This is the most common setting chosen by almost all couples for their diamond engagement ring. In the setting the diamond is the main focus and hence it is highlighted. The size of the diamond can be emphasized more if a thin band is used. The prong setting increases the “hall of mirrors” effect of the stone. The light reflection is made maximum in this setting. Though a diamond in the prong setting doesn’t have much brilliance, the disparity between the light and the shadow adds beauty to it.
In the halo setting a set of tiny diamond stones are kept around the main stone. This serves the purpose of adding the necessary sparkle to the center stone, even when the center stone remains the point of attraction. If your emerald cut diamond is a small one, this setting would be perfect because the stone would look bigger in this setting. More protection is offered to the center stone in the halo setting than in the prong setting, because of the halo which surrounds the stone.
