SETTINGS

CLAW SET

Claw settings  hold the diamond with metal projections, referred to as prongs. Stones in studs are usually held by 3 or 4 prongs, although some antique designs have up to 8.

BAZEL SET

Bezel settings  hold diamonds by enclosing them within a metal band. They are considered safer than prong settings but conceal more of the diamond’s surface.

STYLE

MARTINI STYLE

The diamond is set close to the ear, and as a result, the earring is less likely to droop. Some dislike its conical shape, since it can dig into and stretch the piercing hole. The likelihood of this varies from person to person and many never experience any problems.

BASKET-STYLE

Basket-style settings have a flat bottom, and the stones are generally set further from the ear than martini-style settings. This is a great choice if you are concerned that martini-style studs could dig into your ear.

CROWN STYLE

Similar to basket-style settings, the crown-style setting has a flat bottom, but its sturdier construction causes the diamond to sit further from the ear creating a noticeable difference.

BAcks

STEM & BUTTERFLY

Butterfly backs are the most common stud back type. Easy to use, they are the most convenient back, but, over time, they may lose their tension and require replacing.

LA POUSSETTE BACKS

La Poussette backs feature a disc with opposing spring-loaded clips that latch onto a specially designed post. To release the back from its post, pinch the clips. These backs are easy to use, comfortable, and secure.

SCREW STEMS & BACKS

Screw Stems are jeweller's number one choice for security. They comprise a nut spun along a threaded post. Changing them is a time-consuming process, so they are best suited for earrings that you are unlikely to switch. Another consideration is that those with sensitive ears may find the thicker, threaded post irritating.
