Much like solitaire engagement rings, diamond stud earrings form a staple of a modern woman’s jewelry collection. Stud earrings are often called solitaire earrings as well.
Stud earrings may come in prong or bezel settings and what works for you depends on the combination of functionality and your style preferences.
The prong setting, where the diamond is held in the metal frame by prongs, is more glamorous and bold. However, the bezel setting in no less appealing. In a bezel setting, the diamond is held in the metal frame by a bezel that surrounds the circumference of the diamond completely.
Needless to say, the diamond is more noticeable and looks more enticing in a prong setting. But it’s also more susceptible to wear-and-tear. Therefore, we recommend getting stud earrings in the bezel setting for everyday-wear earrings while keeping the prong-set earrings for parties and special occasions.
Stud earrings are further categorized as basket style, martini style, princess and halo stud earrings.
In a martini style earring, the diamond is held in a 3-prong frame that tapers from the top toward the bottom where it comes to a pointed, conical end giving the whole frame a resemblance of a glass of martini. Hence, the name. The diamond sits close to the earlobe, making it very well-balanced.
The basket style is the most common diamond stud earrings style. In this 4-prong frame, the top is slightly broader than the flat bottom and the diamond sits a little further away from the earlobe.
Both princess and halo diamond stud earrings are incredibly popular owing to the brilliance of their designs. A princess cut is one of the most popular diamond cuts and beloved by millions, as is the halo setting. In a halo setting, a larger center stone is surrounded by smaller micropavé diamonds to enhance appeal and brilliance.
