We set diamonds and gemstones into gold and platinum. There are countless settings styles. The size and shape of the diamond or gemstone and the desired style of the piece will determine which style is used. The prong type, prong count, setting style all plays a part in the overall design of a piece of jewelry
A prong is a gold or platinum wire that is securely placed down onto the stone to hold the stone in place - the angles should be snugly fit to the profile of the stone. The tips should be smooth surfaces - free of snags, and thick enough to support many years of wear.
