This Sterling Silver ring features a sparkling 6 mm (approximately 1 carat) heart-shaped stone. The six-prong mounting securely holds and protects this unusual stone. This beautiful Sterling Silver solitaire mounting is 6.5 mm wide and gracefully tapers to a 1.5 mm band. The band has been carefully curved and smoothed to be comfortable during wear. The ring shown in this picture features a lovely faceted Lab Ruby, but it can be created with your choice of heart-shaped stone.
When I first began working at the jewelry store that was my first job, I was puzzled to learn that the typical four-prong solitaire mounting that I had grown up seeing was actually considered one of the least secure ring mountings. The jeweler would often shake his head over the number of these broken mountings that found their way across his bench. The reasoning was simple. With a four-prong mounting, if one of the prongs becomes damaged there is a fairly good chance that the stone may be lost. However, with a six-prong mounting, losing or damaging a prong will not lead to loss and sorrow - there are five other prongs that hold the stone safe.
