Classic Solitaire Engagement Ring Settings #1:
Knife Edge Pinched Shoulder Classic Solitaire
This 6 prong classic solitaire has a few notable characteristics. First, it has a knife edge, or the middle of the band has a raised edge rather than a smooth rounded surface. The knife edge helps draw the eye to the center stone. Second, it has pinched shoulders, also called goose neck shoulders, where the shank widens slightly on either side of the stone before pinching in to create almost an arrow effect.
