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.

I'm writing to give a quick shout out to Sarah Sellers. I had a pretty incredible retail experience with her today.She was recommended to me by a co-worker when i asked, "Do you know of a jeweler in town who could find me a wedding band that is less traditional?" As soon as I entered the store, Sarah was a great listener and together, in a very deliberate, focused, open and conversational way, we created what I've been looking for in vain for the better part of two years.We've only just begun our customization journey together, but I can tell it's going to be really great.It was such a relief to find someone like her that understood my vision, even when I wasn't quite sure what it was. Not yet, anyway! Ok. Just a quick note to say how much I appreciated that experience today. You're lucky to have her! Donovan McKnight
My fiance purchased my engagement ring from Van Scoy. I accompanied him a few times during the selection process. Helen was our consultant, and let me say, I just love her! She was very accommodating and walked us through the entire process, offering her expertise along the way, but at the same time not being pushy. We didn't feel pressured at all to make a purchase, thanks to Helen. Ashley H.
"I would love to recognize Sarah at the Van Scoy Greensboro, NC store. She has been absolutely wonderful in her consistent customer service. She goes above and beyond to help me and my fiancee find exactly what we need for our wedding bands. This experience has been so easy, fun, and satisfying. Thank you, Sarah Cathy Wyler
Van Scoy was the only jeweler in our area who treated my husband respectfully when he went in to inquire about my engagement ring. They took him seriously and treated him as a potential customer, not some kid who doesn't have enough money to be worthy of stepping foot in a jewelry store. The were kind to him and supported and guided him. They treated us equally well when we picked out our wedding bands. They worked with us financially and respected our choices. Christina
