Bezel-Set Engagement Rings: Into the Groove

It’s official: bezel-set engagement rings have come full circle. This beloved blast from the past has been reimagined as a contemporary ring setting.

Bezel-Set Engagement Rings:
The Bezel’s in the Detail

Simple and durable, a bezel setting encircles your diamond in a fine metal frame. Not only is this aesthetically pleasing, but it also holds your stone firmly in place.

“Absolutely gorgeous…
my engagement ring is dainty, delicate, and beautiful.
-Kelsey F.

If you lead an active lifestyle or work with your hands, bezel-set engagement rings are a smart choice. The bezel itself shields your diamond from getting chipped, scratched, or, worse still, coming loose and falling out.

The setting is a versatile one; it can accommodate most diamond cuts including round, princess, and cushion. The bezel conforms to the shape of the diamond, providing a snug fit every time.

If you’d rather keep your options (and diamond) somewhat open, you can go for a ring with a semi-bezel, half-bezel, or open bezel. Obviously, these offer varying degrees of protection, depending on the completeness of the bezel.

Carrie Underwood: from Idol to “I do

Trellis Bezel-Set Halo

Carrie Underwood went from Idol to “I do” after receiving a gorgeous canary diamond engagement ring from her fiancé. The striking yellow center stone is accentuated by a halo of white diamonds, and the shanks are lined with pavé diamonds.

Want to snag her sparkly look? This trellis engagement ring, with its clean lines and bright cut pavé halo, puts a vintage twist on a modern design. Venus, take the wheel!

Julia Stiles: “O” Wow

There are ten things we love about Julia Stiles’ engagement ring, and her bezel setting is one of them. A classic round-cut solitaire on a yellow gold band gives the ring an understated elegance reminiscent of the actress herself. Stiles by name, styles by nature. (Sorry, we had to!)

Save the last dance for James Allen’s lookalike ring, which has a sleek, tailored design and timeless appeal.
