Prong Setting

Various Types of Prong Settings Separate from the Pieces of Jewelry they Will Become

A prong setting, sometimes called a claw setting, holds gemstones in place with three or more small, finger-like extensions of metal that wrap up and over the edge of the stone, securing it in place.

Prong settings are the most common type of setting for gemstones, particularly for solitaire engagement rings.
