The best setting for a 3-carat diamond ring is one that securely spotlights the center diamond and protects any vulnerable points. All VRAI ring settings are expertly crafted to provide lasting protection to any diamond, no matter the carat weight.

When choosing a setting for your 3-carat diamond ring, consider your lifestyle and diamond shape. If security is your top concern, The Signature Bezel or The Signature 6-Prong are considered the most secure settings.
