Are you taking the traditional approach when choosing an engagement ring? Then go for a case or bezel setting, a traditional and very labour-intensive technique for setting the diamond in a solitaire ring. A bezel, or case, is in fact the flat, thick, and wide part where the precious stone is set. But what exactly is a bezel setting?

The flat, thick and wide part where a diamond or other precious stone is set into your ring is what we call the bezel. This is always adapted to the shape of the stone before being soldered onto the ring. The edges of the bezel are crimped over the sides of the gem to protect it against external factors.
There are, of course, some small drawbacks associated with this type of setting, too. For example, the diamond will not be able to catch the light along the side, and the ring will sometimes weigh a bit more than with a different setting.
Simple, delicate, contemporary and suitable for day to day use, is the best way to describe the bezel setting. It will therefore come as no surprise that the bezel setting has become increasingly popular in recent years.
What other settings are there?
A bezel setting is therefore perfect for a ring you wear every day. Because the frame, being precious metal, is less likely to damage your diamond. Would you prefer a different type of setting? See below for the other options.
