Flush set and Bezel set

Many designers like to work with flush settings for the streamlined
modern lines they can achieve. The diamond is sunk into the mounting so
it is almost level with the surface, with only the table (the top)
showing.

A bezel setting has a collar of gold wrapped around the diamond that
can add height to a flush style setting, giving designers more
dimension for a great modern look. The downside is a reasonable part of
your diamond must be covered in the gold that is hammered over the
edges (usually with a micro jack hammer).

These two setting styles offer great protection for your
diamond and while you would think the brilliance would be reduced, this
is not true. Ideal cut diamonds do not let light in from behind anyway,
and the enemy of all diamonds is dirt! Most bezel and flush settings
have open settings and allow you to clean the back of the diamond very
easily.
