Hey bees. I am planning on getting this for my 5 year anniversary this summer. Here’s my question. What do you call this type of setting? The way it has four prongs, but the extra horizontal part. I think I might have seen it called a basket setting, but not sure. Thanks!

TO @ceebree: appears to be a basket setting (as I understand them) in that the diamond is supported from below as well as having the prongs.
Basket Setting = The basket setting is used on many of the ring designs at Danforth Diamond. It is similar to the prong setting, but in addition to the claws that hold the ring, there is an additional ring of metal that secures the prongs, to reduce any prong movement.
Hope this helps,

Yah that’s a basket setting and it’s also cathedral (where the shoulder come up to meet the basket).
