How do i learn more about settings? What is a traditional setting? What settings are "in style" right now? Do all settings work with all diamonds? Are there certain settings i should stay away from?

As of right now i''m most likely going to go with a HOF Dream Cut (closest i can find to cushion cut) diamond, 1.5-1.8 ct, with 18k white gold ring. This is a complete surprise to my GF and we have never talked about settings, only that she really likes cushion cut.

Any advice will be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!!!

Well, depending on how picky your gf is... if you are really unsure on her preferences in setting -- you can get a cheap setting and then tell her she can pick out another setting after the proposal :) OR take it to a jeweler who is flexible and let you change the setting later on if your gf decides she doesn''t like it. I went to Oscar Design Jewelery here in Los Angeles and he is absolutely the nicest /patient man to work with. He told me if I ever change my mind in the future, I can just take it back to him and he will exchange it for something I like.

Go on Blue Nile and choose create a ring. Pick cushion and then select one and select add it to ring. Then you can look at settings with cushions set in them.

If you are getting a HOF diamond, why not look at their settings? They have some beautiful ones
