The only reason for considering the semi-bezel option is the girdle. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve read on here how - with very thin girdles - a bezel is recommended to protect the diamond. I know David said it’d be fine, and it’s not that I doubt his assessment; rather, it’s assessing my own comfort/risk level with it that I need to wrap my head around, I suppose.
