Just purchased 2 stones with 4 prong basket setting for earrings. The thing is,,,, the basket is flying out of my wifes ear.
Is there any flush settings that are better and don't look ridiculously like its a basket with a falling diamond?

yes. martinis sit closer to the ear than basket settings.

I think it has more to do with the angle of each persons piercing. My basket studs (1.5 ctw) are perfect on my ears- straight ahead, no drooping. On my MIL they are all droopy and wonky.

I think I may go with martini set, less metal, more flush....

I'd rather see more of the diamond than the basket setting...
