Life in a Bezel



Ten classic and alternative bezel engagement ring styles

Though a bezel setting isn’t for every bride, it just goes to illustrate how difficult choosing the right engagement ring can be. To the betrothed who hasn’t narrowed down her choices quite yet—or even trickier, the one doing the proposing and shopping on his or her own, sans guidance—the setting is yet another option to ponder. I find its typically low-set profile alluring, especially as someone who knocks her higher, four-prong setting on anything it comes into contact with, multiple times daily (not that I’d trade it for anything). And the range of styles is just as endless as a prong-set center can be: modern, classic, vintage, alternative, colored stones, halos, three-stone—and on and on. You can’t really envy anyone shopping for an engagement ring these days, can you? But you can be of service, ready to share a rainbow’s worth of looks for those just beginning their search or set on a bezel. I think any one of these 10 below would make a fine choice for a bezel-ed bride and a glorious addition to your showcase. I also tend to think that the bezel setting can flex between bridal and fashion, so perhaps you’ll find just the right self-purchaser or holiday shopper to take one home, too.
