Bezel Setting for Diamond Pendants


A Casual Yet Elegant Look

Diamond pendants are a simple way to add sparkle to your jewelry collection and they don’t have to cost a fortune to look fabulous. There are several types of diamond settings used for pendants but the prong setting and the bezel setting are the most popular.

Bezel Setting: A Definition

As you can see in the image on the left, the bezel setting forms a ring or circle around your diamond. It doesn’t have to be a circle though, as shown with a round brilliant cut diamond. The bezel can be made to fit many different diamond shapes.

The bezel features a collar or rim of precious metal, usually gold or platinum. A special tool is used to bend the metal over the diamond to hold it in place. This is easy to see in the side view. The collar is highly polished and usually flush with the diamond giving it a sleek appearance.

One of the main advantages of this setting include a larger appearance and protection. First, the overall look of a bezel set pendant is often larger than the diamond because of the metal frame. Second, the bezel setting is known to be one of the safer options. The rim, when properly crafted, can hold the diamond quite securely, since it completely surrounds the diamond.

A Designer’s View

Stefano Nicoletti is a 3rd generation jewelry designer. As Mazal Diamond’s Creative Director he designs all of the company’s jewelry and oversees production in our factory. Here are some of his thoughts on what is considered the classic diamond solitaire pendant.

“The bezel setting is a perfect choice for solitaire diamond pendants for many reasons. First and foremost, it can make the diamond look larger, ” says Stefano. “The bezel setting will surround the diamond with metal, giving it a casual yet elegant look.”

“It’s very important that the bezel setting is done properly however. The metal should not cover the stone unnecessarily. That would prevent light from entering the diamond table and in turn would lower the brilliance of the stone and make it look smaller than it really is.”

Any wedding ring websites, please?

We would like to get our very special wedding rings soon and do you know any websites where we can get ideas from?
Many thanks in advance.

Have BEAUTIFUL custom made rings, and their prices are not bad.

They especialize on Celtic motifs, but they also have a great variety of designs and they can even do your own.

Good luck! I recommend these guys very much.

Is this item worth the price?


The price seems good but i couldnt find whether or not its a lab created gemstone. If its real diamonds then the price isnt bad. if its lab created then there are alot of better options out there.
Here are some nice necklaces from one really good website:
1.) this one is comparable to the one you have. its sterling setting but the carat weight of diamonds is a lot higher. it is lab created though.
ones natural diamonds. and a plated silver setting
this ones pretty nice. its natural diamonds in a 14kt gold setting.
ones more expensive but its also in a gold setting and has…
