Looking for a setting that's a classic or totally unique? You decide. A traditional setting or one that shouts a modern sensibility? It's up to you. Here at Hennings Jewellers we have a wide variety of settings to choose from. Whichever you choose, your ring will be a beautiful reflection of you. After all, it is your time to shine.
A single diamond set in a traditional, plain mounting, usually with four or six claws. This is a traditional engagement ring, and can be personalized with shoulder diamonds or a plain band to accentuate the centre stone. Claws are most often made from white gold or platinum.
This setting is often used for wedding and anniversary bands. A Channel setting sets the stones right next to each other with no metal separating them. The outer ridge of metal is then worked over the edges of the stones. This protects the girdle area of the diamonds better than a bead or claw setting and provides a smooth exterior surface.
Similar to the Channel setting, this type of setting is also most commonly used in anniversary and wedding bands, but can also be seen in bracelets and necklaces. A bar set ring contains a band of diamonds where each stone is held by a long thin bar shared between two stones. The Bar setting combines a contemporary and classic look
With a Bezel setting, a rim of metal encloses the stone and surrounds the gem. Bezels can have straight edges, scalloped edges, or can be moulded into any shape to accommodate the stone. Bezel set diamonds are used in earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Warmer-coloured diamonds look stunning when bezel set in yellow gold.
A tension-set diamond is held in place by the pressure of the band's metal, which is designed to "squeeze" the stone into place. The result is a highly contemporary, fashionable look and can be used to set necklaces, earring and rings.
