ahh i almost got a ring with diamonds on the prongs! i think it’s sucha  pretty setting! the only reason i didn’t go with that type of setting and decided on just a simple solitaire instead was that i am accident prone and clumsy. i constantly have bruises all over my body and i tend to whack my jewelry around a lot. i KNEW i would lose diamonds by whacking it into stuff (the jeweler even advised me against that setting when i said i was accident prone haha). but it’s soooo pretty!! 🙂

My ring has diamonds in the prongs. I don’t have a picture of the prongs and I’m not at home so I can’t get one, hopefully I remember later 😉 My center stone is 1.37 and I love the detail! The only problem I’ve had is when they put the center stone in the prongs on one of the diamonds in the prong got loose and they had to replace it, so make sure you ask the jeweler to reinforce the prongs on each of the pave diamonds. Nobody would have ever noticed but I knew and with as much as we paid I was going to have those fixed by golly!

My ring has stones on the prongs! Here’s a stock photo. My actual ring has a plain band, but is decked out on the prongs. I love it, but one drawback is a lot of people look at my ring from the top view and never notice.

Oh, and I think my prongs make my ring look bigger. This is because the prongs are extended toward the base of the band, making the whole look of the head heftier. I guess a girl’s gotta love her centerstone looking larger, eh?

And this sort of ring, while looking classic and basic from the top view, really does look lovely and intricate from a 3/4 view.

Seems like an iffy place to put diamonds.  I always read about girls’ prongs getting bent or messed up.

@JoJo Bananas: i have to agree with you on this one as I am staring at my own prongs…it seems scary…

Ahh, I’m jealous! So pretty. We didn’t think of that, although we did get hearts on the prongs.

Flutterbi- Here’s a few pics. My centerstone is 1 carat. I also asked for 1.5 carats, but backed out at the last second because I thought it might look too big (moissanite is so affordable, the difference in price between 1-2 carats is a few hundred dollars.) 

As far as the stones popping out, I haven’t had any problems. I’m the clumsiest person I know, and have dinged it quite hard at the coffee shop where I work, and everything is still very secure. My metal is palladium, so I don’t know if that would effect how sturdy the stones are set.
