Low-profile rings are in high demand! This versatile style has been around for centuries, giving way to some truly unique designs. Our collection of low-profile vintage engagement rings features a wide assortment of styles and stones—including white, yellow, and chocolate diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and more—from virtually every vintage era.
How Low Can You Go?
While we typically envision a diamond ring in an elevated setting, this style wasn’t popularized until the late 1800s, when Tiffany & Co. introduced its classic prong setting. Vintage jewelry from this time—especially just before the Victorian Era and later in the Art Deco Era—features a number of distinct low-profile alternatives.
The bezel setting in particular is used in many classic and antique styles. With this setting, the stone fits snuggly in the band like a jewel in a crown. Other low-profile rings feature low prong settings or intricate designs with open metalwork! Because of these settings, low-profile rings can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes, including round, pear and marquise cuts!
Reasons To Choose A Low-Profile Ring
For such a low setting, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the reasons you’ll love these rings! Because the stone is set closer to the hand, these rings are super easy to wear! They’re also a perfect style for more delicate designs. Regardless of the shape or cut you choose, these rings all share some common benefits, including:
- A closer, more compact look
- Secure settings for precious stones
- Great for active lifestyles and everyday wear
