Is there such a thing as a round halo w/6 prongs around round center stone?

I’ve seen one with 8 prongs, so I’m positive they make them with 6 prongs.

You could also go with a halo that had a bezel setting which is even more secure!

You can have pretty much any number of prongs that you like… just have the jeweler/vendor make it that way.  However, I don’t think halo settings look right with more than 4 on a round — unless it’s like a 5+ ct stone.

prettyinpink11:  A bezel is a good idea if the additional prongs are really just for security… a bezel will be more aesthetically pleasing with a halo as well.

BelliniChic:  If you are hard on jewelry, a halo may not be the best idea due to all the pave stones/prongs.  If you are hard on jewelry, you will be at risk of losing stones left and right.   

I will say this… if you choose to go custom, I would absolutely recommend you go with a reputable jeweler who has made many of the style halo you will have AND you have seen examples of his work.  All halo settings are not equal because all benches are not equal in the quality of workmanship (esp in pave).  Have you looked at the Ritani halos?  They are very well made and are cost-efficient.  They also do custom work.

The prongs, the more secure is the stone, so I love multi prongs! My floral double halo has 10 prongs around the center stone. Also, here is a setting on moissyco with many prongs:

MrsUPS:  your ring is lovely, but it has 4 double prongs, not 6… this is great because it give the look of 4, but with more security.  🙂
