Clean, contemporary, and surprisingly low maintenance, bezel set engagement rings, which feature a slim band of metal encircling the stone, are all the buzz in the bridal fashion world right now. "The bezel setting is seeing a rise in popularity because people want something a little out-of-the-box, but still appreciate the beauty and timelessness of the classics," says Boston-based private jeweler Hannah Florman. "Bezel settings can be incorporated into the most traditional of engagement rings, adding a modern edge, while upholding the sophistication of a traditional option." It truly is the best of both worlds, with such a clean, cool look that's both fashionable and functional.

"Excellent for active lifestyles, bezels protect and secure all or most of a diamond's edges," notes Kristy Cullinane, co-founder of Plum Diamonds. This is what makes them especially suited for athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, or anyone with a hands-on job. Whether you're hard on your jewelry or are simply looking for something sleek, unique, and sophisticated, these beautiful bezel-set engagement rings are sure to inspire.

Bezel Set Engagement Ring FAQs

Confused about what a bezel setting even is or why it might cost you a little more than a traditional prong setting? We've got answers.

What is a bezel setting?

"A bezel set engagement ring is a popular center stone setting that fully surrounds a gemstone with a seamless metal band edge all around it," says Natalia Giacomelli, Designer and Founder of Giacomelli. Kwiat adds that the bezel can range from very thin and delicate to a wider or even thicker style. "Bezels can have a high polished finish or have a milgrain edge to give it a vintage feel."

Are bezel-set engagement rings expensive?

Generally, yes. "Bezel settings do tend to be more expensive than a traditional solitaire setting, but for good reason," notes Florman. "The cost is because of the additional metal used to create the bezel, as well as the additional labor involved in creating the ring and setting the diamond." Remember, a bezel setting is more secure than a prong too so you're also paying for peace of mind.

What's the difference between a bezel setting and a flush setting?

A flush setting, also known as a gypsy setting, is "when the stone is set flush with the surface of the ring, while with bezel settings the metal surrounds the gemstone and becomes a protective border around the stone," explains Jenny Klatt, co-founder of Jemma Wynne. "Gypsy settings give a more integrated appearance, while bezel settings usually have a visible border around the stone."
