What a Stud: Choosing a Diamond Setting for Diamond Stud Earrings

By  , Monday, December 06, 2010

Diamond stud earrings are among the most popular and versatile earring styles. You can wear a pair of diamond studs with a ball gown to a black tie affair, or rely on them as your go-to daily earrings. Diamond stud earrings make a perfect gift, because it is impossible to not like them! But if you are choosing a pair of diamond stud earrings, whether for yourself or as a gift, you have to choose a diamond setting that will suit your style and preferences. Although these earrings are the ultimate in simplicity, there are many diamond settings available that can completely change the look of the earring!

Prong Settings

Prong settings are the most popular diamond setting for engagement rings and diamond earrings. However, there are more options available for diamond studs, so you can be creative even if you opt for this classic choice.

Three Prong Martini Diamond Studs

The three prong setting is a cool, trendy twist on the classic diamond setting. It’s called the martini setting because of the way the prongs form an elegant shape like a martini glass.


Eight Prong Diamond Studs

The eight prong diamond setting is a unique look for a pair of diamond stud earrings. The prongs form a dramatic look as well as holding the diamond securely, and giving small stones a bigger impact.

Bezel Settings

Another classic diamond setting for engagement rings, bezel settings can be used on their own in diamond studs or combined with other design elements to create diamond stud earrings with real impact. A bezel setting is one of the most protective diamond settings, and it adds a sleek, modern look to any piece of diamond jewelry.
