Bezel set of sapphire rings
Rare cashmere sapphire ring from our collection. SOLD
The unusual bezel shape is very appealing for discerning tastes. The edges of a stone set in the bezel fall down into a metal collar, resulting in a sleek and elegant look. Traditionally, precious stones in wedding and engagement rings have claw settings. So bezel settings are not the first choice for those looking for a piece of tradition.
However, the two are similar in some ways. Both bezel and prong settings hold the stones in place, and each of these settings is used to bring fantastic ring designs to life.
While the main purpose of the settings remains the same, there are a few differences that are worth noting.
The tine adjustments grip the edge or table of the stone to hold it in place. In contrast, a bezel nestles against the gemstone in a metal collar that surrounds the stone. A bezel holds a gemstone more securely than other settings.
The aperture settings have other advantages. This setting works with almost any stone shape, for example. This setting also hides imperfections along the edge of the stone, such as inclusions or chips.
In addition, the fashionable look of the bezel setting appeals to modern brides. Celebrity Mary-Kate Olsen hit the headlines with her bezel engagement ring. While film director Charlie McDowell recognized the charm of this unique setting and proposed a ring with a bezel to actress Lily Collins.
History of the bezel sapphire rings
The bezel setting may seem modern, but it’s deeply rooted in history.
The bezel setting sapphire ring pays homage to the historic stone setting, the style of which goes back thousands of years. In fact, the bezel is said to be the oldest type of stone setting. With such a long history, it’s no wonder this style can usually be found in antique and vintage jewelry.
But not everyone can afford an original antique. Hence, new design versions make the style more flexible and accessible. Handcrafted rings, inspired by original pieces, are widespread. Below is a list of original and vintage-inspired rings.
