The type of setting into which a diamond or gem is placed can influence the way the designer wishes the piece to be seen. Here is an example where a buttercup setting has the viewer perceiving a small flower.
Placing a diamond into such a setting can engender feelings of lightness or delicacy which is associated with blossoms and flowers. Such a simple formula, to utilize four diamonds, total weight of .60 carats (K-L color; VS2-SI1 clarity) and place each into an element of 14k white gold and voila…emotion.
Screw post fittings of 14k white gold finish the charming vintage earrings.
