1. It doesn’t take anything away from the diamond
Before Charles Tiffany’s introduction to the six-prong setting in 1886, diamonds then were encased in bezel rings, which only showed off the top of the gem and little else. The Tiffany Setting, which comprises of six prongs holding the diamond in place, elevates it slightly but securely, and doesn’t obstruct it from the light, allowing the diamond to show off its brilliance.

2. It goes with almost anything
Thanks to the simple yet sophisticated design, the ring can be paired with almost any type of wedding band, and fits most bridal styles.

3. It makes your rock look bigger
One way to have your engagement ring look more impressive: choose slender prongs instead of chunky ones, like the six-prong setting has done. (See other ways to have your engagement ring looking bigger than it actually is here.)
