Bezel Set Ring Explained: What is Bezel Setting?

Play Video about bezel set ring

The bezel.

Bezel engagement rings and bezel wedding bands! 

We’ve been seeing this setting being chosen by our trendy clients and fashion “it” girls like recently engaged actress/musician Zoë Kravitz, but this setting has actually been around since the beginning of jewelry design itself. This history gives the look that ranges from antique-esque to modern vibes, and we’re here for it.

If the bezel look has been on your radar, you know exactly what it is. But we feel like we wouldn’t be the jewelers we are without giving you a definition 💃

A bezel setting refers to when the center stone is framed in gold, platinum, or whatever precious metal you decide to choose for your engagement ring or wedding band. 

Take a look at these two rings.

Super easy to see the difference right? The bezel setting frames the stone similar to a painting or photo, while prong settings give a dainty grip on the stone.

full bezel or half bezel?

One of the characteristics of a bezel setting you can choose from is if you prefer a completely encompassed look with a full bezel, or a half bezel which still offers visibility into the stone from the sides.

Just as if you are framing a picture, you can decide how wide you want that frame to be.

For example, you might prefer your bezel border to be as thin and fine as possible, because you want that accent of metal around the center stone, at the same time not being too overpowering or too chunky.

Bezel setting on wedding bands

Since the bezel directly relates to the stone itself, we can also do bezel settings on wedding bands! Take a look below the bezel set wedding band vs single and shared prong. Same metal, same stones, complete different look!

"If I get a bezel setting is it going to diminish the sparkle of the stone? "

Absolutely not! The stone is still going to sparkle the same ✨ The only thing to keep in mind is – you will have more surface area of the stone being covered by the bezel… but that’s the whole look! 

Follow your instincts.

And we’ll walk you through it. Side by side comparisons, figuring out the aesthetic that you want, we’ll figure out the metal colour, if you want shoulders or no shoulders, diamonds on the band or no diamonds… So many ways to make this ring truly yours. The marker of this engagement ring style is going to be that statement bezel around the center stone.
