6 Popular Engagement Ring Settings With a Platinum Crown

The Platinum Crown on your engagement ring is the metal setting that surrounds and holds your center diamond. Some engagement rings are made as a single piece and others are assembled together, and the rings I chose to highlight in this article are made by assembling the Platinum Crown onto the base of the ring.

Choosing a design with a Platinum Crown is important to ensure that not only the color of your center stone stays true to its natural hue because platinum is naturally white and doesn’t cast color into the diamond or gemstone it surrounds, but also because the metal’s durability will hold the diamond and gemstone securely.

Below are 6 popular engagement ring settings all with a Platinum Crown.


1. Bezel 


A bezel-set stone is completely surrounded by metal and is, therefore, very secure. It is a great pick for women with active lifestyles who want to keep their engagement rings on during their day today. Platinum engagement ring by Precision set.
