14 K White Gold Solitaire Engagement Ring, Gemstone Bridal Ring
This vintage-style six-prong classic solitaire mounting in 14 Karat White Gold holds a sparkling faceted gemstone measuring 6 mm in diameter and approximately 1 carat in weight. The bright finish on our gold products is not due to plating but instead to a specialized polishing process. If you need a picture for matching purposes, please contact us!
The ring shown in this picture features a lovely faceted Citrine, but it can be created with your choice of stone.
When I 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.
