The Best Setting for Your Diamond Studs

Diamond earrings are classic, gorgeous, and endlessly customizable. One of the main things to consider when shopping for diamond earrings is your choice of setting. A diamond earring’s setting hugely impacts its overall style. Looking for something more glamorous, more modern, or more elegant? There’s a setting for you. There’s really no one best diamond stud earring setting for everyone— what’s best for you is what you love, what fits your personal style. But what are the different styles of settings? We’ve put together a list of the three best diamond stud earring settings below.

Prong: Classic and Beautiful

4-Prong Basket Diamond Studs in 14k White Gold

Prong settings are perhaps the most popular setting for diamond stud earrings. In this setting, the prongs surround your diamond, securely cradling them in place. This is an elegant, classic style that really lets your diamonds shine. With a prong setting, you can see the sides of your diamond in addition to the top, giving you a touch of extra sparkle.

3-Prong Martini Diamond Studs in 14k White Gold

There are two different prong options to choose from, 4-prong basket settings and 3-prong martini settings. The 4-prong basket is the most commonly used prong setting— it’s a true classic. 3-prong martini settings give a different, more streamlined silhouette, as the diamond sits more snugly in the triangular setting. 3-prong settings are a great option for those who love this sleek variation on the classic prong setting.

Bezel: Modern and Strong

Bezel Set Diamond Studs in 14k White Gold

Bezel settings offer a more modern look. In a bezel setting, the edges of the top of your diamond are enclosed within the setting, creating a simple and sleek appearance. But bezel settings are not only stylish— they’re also incredibly secure. Because your diamonds are totally enclosed in the setting, they have additional protection from any bumps, drops, or scrapes.

Halo: Gorgeously Glamorous

Halo Set Diamond Studs in 14k White Gold

The halo setting is incredibly glamorous. In a halo setting, your center diamonds are surrounded by a ring, or “halo,” of smaller diamonds. This adds extra sparkle to your look, and makes your center diamonds look larger. Halo settings have been a popular style in recent years, as many are drawn their glamorous style and big impact.
