One of the best ways to highlight the beauty of a high quality diamond is with a prong semi-mount. These settings are designed to let the center stone take the spotlight, while the band acts as a delicately beautiful support. Prong settings are extremely popular and can offer a more traditional feel. The prongs are bent over the crown of the diamond in order to secure it, which is why it's sometimes referred to as a "claw setting". Solitaire diamonds are wonderful matches with this setting; the stone is highlighted much more than the metal holding it. With hundreds of prong diamond semi-mounts to choose from, finding a few you love will be an easy task!
Our inventory of prong semi-mounts varies from simple, yet elegant settings to unusual designs. Slender bands ornamented with small round cut diamonds make up many of our prong settings in white, yellow, and rose gold. There are dozens of striking options that build upon this simple design, like one setting in white and rose gold that swirls into a circle around the prongs. The rose gold is another layer on the white gold base, giving it a gorgeous dimension. Another unique mount features two forked ends that stop at the base of the prongs, with .57 carats decorating the band. These ends are rounded, embellishing the center stone.
It is important to note that these semi-mounts have specifications on the size of center diamonds they can hold. Some can hold any size or shape, while others may only be able to secure a certain number of carats or diamond shapes. This precaution stands as a safeguard against prongs breaking and diamonds chipping or falling out. Our priority is keeping your ring and diamond safe and secure!
