Changing setting styles
As styles change along with your lifestyle, there can be many reason to not only enjoy the look of a new style of setting, but also to see the functionality in it change. Reasons for making a change can be due to height and shape of the setting along with enhancing the visibility of the stone.
Rub Over Settings
A rub-over setting is where the metal is pushed over the stone to create one smooth setting edge. This also helps to give the illusion of the stone look larger.
Claw settings have been a favorite of jewellery enthusiasts for generations and it is a safe bet that this trend will continue. They are made to show off more of the stone than most other styles of settings as they show the side view rather than just the top. This type of setting looks especially beautiful when with a larger size stone.
