The bales are big enough to accommodate a range of chain sizes which allows the pendant to be worn with a variety of chains and styles of clothing.

The mirroring effect of a bezel made of white gold or platinum will give the impression that the diamond is larger than it really is. If the bezel is made of red or yellow gold, it sets off the diamond by providing a contrasting color frame. The three-stone has three diamonds of graduated sizes mounted one above the other. The diamonds are usually prong set and attached to a chain from a bale surrounding or hidden behind the top diamond (Lanna Lewis).
