Diamond studs will never go out of style and can be passed down for generations to come.
Picking the Perfect Pair
There are several different kinds of stud earrings to choose from and King Jewelers’ highly-skilled team can help you understand the basics. This way, you have a better idea of what to expect when you begin your shopping experience. Each of these options has its own advantage while maintaining a mesmerizing sophistication and grace.
Four-Prong or “Basket Style” Mountings
The four-prong mounting is one of the more standard diamond stud styles. Some people also refer to this as the “basket style” because the mounting actually does resemble a basket. Having four prongs to hold your diamonds in place will allow you to rest assured that your diamonds are safe and secure. Additionally, the four-prong mounting tends to sit up a little higher from the ear lobe than other styles, giving the illusion of a bigger stone.
Three-Prong or “Martini Style” Mountings
The three-prong diamond setting commonly goes by the name of “martini style.” The three prongs secure your diamond and come to a point at the back. This causes the earrings to sit nearly flush against the earlobe. Furthermore, this makes the earrings slightly more comfortable and easy to wear in everyday life. Looking at this design vertically, it actually resembles a martini glass, with the post acting as the stem of the glass.
Bezel Style Mountings
For maximum security, many people lean towards a bezel-style stud mounting. If the person you’re shopping for tends to be a bit more rough with their jewelry, then this mounting may be the most ideal. The durable bezel mounting secures the stone while adding a little something extra to the center stone. A high-polished gold or platinum bezel frames the stone, making them just as stylish as they are secure.
Halo Style Mountings
Halo designs add a little extra sparkle to the average stud earring. Oftentimes, halos create the illusion of a single, large diamond at a much more attainable price point. Halos are crafted by mounting melee diamonds around the perimeter of the centerstone. These smaller diamonds can be pave-set, channel-set, or even prong-set. Therefore, the earring radiates a superfluous amount of sparkle with even the slightest turn of the head.
Lastly, let’s introduce earring jackets, which have made a comeback more recently on the red carpet. An earring jacket is a removable addition to a standard stud earring that provides you with a temporary new look. In most cases, the stud goes into the earlobe while the jacket slides onto the back of the post, then secured by an earring back. Alternatively, halo-style earring jackets sit between the front of the earlobe and the back of the stud. Typically, this design bestows you with a brand new and alternative look that mixes and matches effortlessly with your favorite diamond stud earrings.
