I am teaching someone faceting and he cut the GEM101 stone in synth emerald at 8mm

He is asking me which setting he can get to make an earring. Any suggestions?

Style of earring? Or any head that a round, hexagonal, and possibly some cushions may work.

I think
He is looking for a post

I was concerned about a round because they are usually 4 posts and that would leave 2 points exposed

Understood, but there earrings. So not like they will be subjected to the wear and tare of a ring. You can use our showcase site to browse post styles to get an idea of what is out there in findings. Just an offer no commitments. Let me know if you need any help.
