A prong setting embraces the diamond with three, four or six individual prongs. A claw setting with four prongs makes the diamond appear quite square, whereas a setting with six prongs is ideal for emphasising a rounder shape. A pear-shaped diamond is usually held in a prong setting with three claws. Unlike the bezel setting, the diamond centre stone is fully exposed in a prong setting.
A solitaire ring is a one which features a gold or platinum frame and a single stone at the centre. Since a prong setting displays the whole diamond, this setting is the preferred choice for a solitaire ring.
The greater amount of light striking a diamond with a prong setting increases its brilliance.
To remove grease and dust, and make the diamond sparkle again, all you have to do is soak the ring. Make a mixture of lukewarm water, add a drop of detergent or ammonia, and then brush it with a soft toothbrush. In any case, never try using household cleaners. They contain chemicals which might damage your jewellery. Does your solitaire diamond jewellery look very dull, or is your jewellery scratched? Then we recommend having your jewellery looked after professionally by your BAUNAT expert.
