What other types of cathedral settings are there?

Hi! I'm so happy that you have this website in existence because I'm pretty confused as to what kind of ring I want. I know I want either a Radiant or Cushion shape diamond and I like the cathedral settings a lot because I want my diamond to be really "raised up" from my finger! My best friend got a tulip cathedral setting which I love, but I don't want the same as her. Is there another cathedral setting that would really make my diamond skyrocket like the tulip head one? And preferably, no diamonds on the band. I really want the solitaire to stand out!


Thank you!
Jennifer

Thank you! I like the tapered! Now I just have to figure out a way to tell my boyfriend of 4 years what I like without putting on the pressure...

types of cathedral setting

Hi Jennifer,
If you really love your friend's setting......imitation is the best form of flattery.......she would probably be honored if you also got a cathedral, tulip-set ring. However, I understand you wanting your own unique setting....something to consider would be a tapered cathedral setting with high arches, to really make the diamond stand out. The tapered cathedral setting has rounded tips that extends smoothly on both sides of the diamond. To the left and right of the diamond, the band of the cathedral ring setting splits into two and then meets at the bottom to join together. On the top, the tapered sides rise upwards towards the diamond which creates the illusion of the diamond being set deeper and gives the cathedral setting ring its unique look. While still retaining a simplistic chic, the tapered cathedral setting is more architectural in its design making it a more unique setting choice. What do you think? Do a google search for diamond images with a tapered cathedral setting and let me know your thoughts.
