Diamond engagement rings are very special ornaments that have been in existence for centuries. Not only does an engagement ring mark your betrothal, but it also depicts class and style. However, the latter is only achieved when the ring is made of high-quality material, as in designer engagement rings.


What composes diamond wedding rings are typically metals which could range from steel to 24-karat gold. But gemstones like diamonds are added to make them even more appealing to buyers and fashionable.


Diamond is one of the classiest gemstones on earth. And having a diamond ring is a sure indicator of your expensive taste.

So, picking the right one can be quite difficult.

Are you looking forward to buying an engagement ring for you and your partner? If yes, look no further as, luckily, in this article, I have written a comprehensive guide on choosing the diamond engagement ring that suits you perfectly. Would you mind keeping reading as I take you further on this all-inclusive diamond engagement ring guide?

What Are the Types of Diamond Engagement Rings Settings?

Diamond Engagement Ring
  1. Solitaire or Prong Setting: This particular¬†diamond ring¬†design is one of the most common ones you’ll find today. This ring is characterized by a full metal circle with a prong or slight extension made to hold a diamond. The prong could be flat, v-shaped, or even circular. The design of the prong is made in such a way that the diamond fits perfectly into it. There are some benefits to this design. Some of them are:


  • It allows light to pass through the diamond, which makes it more attractive.
  • It upholds the diamond making it more noticeable
  • It supports several shapes of diamonds

Nevertheless, there are some downsides to this design. Over time, the prong will expand, and the diamond could fall off. If you choose this design, you must take it for inspections regularly to avoid losing your precious gemstone.

 2. Bezel Setting: 

The bezel setting is also a very popular¬†diamond engagement ring¬†design in use today. Rings made with this setting are composed of a full circle of metal and a groove perfectly designed for the diamond. One major difference between this design and the Solitaire design is that rings made with this setting have bezels. Bezels are thin pieces of the ring’s metal that hold the diamond in place. The benefits of the bezel setting are that.¬†

  • The bezels clamp down the diamond making the possibility of the¬†gemstone¬†falling off almost impossible.
  • It‚Äôs relatively easy to clean and maintain

The cons of this setting, however, include

  • ¬†A part of the gemstone is hidden, so it doesn’t showcase the full beauty¬†
  • The diamond will not have the same reflective property as it would in a prong setting.

3. Tension setting:

The tension setting is quite different from the two mentioned above. It consists of an incomplete metal circle with just enough space for the diamond to fit in. The placement of the diamond directly depends on the tension of the metal. Nevertheless, jewelers usually make tiny grooves within the metal spaces where the diamond will fit in. 

The benefits of this design include:

  • The tension setting holds the diamond in place securely
  • The¬†diamond¬†appears more brilliant in this design because it can reflect light better with minimum blockage from the metal.

The downsides to this setting are that the design may make the diamond look small and costly to resize.

4. Halo setting:

 The halo setting is a ring design where small diamonds encircle a central diamond piece on the metal ring. The small diamonds are usually lower in carats than the centerpiece and enhance its appearance. The advantages of this design on halo engagement rings include:

  • It boosts the entire brilliance of the¬†diamonds¬†as each one complements another.
  • The center diamond is secure because of the other pieces surrounding it.

Nevertheless, the main con of this setting is that the stones on it can become loose and fall off.

Can You Customize Your Diamond Ring?

Would you like to get a diamond engagement ring different from the basic designs you may have seen? Perhaps you want your name and your fiancé’s name engraved on each ring. If this is the case, then yes, you can get your custom engagement ring. But it will come with a little extra cost.
