Ring Styles and Settings

Rings come in a variety of styles, such as solitaire, halo, three-stone, and eternity.

  • Solitaire: Solitaire rings feature just one diamond and with no other gemstones to distract from the main piece, extra emphasis is placed upon the diamond as its sparkle decorates this classic ring. When it comes to choosing a style of ring, the solitaire is iconic.

  • Halo: A halo is the addition of stones (typically diamonds) around the main, center stone of an engagement ring. A simple, classic halo engagement ring will feature round melee diamonds, set in a pave or scallop style - a refined, and timeless style.

  • Cluster: A cluster ring features multiple diamonds or gemstones closely set together in a design resembling a flower or starburst. Most commonly cluster engagement rings are crafted with smaller diamonds around a larger center, be it a diamond or any other precious gemstone.

  • Three Stone Rings: Three stone diamond rings, also known as trinity rings or trilogy rings, are rings with three diamonds set horizontally in a row. Popular as both engagement rings and anniversary rings, there are several different styles of three stone diamond rings to choose from, all of them strongly sparkling and extravagant.

  • Split Shank: A split shank setting is perfect if you are looking for a unique engagement ring style. It is where the shank splits into two, creating an open section on the band, as it meets the diamond. If you wish to draw a lot of attention to your chosen center stone, a split shank setting is a great and elegant choice.


  • Pave: The pavé setting is a ring setting that features small diamonds along the band of the ring. The French word translates to "paved," and this jewellery technique was named as such because it resembles a paved or cobblestone road.

  • Prong: The prong setting typically has four or six metal prongs that extend up from the ring's basket and over the gemstone. This effectively secures the diamond in place and allows more light to enter the stone, therefore producing more dazzle.

  • Bezel: A bezel setting is when the diamond (or stone) is encircled entirely with metal. This setting type is one of the most secure, therefore making it ideal for those with an active lifestyle due to its durability. Also, due to the lack of prongs, this style is easy to clean and maintain. The metal rim gives this setting a beautiful, modern appearance that is favoured by many.

  • Channel: Not to be confused with pave settings, channel settings are where diamonds are set in place between vertical metal rows in the band, creating the appearance of one continuous row of diamonds. Unlike pave-set diamonds, diamonds in a channel setting do not require prongs and sit flush to the band This setting is a popular choice for diamond wedding bands and other styles that require no center diamond.
