Halo Setting

  • A central stone is surrounded by a "halo" of smaller diamonds or gemstones.
  • Enhances the appearance of the central diamond, making it look larger and more brilliant.

Cluster Setting

  • Offers a unique and eye-catching appearance without the price tag of a larger stone.

Bar Setting

  • Provides a contemporary and clean appearance, ideal for those who appreciate linear and geometric designs.

Flush Setting (Gypsy Setting)

  • The diamond is set flush with the band, providing a smooth surface.
  • Excellent for those with an active lifestyle, offering a sleek look with added protection for the stone.

Double-Shank Setting

  • Features a band that splits into two, framing the diamond.
  • Adds an artistic and intricate touch, allowing for creative designs and additional accent stones.

Cathedral Setting

  • The diamond is set between arches that resemble the arches of a cathedral.
  • Creates a graceful and elegant appearance, often adding a vintage or romantic feel.

Swirl Setting

  • Ideal for those looking for a playful and unique appearance, with the swirls enhancing the diamond's sparkle.
