Like the frame around a classic piece of artwork, the ring setting around a stone is the last, perfect touch that completes your ring. Different settings will make light illuminate your gemstone in different ways, so whether you're planning to buy a ring for your lovely other half, or are purchasing one for yourself, knowing about settings for peridot rings
to help you choose the right one is always helpful! Here's more information about the different types of settings so that you can make an informed choice.
A Handy Ring Setting Guide
There are a variety of different gemstone rings and styles of settings available here at Amore Argento, all made in stunning sterling silver. You'll find garnet, amethyst, peridot rings
and more in our beautiful collection!
- What is a bezel setting? A bezel setting is a great option for those who enjoy an active lifestyle and want their gemstone to be thoroughly protected. Unlike the prong setting (which doesn't offer as much security for your peridot stone) the sterling silver setting will entirely surround the sides of your gemstone, except at the top. This does restrict the amount of light the can hit your gemstone to make it dazzle, but it's much more secure and, especially when embellished with our diamond-like cubic zirconia, can often be much more beautiful!
- What is a prong setting? A prong setting uses three, four or six thin metal prongs to hold your gemstone, which extends from the base of your ring to hold the peridot stone in place. The beauty of the prong setting is the way it elevates your gorgeous gemstone so that it can be viewed from lots of different angles, and it will also dazzle the most too, since light can freely bounce around your gemstone! We have numerous rings in the prong and bezel setting style.
- What is a semi-bezel setting? Last but not least, with a semi bezel ring you'll get the best of both worlds, as this type of setting will protect your gemstone more than a prong, but less than a completely bezel setting. The metal doesn't completely surround the stone, but just holds it on two sides. This allows light to pass through more than bezel setting would, enhancing your gemstone, but also offers brilliant protection.
There are a range of other unique ring styles available here at Amore Argento, each with their own unique disadvantages and advantages. If you require any help or advice when browsing through our collections, don't hesitate to get in touch with our expert team.
