Type of Setting

The type of setting that you choose for your diamond is important – it can completely change the way your diamond stands out. Here below is a list of different settings, and examples of jewels that we have made for our clients.

The prong-setting is very commonly used for different types of jewels, and being a simple, elegant setting it will leave all the attention for the diamond. Prong-set diamonds can be linked together in a bracelet or a necklace. It is also the setting that is used when we make our eternity rings and cuff bracelets

Bezel-setting is a setting that completely encircles the diamond. It is beautiful for any diamond, but can be especially interesting if you have chosen a small diamond, as this setting will make the diamond appear larger.

A pavé-setting is a magnificent way to set small diamonds. An incredible sparkle and life is created when many small diamonds are set together. 
Tension setting: 

This is a gorgeous way to make your diamond stand out. A tension setting gives the impression that the diamonds float freely in the setting. It looks fragile, but when properly done there is no risk of losing or damaging your diamond. 

Drilled Diamonds: 

It is also beautiful to makes jewels with drilled bead diamonds. They can be threaded like a pearl necklace, or mounted sole in earrings or other jewels. Both rough and polished diamonds can be drilled and used as beads.
Incrusting a Diamond in a Jewel: 

This is a setting that is especially beautiful for rings, and which makes it possible to set a diamond by incrusting it directly in the metal. It gives a very graphical, modern look to the jewel, and beautifully merges the jewel and the diamond together. 
Adding a Halo: 

A halo of smaller diamonds can be added to your jewel, to create a frame embracing and enhancing the center diamond. It can be made in a contrasting color, or in the same or a similar color as the center stone, which will make that diamond appear larger. Here below is a photo of a pendant with a double halo in a similar nuance to the 0.40 carat center stone, which looks much bigger than its weight.
