Today we will be reviewing a little bit about the different types of ring settings. Some of you may be asking, what is a ring setting?
Well, you've stumbled across the right blog post! A ring setting is basically what holds your rings main stone in place. There are many different types of ways that jewelers set their gemstones into place - called "settings", but today we will be touching upon some of the most common ones!
Some of these settings include...
Prong/Claw Setting: This is the most commonly used setting. The main stone is set with 4 or 6 prongs. Prong setting is commonly referred to as claw setting, as the prongs look like "claws" that hold the stone.
Channel Setting: This setting will set stones right next to each other with no metal in between. The metal on the outer sides and worked over edges of the stones, providing protection and smooth exterior surface.
Bezel Setting: This setting has a rim that holds and surrounds the stone. Bezel settings can be molded in any shape to accommodate the stone, but typically has straight edges, and scalloped edges.
Gypsy/Flush Setting: This setting has a band that gets thicker towards the top and is shaped like a dome. The stone is inserted within this dome and flush with the band. Creating a clean and smooth look.
Cluster Setting: This setting is a cluster or group of smaller stones all surrounding a larger stone in the middle.
Pave Setting: This setting secures the stones by placing them into drilled holes.

If you are wondering how to clean and maintain your jewelry, don't worry you are not the only one! This is a very common question people sometimes feel embarrassed to ask. There is no shame in wanting to make sure you are taking the best care of your jewelry! Here at Ring Deluxe we take pride in providing our customers the most reliable and up to date information. Now let's get started on how to best take care of jewelry!
Option 1 (no cost): Not everyone is willing to spend money on jewelry cleaners and that is 100% alright because there is a method for you! You can clean the band of your rings, and chains of your necklaces with soap and water at home. However, do not clean the stones with soap as this will dull the shine of your jewelry.
Option 2 (Range from $2-$20): There are many jewelry cloths out there that can range from as low as $2 USD to $20 USD. This is all about preference but any microfiber jewelry cloth will do the job! This cloth you can use to clean the bands and chains of your jewelry as well as shine your stones, without scratching or damaging your ring or piece of jewelry.
Option 3 (Range from $5-$40): There are jewelry solutions that you can use depending on the type of jewelry you are looking to clean. Some are specific to sterling silver, some could be for gold. The price varies from brand to brand. You can use this solution with your jewelry cloth to clean and shine your jewelry including the stones!
Option 4 ($50 & Up): Some of you may see that there are jewelry cleaning machines out there. For some of you this can be a good choice depending on the amount of jewelry you own or how much you are willing to invest in maintaining your jewelry. However, you can properly clean and maintain your jewelry without having to make such a huge investment, which are all listed in the previous options. For those who would like to go with a jewelry cleaning machine, make sure to do your research on what type of jewelry and stones the machine is best for as some can damage your jewelry.
Extra Tips: Regardless of the option you choose we recommend to store your jewelry in an air tight sealed container over night. This will help protect it from dust particles and keep it secure. Remember you are taking care of something you spent your hard working money on and you want to make sure it lasts as long as possible!

The jewelry industry has evolved and developed a lot in terms of designs, color, and look of the pieces. The classic round or square forms are now being replaced by the most different shapes that bring uniqueness and individuality both to the jewelry piece and the person wearing it. Although some might prefer the classics, there is particularly one shape that has made a boom on the market and instantly became lovable – the pear shape.
The pear-shaped jewelry, especially the rings, provides an extraordinary look on the hand of the person wearing it. They can come in many different colors, finishes, additional details and sizes. All of them are unique and hold their own story. So, we at Ring Deluxe are challenging you – pick your favorite pear!
Semra is currently the trendiest and number one choice among the women. It brings difference and diversity, and in combination with the pear shape, it provides an extraordinary look. The simulated diamonds fill out the handle of the ring as well as the pear frame, while the center is shiny and eye-captivating.
For those who love vintage, the pear-shaped Ofelia ring is what will make a difference from afar. The pear-shaped diamond is safely held by the ring itself. The coat is silver and it goes very well with any outfit. The halo adds the finishing touch to this beauty.
The Lucile ring presents a combination between a pear-shaped jewel and a classic band. The simulated diamond create a piece of jewelry that shows elegance and style.
Classic, shiny, dominant, and eye-catching, this is the ring that will always be dominant. All in one color, with a silver finish and high shine, the Natalia ring is both classic and trendy. Full of shiny stones all around it, its exquisite elegance is something unbeatable, with a timeless style.
If the classic ring is not interesting for you, why not go with a pear band ring. The luxurious look it provides cannot be compared to anything similar, and the dominance of pear-shaped jewels will instantly become a favorite day-and-night jewelry piece.

When it comes to picking jewelry, the choices are usually defined by two things: personal likings and trends. Each season introduces something new in terms of jewelry. However, many stay true to their likings and style and tend to always buy something similar or close to their established taste.
Considering both of the factors mentioned above, the best sellers at Ring Deluxe come exactly from this. We put together this list to help you make your next choice!
Milan is a three stone heart ring that is extremely modern and eye-catching. The three stones come in unique heart and lovable shape, the middle one quite bigger than the side ones. Safely held in a frame that is connected to the handle, this is the ring the will leave an impression wherever you go.
Quite different than Milan, our Lena ring tells a different story. It is an eternity band ring full of oval stones, which is extra popular among celebrities these days. All of the stones come perfectly aligned one next to the other, with a round silver sterling band that keeps them together. This is a ring that is elegant, chic, and modern.
This is a ring that makes a statement, that shines from afar and that shows the quality of stones for every eye, at every angle. Our Celeste ring is full of gems – both on the centerpiece stone and the handle. The main stone is round while the handle of the ring is filled with smaller stones. She's also available in a Silver finish.
From the popular pear-shaped rings, Natalia is the one that leaves quite the impression. Excellent as an engagement ring or just a luxurious jewelry choice, Natalia will catch all the eyes regardless of where you are. The handle is filled will small gems that almost cover the entire ring, while the top is dominated by the huge pear-shaped gem. This is definitely a must-have.
Caroline is one of our personal favorites. She's available in a Silver, Gold or Rose Gold finish. Extraordinary and beautiful, this is the ring that leaves an inexplicable statement. The handle comes in rose gold coating with small inserted gems. The top gem has a rectangle shape that is elegant and dominant.
