The setting, or the way jewelry holds a diamond in place, is an essential factor to consider when choosing an engagement ring. This feature can influence a ring's appearance, brilliance and longevity. Plus, many people prefer specific settings over others.
Jewelers can set diamonds in engagement rings in various ways. Rings with a prong setting hold their diamonds in place with a V-shaped, flat, rounded or pointed prong. Unlike the more traditional prong settings, a tension ring uses pressure to set the diamond. Meanwhile, a bezel setting keeps the diamond in place with a thin, metal rim.
Rather than recommending a universal setting for every ring, we ask you to consider several factors that may inform your decision. Overall, the setting you choose depends on your personal style, budget and lifestyle. You'll find that some settings create a classic and elegant effect, while others are eye-catching and unique.
The best way to buy a diamond engagement ring is by working alongside a professional jeweler. You'll be able to see the diamonds under different lighting conditions, compare distinct rings and determine the best metal.
Purchasing a diamond engagement ring from a reputable jeweler also means you can take advantage of a diamond grading report and other benefits like warranties and in-house repair work. At Koser Jewelers, we buy diamonds based on their beauty, so you'll find bright, beautiful cuts when you visit our store.

You can also take your ring to a jeweler. A professional will inspect it using tools like a loupe and a thermal conductivity probe or meter.
