My ring is basket setting and I have a 1 ct diamond with it. It’s very safe and my jeweler told me unless I use a tool push the diamond out, otherwise, it’s almost impossible to lose the centre stone.  

And because it’s a bsket setting, I feel safer when i always bang my ring on desk…

Get what you love and just insure your ring.

My ring is a round set in a six prong in a basket setting and looks great. Structurally speaking it seems sturdier than my mom’s six prong cathedral setting (which has broken off the band before) or my friend’s 4-prong regular setting (non-basket, but not high enough to be a cathedral set) for her princess cut.

My ring is four prong, not basket, and feels very secure to me. Don’t worry about them, if you feel comfortable that it’s secure (I’ve seen >1ct diamonds in 4 prong) which it would be, just say you appreciate their concern but the jeweler has given you piece of mind that if somethung were to happen, it’s covered by warranty (sometimes a little white lie can’t hurt)

Ive had a plan classic tiffany style 6 prong thats high set and a low set basket solitaire that also has 6 prongs..both were very secure..you could do a basket setting with 6 prongs and make everyone happy..heres some pics

I have a 4 prong basket setting holding a. 74 RB.  I never have any worries with it and the prongs seem very sturdy. My jeweler never did explain anything about the basket I just knew I wanted it because I was replicating my grandmother’s vintage ering. My mom’s ering has a 6 prong setting and I always feared I would snap it off in a heartbeat since I’m very hard on my ring.
