    @missindiauk:  Just my two cents but I like the ring as it is 🙂

    I think the 6 prong looks lovely with a round diamond – it helps enhance the round shape!

    It’ll definitely make it look like a triangle, you know?  Mine is a round brilliant with 4 prongs, which makes it look a little square.  Imagining that square turned 90 degrees, I see a slightly triangle-shaped stone…

    I voted for the 6 prong only because with compass prongs, you’ll have a hard time finding a wedding band that will sit flush with it – there will have to be a notch in it and you’ll have to keep repositioning them every time your rings spin, unless you get them soldered together!

    Also, your ring is very pretty!!! 😀  Congratulations!
