All you need to know about the bezel set in jewelry.

A traditional crimp by excellence, the bezel set is getting a new breath under the influence of designers, who see in its pure design an ideal partner to more contemporary pieces.

In the family of gem-setting techniques, I would like to mention the bezel set. How do you recognize it? By its setting which wraps the gemstone in a sheet or a metal band, giving the illusion that the ring is nestled in a precious cocoon.

In addition to being one of the most effective ways to protect a stone over time, this type of gem-setting works perfectly when combined with round or oval gems. Another advantage is that the closed crimping tends to give the illusion that the ring is larger, which doesn’t spoil our fun! The proof is in the pictures.
