Types Of Gemstone Ring Setting Styles

Three stone ring setting

The three stone ring setting is common with gemstone rings. The setting represents the couple’s past, present, and future. To make the setting interesting, in most of the cases, the two smaller stones are of a different gem while the larger center stone is that of your choice. If you don’t want to attract a lot of attention to your ring, use identical gems.

Bezel setting

The setting is very popular with people leading active lives. These include teachers, nurses and other professionals that use their hands most of the time. Instead of the prongs holding the gemstone, the setting encircles the gem thus protecting it from not only getting lost but also from damage. The setting can be partial or complete. A full bezel completely surrounds the gem while a partial bezel leaves the sides open.

Figural setting

This is a decorative setting that comes in different designs that involve different shapes including oval, pear, and marquise. From its name, this setting aims at creating different figures and objects such as flowers, leaves, and animals. When making the purchase, choose one that fits your personality.

Cluster setting style

From its name, this is a setting that “clusters” the gemstones tightly together in order to make them look like one large gemstone. The manufacturer can include one larger center stone or use many small stones of equal sizes.

Right-hand setting style

Contrary to popular believe, this setting isn’t the one that uses the right hand. The setting represents any creative ring design that makes use of geometric elements, filigree details, elaborate patterns and other beautifully done accents.

Flush setting

Also known as gypsy setting, this setting sets the gemstone in a drilled hole so that the ring sits “flush” with the band of the ring. The setting is ideal if you are looking for a man’s wedding ring as the stone sits securely in place thus it’s protected from damage and falling out.
