Welcome to the engagement ring files. During this series we’re investigating what you need to know about the various engagement ring setting options. Today we’re highlighting trellis set rings.
A trellis is a style of four prong setting for engagement rings. In this type of engagement ring, four interweaving prongs hold the stone in place.
Trellis settings are popular both for their secure setting and for their attractive styling.
What does a trellis set ring look like?
On a traditional trellis ring, the four prongs generally cross over each other to hold the stone in place. Not only does this give a very secure setting, it also creates an attractive intricate design.
Some trellis rings feature very simple unadorned prongs, while others feature additional diamonds or engravings. This can make the difference between a contemporary style trellis ring and a vintage style one.
The main joy of a trellis ring is that it looks just as gorgeous from the sides as it does from the top. The interweaving prongs, whether or not they feature extra adornment, add visual interest from every angle.
Is a trellis set engagement ring right for you?
A trellis style engagement ring probably isn’t right for anyone who prefers a more streamlined jewellery look!
However, if you’re looking for an intricately designed, elegant ring, then a trellis engagement ring may be ideal.
Trellis settings can also accommodate multiple stones, so this is a great option for those who don’t want to limit themselves to just one gem.
