My wife wants some bezel set diamond earrings. Is there a certain quality in a round brilliant stone that would be better than others. And i guess how good a quality do they really need to be in a bezel setting? Thanks,.

Depends on the size of the stone, eye-clean is probably at 1 foot away definition. Durability wise, thinner girdle would not be that much of a problem as bezel setting will protect it and a ear-ring stone is less likely to be knocked that much. Cut wise, shallow pavilion, in the ear-ring stone range of the HCA could work but not the proportions with leakage.

The stone size is .3 to .5ct. Im assuming when you say the HCA ear-ring range, its the one in the lower portion of the red w/ lower HCA scores?
