Most jewelers prefer to use platinum mountings because they offer a good balance between appearance, strength, and cost.
Because all eyes are drawn to the central part of the design when showing off an engagement ring, a poorly chosen, unbalanced, or inappropriate mounting will be immediately noticeable.
Properly designed, however, the mounting will highlight the gem or gems as stunning sparkles on the bride-to-be's finger, and may even be able to enhance the stone's carat size, color, or clarity through cleverly designed visual tricks.
