While we’ve provided a must-read set of tips to make your engagement ring look bigger, we have one more savvy tip to add to the list. NYC-based private jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb, recently spilled a simple detail that makes all the difference.

A bezel is a very secure way to protect a diamond for the girls who are rough on their hands. It also enhances the overall look of the center stone, giving it a slightly larger appearance. With a smooth shiny finish, like the ones pictured here, the bezel is a super modern way to re-create the classic solitaire,” Gottlieb shared. Intrigued? Check out the proof below.
