About Ring Mountings

Ring mountings, also called settings, are one of the best ways for you to show off precious stones like diamonds, emeralds, and rubies to the world. There are several types of mountings, and they can be white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, silver, or platinum. Prong settings are most common, and they consist of four, six, or eight prongs. These are often used in solitaires. They elevate the stone and let more light pass through it. In a bezel setting, a metal band surrounds a stone to hold it in place. This protects it and makes it look larger. You can surprise your fiance with a diamond engagement ring mounting, and then allow her to personalize it by choosing the stone. Diamonds come in many different colors, including white, pink, yellow, brown, and black. Vintage ring mountings usually display beautiful, ornate metalwork. Some mountings may already have smaller accent diamonds or other stones. Explore the huge inventory on eBay to find the best ring mountings for you or the special person in your life.
