rosebuddy :  there really is a cut that is a hybrid between the two, so maybe that’s what yours is. Which would be awesome since there not at all common! Here’s a couple moval cuts for comparison. the bottom is an antique cut

rosebuddy :  My jeweler recommended the 6 prongs due to the size of the stone and the need for additional security with the placement of the prongs in case a prong breaks. I must admit that it gets a bit annoying when people so frequently misidentify the stone shape but I know that at quick glance that’s what it looks like. Additionally, I’d rather deal with a minor annoyance here and there than risk loss. Good luck w/your decision…it is a lovely ring whatever you decide!

If your jeweler insists on 6 prongs, maybe they can set it like this? I think it would minimize the marquise effect.

rosebuddy :  I know some people don’t like the look of a two tone ring, but it makes there prongs much less noticeable if you want to keep six for security reasons. Depending on the style of the setting, you could keep the basket yellow gold and only have the prongs in a white metal.
