Prong Versus Bezel Set Jewelry: What's The Difference?

Have you ever wondered about the difference between a bezel set and a prong set gem? Let's dive into the details and explore the unique characteristics of each.


What is a Prong Setting?

In a prong setting, the gem is firmly secured by three or four metal pins evenly spaced around it, forming a claw-like grip.


What is a Bezel Setting?

On the other hand, a bezel set gem is held in place by a single metal ring crimped around the entire stone.


Pros and Cons

Both settings have their advantages and disadvantages. Prong settings showcase more of the gem or stone but may be less secure & get snagged, while bezel settings provide greater protection to the gem not falling out, but show less of the gem or stone. Choosing between prong and bezel set jewelry boils down to personal taste and lifestyle considerations. Whether you prefer the visibility of a prong set gem or the added security of a bezel setting, both options have their unique appeal.
