Low-profile Engagement Ring -a Complete Guide

Do you want an engagement ring that won’t get snagged on your clothes, won’t get in the way during sports, and outlive all of your other jewelry? Well, a low-profile engagement ring can fulfill all these demands!

What are Low Profile Engagement Rings?

Low-profile engagement rings have always been a popular design choice as they come with many antique carvings. These low-profile diamond rings have a feature that sits low in the ring’s band. Therefore, instead of being lifted high in the air, the ring’s head (which holds the diamond or other gemstone) sits close to your finger. Bezel, prong, and halo settings with a range of stones, cuts, and shapes are popular low-set ring styles.

Why are They Called So?

The low-profile engagement ring got its name from the height of the diamond in relation to the band. These rings have a low, flush-to-the-band setting, with the diamond’s tip resting inside rather than on top of the band.

You’ll note from a side profile that the band practically thins out in the middle, allowing the setting to sit on top. This creates a subtle change in appearance but a significant alteration in the ring’s overall design and effect.

Many low-profile choices don’t come with peghead style settings, so if you wish to change the size or shape of the center diamond, it may be challenging to use your existing ring. That being said, let’s look at some of the pros and cons of low-profile engagement rings.

Types of Low Profile Engagement Ring Designs

High Set vs. Low Set Engagement Rings: The Differences

In simple terms, a high-setting engagement ring has a central gemstone that sits higher on the finger, while low-setting engagement rings have a center gemstone that sits flush with the finger.

So, which option is the superior one? The stone will shine out more with a higher profile, allowing you to flaunt your jewelry. However, there is a cost: you risk damaging the diamond or catching the ring on your clothes or other fibers. (Even if your diamond isn’t destroyed, your rock can readily harm other objects it comes into contact with, such as wood tables and other jewels.)

Low-setting engagement rings are ideal for folks with more active lifestyles- or hands-on occupations as such people are highly unlikely to hit the ring of sturdy surfaces or get a scratch. Even if you live an active lifestyle, you can still acquire a high-setting engagement ring, but you’ll have to make a point to not dent, chip, or scratch it.


The advantages of a low-profile setting are that they are difficult to damage and easy to keep clean. Moreover, they are available in a wide range of sizes, giving buyers plenty of options to browse from. Many low-profile engagement rings are a great choice as a wedding set, which is both a big positive.



With all their pros, these low-profile engagement rings, also come with a couple of drawbacks, one of the major being the ring not being very shiny. This is because low-profile rings have the disadvantage of the center stone not catching as much light, so you’ll miss out on some of the side bling that a high setting provides. Remember that many low-profile alternatives lack pegheads, making the setting style a fixed option. So in order to make a change in the size or shape of the center diamond, you’ll have to start from scratch.
