Four Prong Studs
For most people, when you picture diamond earrings you tend to imagine them displayed in classic four prong studs. Over the past half century, this traditional earring setting has become the accepted norm for everyday stud earrings. The simplicity of this cylindrical, 4 prong, die-struck setting provides a neutral backdrop for nearly any size round diamond.
Light weight and reasonably priced, this stud earring is available in white gold, yellow gold or platinum; still, white metals are recommended and better suited in representing a diamonds true color. Diamonds set in four prong stud earrings tend to sit a bit taller on the ear, however they can be made to sit lower depending on your taste.
