones are placed directly into the ring. They are positioned inside small depressions within the ring, which allows for a perfect hold. Smaller stones, in particular, can be processed perfectly with this.

Channel setting and pave setting

In the channel setting only two metal walls on opposite sides can hold the gemstone. The gemstones around it can be used to reinforce the hold. The pave setting is a variation of the channel setting. In this setting, the small stones are secured by touching the stones. This is typically found in rings with halo designs.
