Wanted to share my reset for anyone who is thinking of doing the same.

1ctw studs from lightbox. I really liked the look of the original setting, but the martini settings hurt my ears and I wanted something I could comfortably sleep in. Plus I wanted to get rid of any possible nickel.

So here they are. 18 k wg.

Beautiful reset. I love your choice of 6 prongs. Very classic.

Thank you for this post - you've just changed my mind from purchasing a martini setting today - which I've been researching for a ridiculous amount of time. Yours look so good!

These are a beautiful size. Are the 1carat total so .5 each?

Yes! .5 ct each. They are now avaliable in 2 ctw, but I think that would be too big on my tiny ears (is there such a thing, too big??). I am very happy with this size for every day wear. :wavey:

I have to say that I love the look of martini settings. They make the setting completely disappear. However, they hurt my ears and made the piercings slightly larger. For me, they simply didnt work, but they may for someone else.
I like these settings, they are fairly low set and very comfortable. But you can see the setting slightly from the side view. To put it simply, not as nice looking as martinis, but for me martinis is not an option.
I hope this helps...

I feel the same way! I have been SO tempted to get a 2ctw pair, especially with all the recent sales, but whenever I’m about to pull the trigger I look in the mirror and realize I would hardly ever wear them — my 1ctw fits my ear/lifestyle perfectly, and even feels a touch large honestly. I still might treat myself in the future for a “dress up” pair, but daily wear it’s 1ctw all the way for me.

I agree! I have been looking at the lightbox site many times... But nothing speaks to me. If my daughter was a few years older I would buy something for her.

However... If they would start selling larger stones... I would really like a few stones in different cuts, put them together in a cluster pendant on a long chain, so that I could play with them while wearing the pendant. That would be something! :bigsmile:

Ditto for me. Love the martini look so much but came to realize that style was probably not going to work for my ears since my piercing is already pretty stretched. After seeing yours I pulled the trigger on a 6-prong setting. I'm excited for them!

Maybe a silly question, but can someone help me understand why the six prong setting would be more comfortable to sleep in than martini?

agree that the Lightbox martini is uncomfortable to sleep in

Sorry for the late reply. :wavey:
I felt that in order to get the look right, to make the diamonds seem to float on the ear, I had to pull the martinis tight on my ear, into the piercings. That made the setting stretch my piercings, and I could feel that. I may be overly sensitive and especially so when I saw the piercings getting larger. Someone else would perhaps not be bothered by it, but for me it was obvious.
My six prong setting sits on the ear, impossible to have it go into the piercing like the martini setting. Bear in mind that I am used to sleeping with studs. I guess that it takes some getting used to! I cannot feel the studs at all.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply! I really don’t want to stretch my piercing so I may get mine reset as well. Thank you!

I wondered about the martini setting stretching the piercing. Thus far I have not had that problem, but I don't have to tighten the setting too much to the ear to achieve the "floating" look, and I don't sleep in my studs. You can always try out the three prong and see how it works for you, then reset if there are any issues. That had been my plan, but so far so good. I wear the 1ctw lightbox studs daily (0.5 each stud).

I agree with @FL_runner that it may be different for everyone and depending on how long you keep them on. I use my studs always, only take them off to shower and to clean them. Lets say they are an integral part of my body.
I do think however that no matter how tight you put them on it may be a good idea to check the piercings from time to time so that they have not started stretching, unless you are ok with that.
