It’s not for me. I’m also concerned about the durability of it. I have close to a 2 ct. in a 4 prong setting, and it’s already come out once. When I took it in for repair, the jeweler strongly suggested I go to a 6 prong setting.

I love how it looks, but I’d be worried about security too. It helps, though, that the prongs seem really wide/sturdy.

@cirk:  I don’t like that at all. Sorry. Not to mention I’d be terrified to lose the diamond.

I like it, but I would also be concerned with how secure it is. I have a 6 prong ering and I have knocked one of the prongs loose so I would be too clumsy to wear a 3 prong ring for sure!

I don’t like the way it looks.  I looks like an arrow or something.

If you think about it, it’s like a semi-bezel setting, and the prongs seem to occupy more of the circumference of the ring than four prongs would. I think for a stone that isn’t too large, three prongs would be nice and secure.

3 prongs are going to be less secure than more, since if one gets bent/broken, the stone wouldnt be held in well at all! But in this case, the prongs have been made really sturdy, so the chances of that happening seem pretty small.

I’ve never seen anything like it before, it’s really unique, and I like the twist. It leaves a lot of the stone open at the side, which means you could chip the girdle, but no more than for a semi-bezel setting.
