I have a 6 prong and have no problems. Where did you get your ring? I think I would contact them to let them know you are not happy. I got mine from James Allem and have had absolutely no problems at all.

The new wedding set I’m having designed is bezel-set because I’m always afraid of scratching myself in the eye with the rings I have that have prongs!  Have you looked in to bezel set rings?

I have accidentally done that a few times when I wasn’t paying attention, but I got used to it and stopped. The jeweler can always make adjustments for you. If it keeps going, take it in and see what they say.

@Bzztjay:  I have a 4-prong, and not only do I regularly scratch myself/DH, but I once scratched a kid at work with it! My favorite kid, too! (his Mom was FURIOUS)

I think it might have more to do with how high it’s set!

Sorry it’s sideways, I’m on my phone, but YES. This was from smacking my hand on the door. The scroll work, while beautiful, digs into my finger all the time.

I have a 6-prong tulip set solitaire.  We had the prongs made nice and smooth, so it’s not so much a weapon.  It catches fuzz from my sweaters and gloves but not much else.

I have a six prong engagement ring and have yet to have a problem with it. However, I do have a beautiful marquis aquamarine ring and I’ve had to stop wearing it because it causes scratches and wealts.

I got a low set, four prong, oval solitaire and haven’t had a single scratch from it. It also doesn’t catch threads or fabric, nor does it puncture my lab gloves which was the idea when we picked out the setting.

I have a low set smaller diamond with six prongs and I’ve only had it catch once. I actually had the diamond dig out a good bit of plastic on my husband’s office chair.

I didn’t pay attention to prongs when I made my ring, but I haven’t been scratching myself or my husband.

I did have scratching and pulling-hair-out problems when I had a solitaire.

This doesn’t show the side, and I don’t really have a picture of the side, but you can see the prongs, I guess…
