Diamond Ring Bezel Setting

Posted by Daily Jewelry On April - 15 - 2012

Diamond Ring Settings: Have You Considered the Lower-Profile Bezel Setting?
While many women appreciate a high profile prong setting for their diamond ring, still others prefer something less elevated as a means to secure an expensive or cherished heirloom stone (which they don’t want to risk losing), or to keep a stone from becoming too obtrusive when doing daily chores or working with children.

About the Bezel Setting
The bezel setting is the most common of settings next to the prong setting, because of the protective collar that encircles the stone. The collar may be solid or may have cutouts allowing one to view the profile of the diamond, thus giving one a partial view in a more secure type setting. When a partial view is allowed this is called a partial bezel setting. The advantage of a bezel setting is that it is made to fit your particular stone so it’s a custom fit. When the stone is placed into a setting that allows it to be almost flush with the band, it is called a flush setting. This setting is great for those who want to admire their diamond but don’t want to risk it getting snagged or damaged.

The Downside of a Bezel Setting
The disadvantages of a bezel setting include: not allowing as much light to reflect off of the surface of the diamond, thus a less brilliant appearance, and a setting that may make your diamond look smaller since it will be placed within a deeper seat.

Securing your diamond to your ring is of utmost importance in addition to the look and appeal of your ring overall. Carefully consider your setting options and pick the one that not only best complements your stone, but also your lifestyle.

    Hello I thought I’d take this oppurtunity to let you know how Much I love my new puppy and he is great. Anyway pick a ring that you like( that, it doesnt end up inexpensive but is for you and your age group instead of just mocking the modern crowd, the younger crowd more in crowd for the elite and the young. Get what calls out to you from vintage to ,retro,to modern all the way to future rings there invisible but you get a certificate and everything. lol. I love diamonds blueberry Blue are my fav fancy so far it is a band with blueberry diamonds all around the band in a princess channel cut? I want to learn so badly on what it takes to be a Gemologist. I found my prize possession at a thrift used store it was a whole, $ 1.89 with half off can’t beat that.! in 925 sterling silver. Who cares if it isnt Yellow Gold. The same day i got a .50 ct of diamonds on a heart shaped pendant half black half white, with a marked silver.925 chain. for 10.00$ what a steal. Thank you for listening. Catherine Crafton
