belcher setting

This is a ring setting I didn't know much about until recently. The setting, called a Belcher, is defined by a stone held by prongs cut out of the shank of the ring. They give a claw-like appearance that looks almost gothic to me. The dainty Victorian belcher rings are especially appealing. (photo courtesy of Morning Glory Antiques)
