I have finally decided on diamond studs and have 1.4ctw ct M warm diamonds GIA XXX stones with ideal proportions in mind. However the settings choice is tripping me up. I wear a yellow gold bezel solitaire necklace and I have narrowed it down to 3 designs;

* 4 prong basket;
* bezel with milgrain;
* plain bezel.

I'm looking for something that will be comfortable to wear pretty much 24/7, not catch on clothes or toddler's skin and not make the stone look smaller.

I like all 3 equally, which one would you choose please?

I am partial to 4 prong but I prefer the silver metals as I think it gives the show to the stone and not the setting. Of the 3 I prefer the 4 prong. My studs have always been 3 prong martini

I am not into bezel, I also like the simplicity of 4-prong which shows off the diamond really well. In additional, it will go well with jackets to dress up for fancier occasions.

Jackets? For the studs? What are they please?
