DIAMOND SETTING- WHY IT IS IMPORTANT?

However, the gleaming effect of diamond is based on both the gem and its settings.

A diamond ring or any particular jewellery embedded with diamond always looks stunning and beautiful when the setting of the embedded diamond is strong, durable and long lasting. Every natural diamond is not the same, has the unique characteristics of their own, that requires different settings every time. Because of its valuableness, keeping it for the lifetime or passing the valuables to the next generation the most important of all is its setting which makes it preserve for the longest duration.

Famous Diamond Setting types are-
This type of setting has been popularly liked by many people during the recent decade. Although, this type of setting was very popular during ancient days, but the curiosity and taste are gradually shifting to old days. In this set-up, bezel setting encircles the diamond, or centre stone, rather than holding the diamond with its prongs. This type of setting guaranteed the non-displacement of the precious stone.
Pros of bezel setting
If you are working with other people or come in direct contact, or use your hands while sporting, then this type of setting seems to be best suited for you, as it prevents the stone from snugging out.
There are two option for the bezel setting
i- A full bezel setting: In this set-up the centre piece is surrounded by four to five corner stone diamonds, which prevents it from the scratching or wearing down. The centre piece becomes the centre of attraction.
ii- Half-bezel setting: In this set-up the centre diamond is surrounded by two side pieces, situated in an alignment. Leaving a space on two sides.
Also known as prong setting. One of the most common, classy and popular types of setting. A prong looks like and animal claw which clutches the centre piece tightly, sticking to its place. Claw setting can come in three set-ups flat, pointed or V-shaped. There are some several features of this setup, as it allows one to see the more of diamond and less of metal surface. This unique design makes it most popular and demanding in market.
This set-up is more desirable for those who wants a ring more decorative, designer and more sparkling in finish. This set-up contains a beautiful centre piece with long channel of small stones sticked together on the grooves of the ring band. This design is most suitable for the engagement purpose, sometimes it has a small centre piece or some time it doesn’t have a centre piece. The other surrounding long cluster of gems enhances the beauty of the ring, but certainly needs extra caring.
This set-up contains pavement tracts with small diamonds alongside the ring. This setting has some semblance with the channel settings. The only difference is that pave settings contain mini prong settings for the small gems. This has more smaller sections of gems than channel settings.
The name itself is sufficient to denote as what type of setting is this. In this type of setup, several small beads are separated with small-small metal walls. This type of setting although contain considerable number of visible metals but it has the strongest capacity to hold the gem together. Each gem is stacked with two side metals, making it the most durable jewellery of all time.
Halo the round gem setting type of ring, makes it suitable for many people. It comes in various variations, as one of them can be a single halo type of gem, or other can be small beads or gems sticked together with the large centre. Although this design makes the ring stunning but needs extra caring. It can lose the side gem easily if not carefully handled. The radiance setting causes the middle stone to seem bigger—an extraordinary alternative to support the presence of a little jewel—and it builds the general shimmer of the ring. They come in different fascinating shapes, some of them even look like blossoms.
Also known as burnish setting or gypsy setting. This setting sets the precious stone into a penetrated opening in the band of the ring so the ring sits “flush” with the band of the ring. At this point, the jewel designer pounds the metal around the jewel to hold it set up. Since the designer has to pound in the piece of metal to hold the stone set-up, this setting isn’t reasonable for gentler stones, which could break all the while. This kind of setting is a mainstream decision for wedding rings, particularly men’s wedding rings, as the jewel sits safely in the band of the ring and is consequently exceptionally shielded from chipping or dropping out. Like the bezel setting, this is perhaps the most defensive and strong wedding band styles and an incredible alternative for individuals who work with their hands.
The invisible setting is an interesting decision that is frequently utilized for commitment and wedding bands. Flexible and snazzy, the imperceptible setting is ideal for the two people’s ring styles. We are completely used to seeing prong and bezel settings that hold a jewel safely set up. Be that as it may, with the imperceptible setting, you can’t perceive how the precious stone is really held which gives the ring a feeling of secret and makes you need to come in for a more intensive look. Basically, the setting is …invisible and invincible.
Frequently described as, “you know, the little specks around the edges,” milgrain detail is basically a moved surface applied to a piece of gems’ edges by a diamond setter. Not to be mistaken for the antiquated craft of granulation, that utilizes minuscule circles of metal combined set up to make plan; milgraining is a method of etching. When painstakingly pushed along the edge of a wedding ring or wedding band, the metal is framed into whatever shape the milgrain wheel is intended to cut. Frequently these are little round knocks, however they can likewise be oval or square, and of fluctuated sizes.
Bead setting is essentially used to show successions of little precious stones in strands or in constant lines. Today, the resurgence of bead setting can be seen in essentially every portion of the gems market. The craftsman bored openings in strong plates of metal and shaved away gold or platinum to shape smaller than normal dabs without any preparation. This type of set-up is pretty much difficult for the new craftsman, With the coming of better models, the advanced craftsman can now reliably accomplish similar outcomes in less time.
An illusion setting is a prong setting intended to make a precious stone look bigger than it really is. This is cultivated by a ring of metal encompassing the support of the jewel that is regularly splendid cut. This ring diffuses the framework of the stone making it look bigger. The little precious stone in the middle gives shimmer. This, thusly, reflects off the valuable metal piece. As the name recommends, from a distance this makes the dream that you’re really taking a gander at a lot bigger jewel.
In most ring set-ups, the middle gemstone is safely held set up by means of prongs that catch onto the stone on all sides. In any case, the strain setting is the lone ring style that utilizes malleable powers to stand firm on the gemstone in its situation. This idea of tension setting is very new and are in practice from recent decades. With tension setting, the precious stone or gemstone is set in an opening in the metal shank, into undetectable scores cut into the metal. The stone is then held there utilizing pressure, applied on the stone from the two sides of the setting. Ring made up of from this setting can come at a very expensive price, and once moulded then there is no way of resizing it easily.
Nick setting is considered like the channel setting. In Nick setting diamonds or stones are placed in a row, along with the metal bordering on either side. The small sized prongs are nicked through the surrounding metal to save the diamonds.
It is technological based process where with the help of laser a hole is drilled in the diamonds to reach the inclusion surface where it can be bleached with the help of acid. This process is used to improve the appearance of a diamond with the help of dark or black inclusions. There is main three types of laser cutting – The CO2 laser, the neodymium, and the neodymium yttrium-aluminium-garnet. This process improves the diamond clarity giving it a more shinny appearance.
In the above list we cited famous and known diamond setting types preferred by many customers but apart from these famous diamond settings we deal with multiple and other less popular diamond settings as well such as- Tikli, Semi-Bezel and so on.
