Types of Settings:
The setting types are chosen in the most accurate way to fit the usage area of the diamond as mentioned above. There are 5 kinds of settings types which are frequently used.
Prong Setting:In this frequently preferred diamond assembling technique, the thickness of the prong structure varies with the size of the diamond. Structural differences are entirely attributed to the design of the ring model. The diamond is placed in these prongs and compression is achieved by means of screwing. Meanwhile, the shape of the progns holding the stone is adjusted according to the customer's preferences but the adjustment to the karat weight is adjusted by the master's experience. While prongs may be preferred for the purpose of stones in 0.50 carats and more diamonds, prongs with thicker nails may be preferred for a little more glaze for lower diamond carats.The stone on the prongs is placed in the notch and compressed between the prongs.

It is a stone setting technique which is made by compressing the stone by using the tensile force of the mine. It is only this tension that holds a diamond. It is preferred in different ring models that stone is suspended in the air, especially platinum rings.
It is a method of fixing the stone by clamping it between two open ends by utilizing the applied tensile strength. Rock will not be exposed to any other effects other than this tensile force. It is preferable to apply this setting in higher tension-ed styles.
Bezel Set Setting (How to Set Diamond in a Bezel):
After a hole is opened for a diamond, it is a form of setting applied by placing the stone suitable for that slot and covering the marginal parts of the stone.
