Hello! I have a .53 carat heirloom diamond I had my heart set on using for an engagement ring, but it has a tiny chip and a very sharp girdle. 2 of 3 jewelers strongly recommended a bezel to protect it.
My question is, does anyone have a half carat bezel-set diamond? Do you have a picture? Does the bezel overwhelm a stone this size? I have only just started warming up to bezels and still don’t like halos, so those are out, unless you can show me a pretty dainty one. 🙂
I really hope someone can shed some light. It’s really hard to find bezels in a jewelry store, especially on a small stone.

My mom reset it, but she has a .5 ct OEC that was in a dainty bezel setting, and it was lovely, not overwhelmed at all.

my engagement ring is a .49 bezel set diamond and I love it 🙂

I think as long as the bezel was thin, it would look beautiful with a stone that size.

I’ve seen Tiffany half carat bezels that look awesome. I have a 3/4 carat bezel but ill show you anyway in case it helps!

Thanks so much, ladies! You’re right, I think they look just fine with the bezel. Whew! I was pretty much on the fence, but now I really feel that the bezel is the way to go.
