Consider also how regularly the ring will reasonably be cleaned and kept up, as specific settings require more upkeep than others.
Below are 17 Types of Different Stone Setting for Rings:
1) PRONG SETTING and SOLITAIRE SETTING
The most well-known and great ring setting is known as a prong setting. A prong is a little metal paw that grasps the precious stone firmly, holding it set up. Prongs can be adjusted, pointed, level, or V-molded (the last being the most well-known for princess-cut precious stones).
Most prong settings highlight either four or six prongs; with the previous, you can see a greater amount of the jewel, yet the last is safer. An advantage of this setting is that there is a base nearness of metal so that there's more jewel to see and all the more light that can go through the precious stone, consequently adding to its splendor.Pros of a Prong Setting

2) THE TIFFANY SETTING
In 1886, Tiffany and Co. experimentally built up a particular solitaire six-prong setting to expand the light profit for the jewel. This plain-band setting has come to be known as "the Tiffany setting," recognized essentially by the "blade edge" of its pole and the structure of its prongs.

3) BEZEL SETTING
The bezel setting is the second most famous ring setting because of its advanced look and reasonableness for a functioning way of life. Rather than holding the jewel with prongs, the bezel setting encloses the precious stone, or focus stone, with a slender metal edge specially crafted to hold the stone firmly set up.
Because of this bezel, the precious stone is held more safely set up than it would be in a ring that utilizes prongs. This makes the bezel setting one of the most solid of the wedding band styles.
A bezel setting can be a full or incomplete setting: a full bezel encompasses the jewel while a halfway bezel leaves the sides open. It's an extraordinary decision for medical attendants, educators, and others searching for a ring that won't catch and will enough ensure the jewel.Pros of a Bezel Setting

Because of this bezel, the precious stone is held more safely set up than it would be in a ring that utilizes prongs. This makes the bezel setting one of the most solid of the wedding band styles.
With the assistance of lasers used to align the specific components of the jewel, the gem specialist expertly cuts minuscule sections into the sides of the band, or shank, so the precious stone, or different valuable stone, is truly held by the weight of the handcrafted metal band driving into the sides of the stone.
Pressure style settings highlight a practically identical look of precious stone suspension however are more affordable and confused to make.

The precious stones, or different gemstones, are set intently together into the notches of the channel and beautify the sides of the band or the whole band. This setting is likewise mainstream for wedding rings or stackable rings that highlight just littler stones and no inside stone.

This setting is otherwise called a dab setting and on account of particularly little stones, might be known as a micro pavé setting. Jewels are supposed to be pavé-set when they are as little as .01-.02 carats and any littler than that would be called micro pavé.Pros of a Pavé Setting

The corona setting causes the middle stone to seem bigger—an incredible choice to support the presence of a little jewel—and it expands the general shimmer of the ring. They come in different fascinating shapes, some of them even look like blossoms.
A radiance setting, at that point, can be an approach to get a good deal on a littler carat precious stone while not giving up the general appearance of the ring.
