I actually prefer the look of the 6 prongs! I have 4 but I just love the way 6 look on this diamond! But I’d just go with whatever you like most!

I prefer 6 prong over 4. More secure and I like how it makes it appear more round as well. I have an OEC in a 6 prong!

I always prefer 6 prongs over 4 for a round stone. Your ring looks beautiful with 6!

I love the look of the 6 prongs, and a lower setting sounds more practical too. Congratulations!!! Gorgeous ring 🙂

I prefer 6 prongs, as I think 4 prongs makes the stone look square. Congratulations!

Another vote for the 6 prongs.  I like how the 6 prongs make the diamond appear more round than 4 prongs.  Plus more security with 6 prongs.  Congratulations on your engagement and it’s a beautiful ring!

6 prongs are v elegant and classic I think. I also prefer lower settings. I would stick!

Congrats Bee!

Visually, I prefer 6-prong rounds but I am a bit biased (a 6-prong round solitaire is my favourite setting).

From a unbiased perspective, it is said that 6-prongs better protect the stone while 4-prongs can let more light in.

I prefer 4 prongs, I chose that specifically because I couldn’t decide between a round and cushion cut stone and the 4-prong setting makes it look like it could be either. I also wanted the stone to be visible and the setting to be open from the side, two extra prongs blocks the side view/bottom half of the stone.
