Models and settings for a diamond solitaire ring

The model and the setting are two factors that you should consider when choosing a diamond solitaire ring. They can exert a strong influence on the design of the ring and give a value to the diamond, which symbolizes the love of the future groom.

The models

The metal and the style of the model are important when choosing a ring. Thinking of the preference of the future bride, the groom has a choice between platinum or white, yellow, red and black gold.

The model can be classic or have a more complex design. In some cases you can also opt for a trilogy ring. This style differs from the classic solitaire ring because it has three diamonds which symbolizes the past, the present and the future.

The design of the Toi & Moi model is suitable for two diamonds. In contrast to the design of the trilogy ring, they symbolize the relationship between two souls.

Some solitaire rings also offer the possibility to surround the central diamond with small diamonds and different types of stones. This type of model is called a ‘halo ring’.

The setting

The setting means the placement of the diamond in the ring. You can choose from a lot of settings, namely: chaton setting, tension setting, rail setting, bezel setting, channel setting, pave setting, cathedral setting and cluster setting.

The chaton setting is the most common setting for solitaire rings. This setting emphasizes the value of the central diamond and accentuates its spark.

Another original setting is the tension setting in which the diamond is held by the two sides of the ring, with compression springs at both sides. With this setting, the perfect diamond is exposed to light and looks pretty in combination with the bride’s hand.

The bezel setting is perfect for women who tend to wear their engagement ring while doing their household duties. Typical for this type of setting is that the diamond is continuously supported. With this method, the diamond is better protected than in a ring with a tension setting.
