Engagement Ring Style Guide



Browse Lauren B’s collection of engagement rings all available for custom order with any size, shape, type or quality center-stone of your liking

Hover over any of the diamond setting techniques mentioned here to learn more about them:

    • PAVE & MICRO-PAVE: Is a setting style that refers to diamonds set closely together, held in by tiny beads or prongs. This is a low profile technique that lays close to the hand and minimizes the appearance of any metal. “Micropave” shanks measure around 1.70-1.80 mm thick; these diamonds are set under a microscope so hence the term “micro”.
    • MULTI-ROW PAVE: This is the same setting technique as pave, but instead of a single line set, it may have double,triple or even six rows of micro pave diamonds on a band. A three- row micro pave band, which is the most common, measures starting at 2.30 mm wideand can go as thick as 5.00 mm.
    • SHARED PRONG BASKET: Prongs along with a metal bar hold the diamond into place and while there is more metal on the profile, it does allow for thinner prongs on top and a more structured appearance. Generally, we use the basket design for a larger diamond eternity band, but can also be made for smaller diamonds sizes, such as 2.50 mm wide.
    • U-SHAPE: This type of prong setting is noted for the entire profile of the diamond being visible. This style of wedding band would pair best with a classic design, such as a solitaire, but we can also create more delicate versions for added versatility. Note the prongs holding each stone must be made larger since that is the only metal holding the stones in place
    • BEZEL: This type of setting encases the diamond with a thin rim of metal. Primarily known for its clean appearance and sturdiness, this setting style usually incorporates milgrain etching as well to give it a vintage feel. Our round bezel bands start at 1.75 mm wide and goes up to 3.50 mm+.
    • BRIGHT-CUT: Bright-cut is actually a type of pave setting whereby the diamonds are set with tiny walls surrounded the metal to give the surface a highly reflective, sparkling appearance.
    • CHANNEL: A channel setting refers to a type of stone setting where the stones are fitted into channel walls and held into place on each side by a continuous strip of metal. This is a classic look that does add more metal and bulk to the look of the band.

Here are some of our popular non-halo engagement rings featuring 1.7mm micropave bands/shanks, across various center-stone shapes.
