This 14-karat white gold ring mounting features a 4-prong basket mounting that holds one 8 x 6mm (approx.) oval cabochon or faceted stone. The split cathedral shank is slightly tapered and provides two contact points on the basket mounting for stability. Basket settings feature open sides designed to allow more light to reach and move through the stone, enhancing its brightness and brilliance. Cut a seat in the prongs to accommodate your stone, then burnish the prongs over the stone to secure it in place.
