Rather than opting for a simple solitaire setting, brides are enamored with more unique settings like pave, swirl, and especially halo or double halo. There has also been a surge in a horizontal setting for non-round cuts and asymmetrical settings in the past few years and many grooms are even going for custom settings for their one-of-a-kind brides.
