In 1872 Ferdinand J. Herpers patented the prong setting for the Tiffany Company, who had introduced it as the "Tiffany Setting" in 1886.
It is an embrace of a setting, the prongs used in a similar way to how we use the fingers of our hands.
At SWR, we're always amazed at how different one prong-set ring looks from another. Recently, we've moved away from a simple pin-mounted setting. We like to use a prong setting laser-welded to a metal ring inlay. as you'll see below. We find they're stronger that way, and quite striking.
