| Cremation Diamond Ash Ring in Solitaire Settings
The most common and classic ring setting is called prong setting. A Solitaire setting is a little metal claw that grips the diamond tightly, and holds it in place. Prongs can be rounded, pointed, flat or most popular v shaped. Four prongs are very popular, some rings have six prongs for a more secure purpose.

Solitaire settings have the minimum of precious metal to add more brilliance to the diamond.

| Cremation Diamond Cremation Ring in Bezel Settings
The bezel setting is the second most popular ring setting due to its modern look and suitability for an active lifestyle. Instead of holding the diamond with prongs, the bezel setting encircles the diamond, or center stone, with a thin metal rim custom-made to hold the stone tightly in place. This is a good option for Algordanza Rough diamonds.

Because of this bezel, the diamond is held more securely in place than it would be in a ring that uses prongs. This makes the bezel setting one of the most durable of the ring styles.

| Cremation Diamond Ash Ring in Tension Settings
Another popular ring style is tension style settings. Tension settings hold the diamond securely in place, and offers a more timeless look.

| Cremation Diamond Ash Ring in Halo Settings
The halo setting refers to the placement of diamonds or other gemstones in a concentric circle or square around a center stone. The halo setting makes the center stone appear larger—a great option to boost the appearance of a small diamond—and it increases the overall sparkle of the ring. They come in various interesting shapes, some of them even look like flowers.

A halo setting, then, can be a way to save money on a smaller-carat diamond while not sacrificing the overall appearance of the ring. In addition, adding a halo of coloured gemstones or setting the halo diamonds with a different color metal can make for a contrast in colours.
| Cremation Diamond Ash Ring in Flush Settings
A flush setting, also known as a gypsy setting, sets the diamond into a drilled hole in the band of the ring so that the ring sits “flush” with the band of the ring.
This type of setting is a popular choice for men’s cremation rings, as the diamond sits securely in the band of the ring and is therefore highly protected from chipping or falling out. Like the bezel setting, this is one of the most protective and durable ring styles.

| Cremation Diamond Ash Ring in Three Stone Setting
The three-stone setting is a versatile setting, the three stones, set closely together, are said to symbolize the couple’s past, present, and future.
These stones can either be all the same size or, as is often the case, the center stone is larger than the two side stones. The most popular diamond shapes for this setting are the round brilliant cut and the princess cut.
