When choosing rings that are to be worn on an everyday basis, like engagement rings, it is important to make sure that they are durable and can withstand everyday wear and tear issues. It is better to avoid delicate designs or rings that come with a large number of small stones if you are looking for everyday rings, as they can get damaged easily. However, there is a large number of stunning ring settings that can be suitable for daily wear.

The following are some of the best ring settings you can consider if you are planning to wear your ring daily.

Prong Setting

This is one of the simplest ring settings you can get. Here, the diamonds will be secured to the band using small prongs which are made up of metal. But when choosing prong-set rings for everyday wear, it is better to go for six prongs rather than four.

When one prong in a four-prong ring is loose or broken, the stone can fall off the ring. But if the ring has six prongs, the diamond can be held to the band using the other five prongs which can reduce the risk of losing the stones.

Additionally, if your ring comes with fancy-shaped diamonds that have sharp corners, then choose v-prong settings that can provide better protection for them. But be aware that both the six-prong setting and the v-prong setting can reduce the visibility and brilliance of the stone when compared to the four-prong setting. Hence, you will have to compromise the shine of your ring for enhanced protection.

Bezel Setting

This is the best setting you can choose if you want to protect your ring from everyday wear and tear issues. This setting surrounds your gemstone with a ring of metal. As this metal ring covers the girdle of the diamond, it can reduce the force applied to the stone if you accidentally hit your ring somewhere.

But this setting can reduce the visibility and shine of your natural and lab grown diamonds because of the metal ring covering them.

Channel Setting

This setting is commonly used for wedding bands rather than engagement rings. Here, small diamonds will be suspended between two strips of metal that forms a channel. This setting also covers the girdle of your diamonds thereby making them less prone to chipping and other damages.

All these ring settings can be suitable for everyday wear. Hence, you can choose a setting based on your preferences.
