Diamond Bracelet – III

Diamond Bracelet – III

What diamond setting should you choose?

There are varying ways in which a jeweller can attach, or set, diamonds to a bracelet. Each type of setting has its own unique look and benefits:

Claw setting:
Four tiny metal claws or prongs hold each diamond in place, allowing for lots of light to enter the diamonds and creating maximum sparkle.

Rubover setting:
The metal “wraps” around each stone, protecting the diamonds from all sides. This is a practical choice for active people who use their hands a lot. However, this setting can limit sparkle it stops light from entering the stones from all sides.

Channel setting:
Metal strips hold a whole row of diamonds in place. The metal protects the diamonds, but it can limit sparkle because light doesn’t enter the stones from all sides.

Pavé setting:
Tiny metal beads hold dainty diamonds in place. This creates overall surface sparkle.

Illusion setting:
The metal around each tiny diamond is cleverly patterned with ridges so that it creates the illusion of a much larger diamond. This brings the bracelet’s price down considerably yet still gives you a luxurious look.

Halo setting:
In each bracelet link, small diamonds are set around each central diamond like a “halo”. This increases sparkle and creates a very luxurious look.

Cluster setting:
Lots of small diamonds form creative designs, simply for the purpose of creating a stunning piece of jewellery.
