What is a claw prong? A claw prong is a prong that holds the center stone in securely in an engagement ring that goes to a point. A lot of our clients are asking for claw prongs for their center stones. It really is a beautiful way to set a center stone. If it is done properly, it will give a very beautiful touch to your engagement ring.
- Can claw prongs be done to any shape center stone? If the ring is designed properly and the stone setter is a master stone setter it can be done with any shape diamond.
- Do you recommend claw prongs on every shape diamond? No, I do not recommend it on diamonds that have a point. For example: princess, pear ( on the tip), heart (on the tip) and marquise cuts.
- What are the risks involved in a claw prong for Princess, Pear, Heart and Marquise? The point of the diamond can break in the setting process.
- If a ring is not pictured with claw prongs can it be done? Yes, we can change the prongs to a claw prong. Just let us know!
