In this style, sapphire is placed with metal claws or prongs. It is the most popular style & used with a variety of shapes. The premier part of this setting is that it highlights the exquisiteness of the stone from all angles when light hits it. This is the reason it should be worn in the daytime or evening.

2. Bezel Setting

In this style, a metal frame surrounds the stone giving it the ultimate form of protection and a more conventional look. Bezel settings come in various types but three are post popular: full bezel, partial bezel and designer bezel setting. Apart from rendering strength to the center stone, the bezel setting also hides flaws in the stone.

3. Halo setting

In this setting the stone is fixed closely surrounded by diamonds holding it all together. This minimizes the look of the metal & drawing attention to sparkle. Jewelers need high precision for setting stones using this technique; lasers are needed to produce a perfect result.

You might have seen earrings, rings and pendants wherein the centre stone is surrounded by one or more rows of diamonds augmenting the beauty of the center stone; that is the unmistakable halo setting.
