Are there diamonds in the metal around the stone?

@ZebraPrintMe:  It looks like a bezel setting but the four prongs are throwing me off a little. In any case, pretty ring!!

I’m pretty sure it’s called a bypass setting but I could be wrong; not sure what you mean about enhancing the stone? Is there a little halo under the stone?

@ZebraPrintMe:  Oh, I see it now! I’ve never heard of that before, but it’s very pretty!

I believe it is just called a twist swirl. 

Also, the gold around the stone is called an illusion setting. It is primarily to make the stone look bigger.

I love illusion settings. I see them a ton on vintage rings!

@MissFemmeFatale: just beat me to it. It’s called an illusion setting. It was popular in the 30s-40s, I believe. I received an heirloom ring that’s an illusion set solitaire and I love it. Yours is a beauty, congrats!

it looks like a swirl setting with what’s called ‘gold bead accents’ or ‘diamond cut accents’ in the metal surrounding the centre diamond.

🙂 It’s pretty!
