SO and I went ring shopping today with the idea that we would choose a low profile bezel setting solitaire ring. I work in health care so it’s important that I can wear gloves with my ring, and I tend to be rough on my rings. While we were shopping we decided to look at other settings. I saw a “Lucida” setting which was pretty low profile but not as low as the bezel setting.
I really like both but I can’t decide which one to choose. Help!!! Can I see pictures of both?!? Does anyone have either of these settings and can tell me about them? I’m curious about the “Lucida” setting now.

Would you want to just wear a band at work and wear the e-ring outside of work so you can really open up your options/help you make a choice?

@claireos: I want to be able to wear both at work. I don’t want to have to take one off to go to work.

Mine is a bezel set halo but it is very low set which I love. I just didn’t want something that would get stuck on stuff all the time.

I just got engaged on October 17th and got the Tiffany’s Bezet and I absolutely love it. I told my Fiance that I wanted something low set, because I also work in healthcare and want to be able to wear my ring to work. I love the way it feels (solid, heavy) and that the diamond is really the focus. Mine is .53 and it works really well in the bezel setting I think.
We also looked at Lucida and I think its beautiful, but ultimately I felt the prongs took away from the diamond when its under a carat, but thats just my opinion.
Go with what feels right! People either LOVE bezel set rings or pretty much hate them.

Here are two rings that are similar to the two I’m looking at:

I think the lucida setting is more timeless and won’t look dated in a few years..

@mandas75: have you considered the bezel set Lucida or Etoile?
