I am not sure what that is called specifically, but it’s what I got! I just explained to the jeweler that I wanted to see the bottom of the stone ….

you’re welcome. There are tons of different types of prong set rings, and how much of the bottom of the diamond you see can vary.  The setting you showed looks like a cathedral setting – those tend to sit up higher.

Mine was like that, where you could see the point at the bottom.  I hated it so I had my prongs lowered.  I wanted the prongs to “hug” the diamond. But I see those pictured above a lot in the jewelry stores.

@Kat_Kit2000:  Thank you! 🙂 I do too!! Sometimes I just stare at the diamond, like an inch away from my face, lol. I like being able to see most, if not all, of the stone.

@MrsWBS:  +1 They called my setting a modified cathedral now that I think about it …

@Kat_Kit2000:  I would be a little afraid of that too, but with such an awesome ring, it might be worth the risk haha

The center stones in your pictures are in 4-prong settings. 4-prong settings show more diamond profile and lets more light in than 6-prong settings. How high up the diamond is set is just personal preference.

The side stones in the second picture are set in a tension setting. They look really cool, by the way.
Below is a link I’ve found on tension settings from pricescope:

Happy shopping! 🙂

i think you are looking for a tension setting.  pretty but not as secure as other settings.
