Bezel Set Diamond Stud Earrings.

Bezel set earrings are a setting whereby the diamond is set in a sleek and smooth metal encasement with just the top side of the diamond exposed. The rim or girdle of the diamond has a continuous strip of metal holding the diamond in place very securely. It is a popular misconception that diamonds with bezel settings sparkle less. This is not true. Light enters a diamond through the table facet and is redirected upwards by the pavilion facets to the crown facets which refract the light. This gives us the blue,red and white flashes of light more commonly known a fire brilliance and scintillation. This style may also be called rub-over-setting.
