CZ Engagement Rings with Sidestones Settings
A common type of setting, especially for solitaire rings with sidestones, is the prong setting in which the stone is held securely in place by prongs that are attached to the central setting of a ring, known as the head or basket. Each prong extends upward and outward from the head, gripping the stone with an arch at the top.
An advantage of the prong setting is that it allows a substantial amount of light to enter the cubic zirconia from the flat exposed face also known as the crown in a round-cut stone. Sometimes, the stone can be raised above the shank to increase this effect.
The sidestones are then held within the surrounding band in a channel setting. In this setting, the gemstones are set flush between two strips of metal that hold them in place side by side with no additional prongs between the stones. This type of setting protects the edge, or girdle, of the gemstone, and is a very secure setting. Channel-set gemstones provide a smooth setting making them less likely to get tangled in hair or clothing.
