Key Facts about Grain Shape Settings

Information on Grain Shape Settings

As with invisibly set diamonds or gemstones, grain shape set stones are an ideal way of setting small accent stones into the shoulders of an engagement ring.

Unlike invisibly set stones, grain set stones are not secured all the way around but just at 4 equally spaced points around the stone which produces an apparent square shape.

Perhaps a recognisable feature of our engagement ring designs is our frequent use of small accent stones in the shoulders of engagement rings. We find that grain setting is a great way to add perhaps a subtle splash of colour to an otherwise white diamond solitaire or conversely a great way to add a touch of diamond sparkle to a less flashly coloured central gemstone. Grain setting a stone in this way could really add that extra something to your engagement ring design.

Of course the shape of the grain set stone doesn't just have to be a square - for example marquise can be good for matching a marquise cut diamond as the central stone, heart shaped, diamond shaped or pear shaped. You can be creative with this idea.

One thing to consider when choosing to grain set stones in the shoulders of an engagement ring is whether there is enough depth of metal around the stones to accomodate them. When you discuss your unique design with your designer during your consultation, you will be able to come up with a design together that allows this to happen.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to arrange a design consultation.
