Here are some useful things to consider when purchasing a ring: Design: When choosing a design, be aware of:
The claw thickness. Too thick and you overshadow the diamond, too thin and you risk losing the diamond.
Ring depth: This is the measurement from the inside of the ring to the outside surface. This determines how well the ring will hold its shape over time.
Ring width: This is a measurement of the width of the ring. A person with a smaller finger size (e.g. size h-n) may want to choose a narrower ring (e.g. 1.7-2mm). Someone with a slightly bigger fingers size (e.g. n-q) may want to choose a wider ring (e.g. 2-2.4mm)
The number of claws: traditionally there are 4- 6 claws depending on the diamond size. Four claws are typically used for up to a 1-carat diamond and for over a carat diamonds six claws provide a more secure setting.
Claw shape: Three mains claw shapes, round, triangle and square. The claw shape has a visual effect on the overall shape of the diamonds. For example, a triangle claw on a round diamond will have a square effect and a square claw on a round stone will make it look square.
