Claw setting, or ‘prong setting’ as it is more commonly known, is the easiest method of setting a gemstone and is probably the most popular setting. The claw setting allows the optimum amount of light to pass through the stone, maximising its brilliance.
There are usually four or six “claws” of metal that reach around the gem’s girdle to hold it in place. Although the pieces of metal on show can be carved or be made into creative shapes, they are usually rounded to prevent catching.
