I am curious as to how others feel about the post being at the
top for an earring setting.
Hi Beth, In a setting for round stones, it shouldn't really make a
difference. On the other hand, when I make settings for oval cabs, I
will put the post toward one end or the other, so the earrings will
tend to stay in a vertical orientation when being worn. If the posts
were in the center of the settings the earrings can rotate, which
might look odd with a pair of ovals. Since I don't have any pierced
ears, I can't try them on for effect...
