Which of these settings will bring out the sparkle of the diamonds most? and why? Anyone wants to share their experience, thank you!

In a well cut diamond, it doesn''t matter what setting you have. It''s the Cut of the diamond that brings out the sparkle.

Thritto! Having owned both though I have to say that while I love love love bezel earrings I think a delicate 4 prong (like the WF W-prong, I have them, they are gorgeous!) is more classic. I think the bezels are more trendy, but that''s just me. Both really do sparkle though!

Thank you all. You guys are right! I have a pair of bezeled earrings bought before PS time and somehow they are not so sparkly and I thought its because of the bezel settings. But you guys hit it right on the nail, its the CUT!!

Ditto the others! As long as they are well cut you can''t go wrong with a setting. I''d just get what you prefer! I personally love the look of delicate three prong martinis and thin bezel settings. The bezels really do wonders to add size and the martinis are such a delicate look that show off the shape of the stone and you hardly see any metal.
