Thank you! :) I specialize in bezel settings, I try really hard to get them as clean as possible :)

Does a bezel setting work well with a faceted stone? I always assumed it wouldn't let enough light in?

y'know, it really depends on the stone (and the bezel). sometimes i'll leave the back of the setting open if i think it needs it; usually i just polish the silver backplate underneath the stone, so that it reflects light back through the stone like a mirror. it makes for a really neat effect on translucent stones, giving them a shimmer and movement when the light shifts :) this ring is an example of that. this ring's stone in particular though is a rose cut, so it's like a faceted cabochon as opposed to a traditional faceted stone, so it sticks further out of the bezel than a brilliant cut stone would. i also make sure that my bezels are the right height, too high of a bezel can block light. bezels definitely have their pros and cons though, so in some cases, you might be right that a bezel wouldn't be the best for certain stones. anyway, err, sorry for the ramble :D
