An attractive alternative to traditional stud earrings, martini settings lend all of their glory to the featured diamond within. The minimalist design consists of a 3 prong, funnel shaped wire setting, most of which remains hidden behind the diamond while worn.
The martini glass shape allows it to be drawn close into the ear once it is clasped. This feature makes the martini settings a favorite when choosing larger diamond studs, which typically sit higher on the ear and require heavier hardware.
This style can be created in yellow gold, white gold or platinum, still most people prefer white metals in order to accentuate the color of the stones. When using larger diamonds, screw backs or la pousette backs are recommended for added security.
