Prongs 101: 5 Types to Choose From for Her Engagement Ring
Prongs are the pillars that hold the world's most beautiful Engagement Rings. These metal tips extend from the ring's basket, giving the brilliant center stone a loving embrace. But did you know that these tiny tips make a lot of difference in her Engagement Ring's overall look? 🤔
Prong 101: 5 Types to Choose From
1. BUTTON PRONG
This prong type ends with a round tip. When viewed from the top, it looks like four buttons holding your brilliant Moissanite gemstone in place. It's perfect for softening the sharp features of a ring or cradling side stones together.
2. TAB PRONG
After the round tip comes an angular one: Tab Prongs have a square or rectangular shape when viewed from above. In contrast to the Button Prong, this type balances round features, making it best for Round Cut pieces.
3. CLAW PRONG
A Claw Prong extends from the band, envelops the brilliant center stone, and tapers to a tip. Its shape makes it a crowd favorite since it covers less of the center stone to allow more light to enter. Despite taking up minimal real estate, it still holds your Moissanite gem safely in place. This prong choice boasts a modern style that elevates the overall look of her Engagement Ring.
4. DOUBLE PRONG
Love is truly in the details. As the name suggests, this prong type splits to form two prongs. Although it sounds simple, this unique design requires technique to achieve perfection. After all, nothing worth having comes easy—an accurate representation of your commitment to your fiancée-to-be.
5. V PRONG
Lastly, this prong type is perfect for safeguarding the sharp corners of her Moissanite piece. The V Prong applies to Princess Cut, Radiant Cut, or Pear Cut pieces, as pictured above.
