C'est pronunciation

I've noticed that sometimes c'est is pronounced with the hard "t" sound at the end, phonetically: set; and sometimes with a silent "t", phonetically: say. Is there a rule governing which pronunciation is used in a given situation?

It is only pronounced with the final t when the word following starts by a vowel. For example: C'est une personne. It joins the two words together. It is like that because it sounds better.
