Think of the bezel as a fence that leans in at the top.   You cut your stone with a slight bevel (and make the bezel follow that bevel which holds it securely. 
Photos should be uploaded to Photobucket or like site (free) and then copy the link for the img (the lowest (last) of the four options offered for each photo.  Then paste that address (img link) into your message here.    Practice and you will get it quickly.  Tom
