4.  My first engagement ring from my first marriage had 6 and it looked like a marque.

4. I like the look of less metal. Someone I know just got engaged with an oval solitaire with Six prongs and they are such large prongs they take away from the diamond.

6 for rounds, but I love the look of 4 on ovals. I guess though if the prongs were delicate, either would look great.

I love the look of 6 (my fingers are longer and thin, which is why I like ovals and marquises and long shapes on my fingers). That said, it depends on the design and the setting I like the most for my oval ends up having 4 prongs, so that’s what I’m getting made.

I have an oval, love the classic 4 for an oval and 6 for a round:-)

I think a 4 prong setting enhances the shape of an oval better

I like 6 on rounds (I find 4 makes them look square or cushion cut), but 4 on ovals

I have a 4 prong for my round but prefer a 6. If it was oval I’d want a 4 prong.
