Pumpkineverything:  I have a 6 prong solitaire with channel set side stones. I prefer the 6 to the 4 prong for a round stone because it doesn’t box off the diamond and I like the extra security. for reference I have a sz 4 finger with a .72 round center

Pumpkineverything:  I have a 4 prong double claw. I loved the “vintage” feel it added. I liked that my 4 prong added a little boxiness to my stone, without doing a cushion cut.

Pumpkineverything:  I guess mine is kinda 8 prong. 1 set of 2 prongs in 4 places. Did that make sense? Lol!

Double prongs are awesome! 🙂 my amethyst has what I think is called a basket setting.
