a basket setting is probably the most common type for any jewel. It allows light in from the bottom for more sparkle, usually has four prongs, and is usually used for soltiaire settings. It may be found on earrings, pendants, and other jewelry as well as on rings.

Is there a relationship between the cost of a diamond and the cost of the ring setting?

Well no not really. The cost of a diamond is usually independent of the cost of a diamond ring setting.

In that case, a run of the mill ring setting may not do, and you may need to have your ring setting custom made in order to accommodate an unusual diamond.

How do you make a prong ring setting?

I'm not entirely sure I understand the question. Are you asking what a prong setting is or how you can acquire a prong set diamond engagement ring? In regards to the first option: a prong setting consists of a precious metal backing, or cradle, which the diamond is fitted into, and is then held in place by delicate, fine prongs. A prong stetting can feature up to 8 prongs, and the most common, traditional prong setting usually consists of 4 prongs. The prong setting is valued for its versatility and its simple sophistication and is perhaps the most popular engagement ring setting in today's diamond engagement ring market.
