Bezel set rings are pretty flat. My sister liked those too; says if it sticks out it’ll drive her crazy haha. Mine isn’t set high, but as far as i know, anything other than a bezel is high enough to catch on things.

@lyla-bee:  Do you mean bezel set? Like this (my rings):

Or do you mean gypsy/burnish set, like this (not my ring, stock photo):

Both settings are super low and both are beautiful!

I agree that bezels are great at being very low set and not catching on anything. I considered them myself but fell in love with my setting.

However, mine is a 4-prong, but pretty low set and it doesn’t catch on anything. I have 0.33 carats on a size 5 finger. I wear gloves for work (lab) and didn’t want anything that would stick out too far either. So there are some options with non-bezels too depending on what you like just look for low profile settings.

Here’s my ring with some different views to help give an idea of how much it “sticks out”, which to me is not much at all compared to some settings. I have had no issues with it and I am very clumsy and prone to getting caught on things.

Mine was a bezel/halo setting and I loved the flatness of it!  It’s currently being redesigned due to the jeweler damaging it beyond repair 🙁  but it will still be as flat as possible 🙂

Mine is fairly low profile.

My ring is flat. It’s considered a semi-bezel and the blue sapphires are embedded in the band (gypsy set).

There are small holes drilled inside the shank underneath the sapphires to allow for light to get thru and for me to be able to get a tiny jewelry cleaning brush in to. I suppose they would be brighter and more lively if set different but they are very bright blue and sparkly even buried in the shank.

@lyla-bee:  The store over polished it and flattened one edge of the circle halo and then after multiple arguments agreed to remake the ring but rushed it and my once perfect circle was given back to me as an oblongish oval with uneven spacing between the halo diamonds and my center stone was not set straight either at all 🙁 they still have it because we’re trying instead to get them to just let us out of the ring because the whole experience just became negative.  they’re currently arguing we can’t return custom and we’re arguing the ring we ordered doesn’t exist anymore, sigh!  But I’m working with David Klass on remaking it and that process has been so enjoyable I’m getting very excited all over again 🙂
