The Four Structure Styles of Engagement Rings
When it comes to buying an engagement ring, there are many things to consider, such as the type of metal and design. However, one of the most important decisions you will make is choosing the right structure style for the setting. The setting refers to the way the diamond or gemstone is secured to the ring. There are several different types of settings, but in this blog post, we will focus on the four most popular structure styles of engagement ring settings: cathedral setting, subtle cathedral, peg-mounting, and low basket styles.
The cathedral setting is named after the architectural design of a cathedral. This style of setting features arches that rise up to meet the center stone, creating a strikingly elegant look. It is the perfect option for those who want a classic and timeless look.
Cathedral settings are often paired with solitaire diamonds for a grand look. The arches can come in different shapes and sizes, ranging from simple and understated to intricate and ornate. The cathedral setting is a popular choice for those who want a ring that exudes a sense of grandeur and elegance.
Subtle Cathedral Setting
The subtle cathedral setting is similar to the cathedral setting but features only one or two arches that rise up to meet the center stone. This setting style provides a balance of elegance and practicality. It offers more security than a traditional prong setting while still maintaining a classic look.
Subtle cathedral settings are a great option for those who want a hint of the grandeur of a cathedral setting, but with a more understated look. They are also suitable for diamonds or gemstones with unique shapes, as the arches can be customized to fit the stone. The subtle cathedral setting is a great option for individuals who want a classic look with a modern twist.
Low Basket Setting
Low basket engagement rings are perfect for those who prefer a simple yet elegant design. The center stone sits low and is held in place by a basket-shaped setting. The low basket structure style is perfect for those who prefer a more practical and versatile design. We recommend this style for those who are active, wear gloves in daily life, or wear their jewelry hard.
Low basket engagement rings are perfect for those who want a simple yet elegant design. These rings feature a center stone that sits low above the band, held in place by a basket-shaped setting. The low basket structure style is perfect for those who live an active lifestyle, as the design allows the center stone to sit low on the band, keeping it secure and protected.
Peg Mounted Settings
Peg mounted rings are known for their simplicity and minimalistic design. The ring's center stone sits on top of the band, held in place by prongs extending from the band. The ring's design is sleek and modern, which makes it perfect for those who prefer a contemporary and unique look. The simplicity of the design allows the center stone to stand out and shine, making it the centerpiece of the ring.
Peg mounted engagement rings are ideal for those who love a simple, modern look that's minimalist in design. These rings feature a center stone that sits on top of the band and is held in place by prongs extending from the band. This design allows the center stone to be the focal point of the ring, making it perfect for those who want their diamond to shine and stand out.
Choosing the right setting for your engagement ring is an important decision that can greatly affect the overall look and feel of the ring, but we’ll be with you every step of the way! Consider your lifestyle, personal style, and desired level of security when selecting a setting style.
