I love the change! 6-prongs are truly classic. It matches your set very well. Normally I am a fan of 4-prong but I can’t help but notice how much 6-prongs compliments round stones better. Thanks for sharing!

Love it! I also have a six-prong–it was an absolute must for me. It may be because my mom’s e-ring has six prongs, but I think it somehow highlights the shape of the round stone. Four prongs can sometimes make round stones look more square!

Beautiful! And I love, love, LOVE your band! I wish I could pull something like that off with my ring and sometimes it makes me want a solitaire haha

I have a six prong round brilliant cut ring too! I love it. My mom used to only have four prongs and one broke and she lost her diamond. I made sure to tell my fiance that story more than once, heh.

Four prongs (unless north south east west) make a round diamond look square.  Six prongs make a diamond look hexagonal.  I much prefer hexagonal so I think that your new setting is much prettier.

One of my frustrations is that diamonds are cut for size rather than beauty or interesting shape.  One day I will become very rich (I hope) and then I will buy a radiant that has such deep corner cuts that it becomes a regular octagon.

And I agree your diamond does look bigger in the 6 prong……

Gorgeous! I love and have a four prong, but I do think you made a great choice. The new setting really makes your diamond stand out.
