Connector chains are the best for flat Diamonds slices. Along with the bezel setting, they display the beauty of the diamond slice from both sides. Each bezel setting is connected through a series of chain links.
Collet settings are cousins to the bezel setting and are usually meant for raised rose cuts, because they create a gap between the metal band and the stone. It allows for more passage of light.
Wire wrappings are thin precious metal strands meant to create intricate metallic designs while securing the diamond slice or gemstone in place. This requires pure skill and imagination, but it is more suitable to wire wrapping thick pieces of gemstone and diamond slices.
