19 Beautiful Bezel Set Diamond Rings


Bezel set rings are beloved for their sleek design and modern curves. This distinctive diamond setting is stunning when featured at the center of an engagement ring, but also looks utterly unique when used in accent stones and wedding bands.

What Is A Bezel Setting?

A bezel setting surrounds the gem’s girdle (its widest point) with a thin band of precious metal to create a perfectly smooth edge and keep the gem secure.

Bezel Setting Vs. Prong Setting

Rather than surrounding the gemstone in precious metal, prong settings hold the diamond in place with either bead, peg, or claw prongs. The prong is notched at the gem’s girdle to secure it in place. Since prong set styles use less precious metal to hold the gemstone in place, more light filters through the diamond. This causes prong set diamonds to appear more brilliant than bezel set diamonds. Solitaire prong settings tend to be less expensive than solitaire bezel settings since less metal is used.

Prong settings leave the diamond more exposed, so if you live an active lifestyle your diamond might be at a higher risk of getting damaged.

Bezel settings leave the diamond completely wrapped in metal, keeping it very secure. Although less light reaches the diamond in a bezel setting, a band of lustrous precious metal may make your gemstone appear larger.

Advantages of Bezel Settings

If you live a highly active lifestyle, or work in an environment where your ring is likely to get bumped often, bezel settings are a great choice! A stone held in a bezel setting is less likely to get loose and fall out, making this setting an excellent choice for active people.

Bezel setting can also be great at hiding a gemstone’s visible defects, such as chips or inclusions. If you are opting for a softer gemstone, such as an opal or emerald, a bezel setting will protect them from scratches and chips better than a prong setting would.

These settings also offer versatility in style. They’re especially great if you love modern engagement rings, but you want a ring with a bit of vintage flair. Choosing a bezel setting with light-reflecting milgrain detailing can add a touch of old world charm. If you want something a bit more glamorous, you could choose a bezel setting with diamond accents. Semi-bezel rings—featuring a bezel that does not surround the entire circumference of the gemstone— are also secure and create gorgeous, flowing styles.
