Prong solitaire settings are the most common type of diamond ring settings. They are very popular for ladies solitaire rings. It involves fitting the diamond in a metal head or basket and securing it with a minimum of three prongs. The shape of the prongs can vary. They may be rounded, elongated or pointed. Solitaire settings allow more of the stone to be viewed than most other styles. Also it is quicker and less expensive to set than most other styles. Solitaire settings can hold large diamonds securely especially if they have 6 prong. The diamonds in solitaire mountings are more easily cleaned than in other styles. Solitaire mountings can be used to set any style of gemstone, no matter how fragile it is. Some disadvantages of solitaire prong setting are that they do not provide as smooth of a ring surface as some of the other styles. Sometimes the prongs have tendency to get caught in clothing and hair, especially if the setting is high. Prong setting doesn't protect the diamond as well as other styles since it leaves most of the girdle area exposed. For more please check out the rest of Natalia's jewelry
