A semi-mount ring is an engagement ring purchased without a center diamond set on it. Jewelers usually sell diamonds separately for pairing with a semi-mount ring. By purchasing a separate diamond and ring, the buyer has the flexibility to create a combination they wish, either to suit the style they want or to get the best possible combination of ring and diamond within their budget.

A bridal semi-mount is another name for a semi-mount engagement ring. You will find many different backgrounds around the mount where you will be placing the center diamond. The most popular types of semi-mount rings are solitaire semi-mounts. These have intricate designs such as filigrees and engravings around the space left for the stone you will pick. Another popular type of bridal semi-mount is the accented semi-mount, where smaller accent stones are set on the band.
