|Ceylon Sapphire with Prong Setting
Prong setting at Elizabeth Jewellers is mostly used to highlight nothing but the sapphire thereby the wearer!
Metal prongs lift the sapphire bending over its crown.
Wires or prongs made of precious metal are attached to the base from one end, and a bearing corresponding to the angles of the sapphire is cut into each prong at the same height. Sapphire is then set within the bearings and the prongs are gently bent over the sapphire crown. A “cup burr” is used to give a round tip to the end of the bent prong.

Bezel setting is when a rim of precious metal is made to secure a sapphire or gemstone within it.
|Ceylon Sapphires in Common Prong Setting
In a common prong setting a prong is shared by two or more sapphires placed as close as possible to each other. Common prong setting is ideally used for eternity rings or rings with a line of brilliant sapphires.
