Small grooves where the diamond meets the band to hold the diamond in place to create a suspended look. Contrary to popular belief, this type of ring setting is actually quite secure. It allows lots of light to shine through the diamond as it floats in place, which we all know is what makes an engagement ring really pop!

However, this type of ring can be customized by changing the size of the diamond, as well as the colour of the band. Choose from white, yellow, or rose gold.

3. Bypass solitaire
A bypass setting combines the classic look of the solitaire ring, with the bling bling vibe of more intricate designs. The curving lines lie nicely on her ring finger. The lower setting of the ring also eliminates the troubles of a prong setting, like getting caught on fabrics throughout the day. The diamond is set back, so it’s a bit more protected from regular wear and tear.
One of the most loved features of the bypass solitaire engagement ring is its curving lines around the diamond. This style creates a desirable infinite look—because your love for your lady is infinite.

4. Classic prong solitaire
The classic solitaire ring is a fantastic choice for a timeless beauty. A small to medium sized diamond sparkles brilliantly—appearing beautifully oversized—in its setting on a single, thin band. Even though the band is simple, the engagement ring is anything but plain. This kind of solitaire diamond will steal not only your girl’s heart, but the whole show as it pops from her ring finger.
The classic ring pictured is a claw set solitaire with a fine band. The claw setting allows more light into the diamond, which we all know means more sparkle! To customize this type of ring, choose the size, cut, and colour of the diamond, as well as the colour of the band: white, yellow, or rose gold, or platinum.

5. Classic prong solitaire
This ring is very similar to the previous one, but the medium band with creates a whole different look. Classic claw set solitaire rings have been the most popular engagement ring for years. The pronged claws let maximum light shine, and the raised diamond says, “I’m taken.”
However, the width of the band makes all the difference. Small to medium sized diamonds shine brightest on thin bands because it creates an illusion of a larger size. A small diamond might look extremely small on a wider band. If you’re planning on buying your beau a big rock, a medium sized band would be more secure, and better fitting.
This engagement ring can be customized for your girl’s style at Jewels on Ninth. Choose your diamond shape and size, as well as the colour of the band.
