Selecting Engagement Rings Can Be Difficult

If you are shopping for engagement rings, you know that the process can be daunting. Diamonds come in various cuts and colors as well as designs, so buying diamond jewelry can take some time. Not only do you have to consider the cut and clarity of a diamond, you also have to think about the setting if you want the ring customized. Making Your Diamond Stand Out In most instances, diamonds can be placed in four or six-prong designs.

You will never lose a diamond that is set inside a six-prong head, because, even if two of the prongs break, you will still have four prongs to keep the stone in place. While you may have more metal around the stone in your engagement ring, you will also have more peace of mind if you choose this type of setting. Do you really want to look down...
