Bezel definitely sprang to my mind, too.

Do a google search for “low profile engagement ring”.  You can get almost any style in a low profile.  I did a quick search and found rings that are antique style, full bezel, half bezel, prong set and tension mounts that are all low-profile.

I third bezel set. I’ve seen princess cut stones in a bezel setting and it looked so cool! 

I really like the look of cushion cuts in bezel settings too, and then you won’t have sharp corners to contend with.

I was in love with Bezel for the same reasons as you want….then I saw a halo and changed my mind.  I picked out a very low profile one with milgrain on the sides of the band that are still sparkly but can’t hold as much dirt…hahaah.

I love bezel settings! The right bezel really also can make your stone pop and appear larger.

Flush settings are great too – my rings are like that and super low maintenance. My new rings are having them too as I love them so much!

Whiteflash (one of their settings pictured above) or Brian Gavin (has similar bezels) should be able to add flush set melee to one of their bezel settings for a reasonable price and both are great companies to deal with.

Bezel settings are fantastic (I’m biased, I have a bezel-set Ring Bearer solitaire)! They’re really low-maintenance and very very secure. I would totally encourage you to go this route as opposed to a tension-set route since tension settings are much harder to size and leave the stone more vulnerable to damage, although I love the look of them as well. Make sure to get a setting where the bottom is a bit open to let light in to the stone so it sparkle.

Bezel sounds like a good fit for you for your e-ring – and you can get a bezel-set wedding band, too!
