I’m no professional but that looks like a 3 stone cathedral setting! Looks like there’s some miligrain detailing around the inside of the setting as well.

rolypoly :  Try googling images for “trellis cathedral” or “3 stone trellis” settings… I think that may be what you are looking for. Very pretty!

That ring is beautiful! Not an expert here either, but I would say it’s a combination of a trellis and basket setting.

rolypoly :  It’s a 3 stone trellis with a cathedral setting and some variations made by the designer (eg. smaller side stones and center stone set higher than in most 3 stone rings, the undergallery design).

The one you posted in your follow-up is a variation on the 3-stone trellis with 6 prongs around the center diamond. The second image you posted is also not the most common setting that comes up when I google “3 stone trellis” because most trellis center stones have 4 prongs and not 6.

I don’t know what it is called, but my ring is a similar style. Looking at the photos of shiny new rings has made me realise I really need to take mine in to be cleaned (embarrassing!) but here is a photo anyway in case it is helpful reference.

My ring looks like that too. I don’t know the name for the prongs radiating from the same spot but I overheard the jeweler refer to this style as “raised basket”… I’m pretty sure it’s not a variation of trellis tho.

This one is pretty simple but I used it to explain to my jeweler where I wanted my peek-a-boo diamonds placed. Sorry I no longer have the unmarked version on my phone.
