Setting refers to how gemstones are set, or mounted, into a metal band. The ring setting is meant to highlight the beauty of an engagement diamond. Style refers to the overall design aesthetic that the ring setting helps create—whether it be solitaire, halo or three stone.
What is the difference between Ring styles Vs. Ring Settings?
Ring settings refer to the specific and more technical elements that define the different types of engagement rings, while ring styles are more general ways to categorize the look and feel of engagement rings. For example, a solitaire ring is a type of ring setting that includes only one center gem and no accent diamonds or gemstones on the band, and solitaire rings settings are considered a classic ring style.
