After choosing the earring style and gemstones, it all comes down to choosing the setting style. Setting style is a way to place and set gemstones to further enhance the look of an earring. Although there is no specification as to which setting style should be chosen for a particular earring style some of the popular styles and combinations are:
The most preferred setting style of all, highly used for studs. A prong setting is a way to hold a gemstone with help of prongs introduced from the basket of the earring.
Available in various styles like 2 prong, 3 prongs, 4 prongs, 6 prongs, etc. 4 Prong setting is the most common style in prong settings.
One of the most protective setting styles, the gemstone is set within the precious metal itself and the metal completely encloses the gemstone within. As there is no additional support introduced like in a prong setting, bezel set earrings are more durable.
Another favorite setting style channel setting is very similar to bezel setting in its function with a basic difference, in bezel setting metal surrounds the gemstone and can be used for single stone and solitaires only whereas in channel setting comes into play when more than one gemstone is to be set, gemstones are placed closely and are supported with the pressure created amongst them within a metal boundary.
Back findings or earring backings serve to keep earrings in place and prevent the loss of fine jewelry and valuable gemstone earrings.

As the name suggests the closing has a ball closure instead of traditional closures, it gives a refined look from front and back both.
Another modern style having a flat back rather than traditional screws, this backing does not hurt from the back as the post does not touch your skin directly.
The shape of different types of earrings can influence the way your face looks. Earrings can make it seem as your face is wider, thinner, longer, or larger.

You have hit a jackpot and are the luckiest of us all, you can wear all to your heart’s desire but simple studs and geometric drop earrings accentuate your lovely cheekbones and other facial features.
Also a lucky group, all styles of drop earrings will help elongate your face and also make it look slimmer but avoid hoops, button studs, and large circular earrings as they emphasize your face shape.
If your forehead is wider than your cheeks and the lower half of your face narrows like a heart then you have a heart-shaped face. Try teardrop or chandelier earrings because the earrings are wider at the bottom, they will fill in the lower part of your face, making it more balanced.
If you have a long, thin face choose earrings that emphasize the width of your face, it is best to wear circular earrings, short dangles, hoops, and clustered earrings
