What is a Bezel Set Engagement Ring? 

A bezel setting is characterised by a metal lip or collar that wraps entirely around the stone, securely holding it in place. It’s a departure from the traditional prong setting, which uses small metal prongs to grasp the diamond. Bezel set engagement rings offer a sleek, modern look and provide numerous practical benefits, making them an attractive option for engagement rings.

Which Diamond Shapes Look Best in a Bezel Set Engagement Ring?

The round brilliant cut offers timeless elegance, while the princess cut adds a touch of contemporary flair. The emerald and Asscher cuts provide a vintage and sophisticated look. Meanwhile, oval and pear shapes introduce balance and romance to the design. Ultimately, the choice of diamond shape should reflect your unique style and preferences, resulting in a bezel-set ring that symbolises your love beautifully.

Full Bezel vs. Half Bezel

Bezel settings come in two primary variations: full bezel and half bezel (or partial bezel). The key difference between them lies in how much of the stone’s girdle, or edge, is enclosed by the metal.

  • Full Bezel: In a full bezel setting, the metal encircles the entire circumference of the diamond. This style provides the highest level of protection for the gem, ensuring it is less susceptible to accidental rubbing, blows, and scratches. If you have a profession or lifestyle that demands the utmost security for your ring, a full bezel setting is an ideal choice.

  • Half Bezel: A half bezel, as the name suggests, partially encircles the stone, leaving a portion of its edge exposed. The advantage of this style is that it allows more light to interact with the gem, resulting in enhanced brilliance and fire. Furthermore, half bezels eliminate the risk of getting the ring caught on clothing or other materials, making them a practical choice for those who lead active lives.


Key Features of Bezel Set Engagement Rings

Bezel set engagement rings offer several notable features that make them a popular choice for a wide range of wearers:

  1. Enhanced Security: The most prominent feature of bezel settings is their ability to secure the diamond more effectively than prong settings. This makes them an excellent choice for individuals with active lifestyles, professions that expose the ring to frequent wear and tear, or anyone who desires the peace of mind that their precious gem is well-protected.

  2. Modern Aesthetics: Bezel set rings have a contemporary and stylish appearance that complements various diamond shapes and sizes. The metal collar offers a sleek and elegant look that appeals to those seeking a modern twist on a classic tradition.

  3. Protection and Durability: The metal rim surrounding the diamond acts as a protective shield, guarding against damage and reducing the risk of chipping or breaking the stone. This ensures that your engagement ring remains in pristine condition for years to come.

  4. Comfort and Convenience: The bezel setting is smooth and does not include any protruding prongs or claws that can catch on clothing or other materials. This design element makes bezel set rings comfortable to wear daily without the worry of snagging.

  5. Low Maintenance: Bezel set rings are easy to clean and maintain. With no prongs to check or tighten periodically, they require less attention, making them a practical choice for individuals with busy lifestyles.
