4 prong? 6 prong? Double claw prong? What did you get and more importantly, why?

4 prongs for me. Anything more starts to overtake the stone in my opinion.

I ended up getting 4 prongs becuase I felt the six prongs would make my oval stone look  round. I opted for double claw prong becuase I felt it added a more vintage look to it. Hope this helps! 🙂

I love double claw prongs, if the stone is big enough, otherwise it overpowers the stone.

I love this one on ebay and am thinking of getting it with a 2 carat stone in it.

@GoldieGlitters:  4 prongs leave more of the stone exposed, so IMO it’s easier to knock/break it. Not sure how fragile moissanite is, but diamonds can crack/chip if hit just right. 6 prongs make the diamond look rounder and more secure.

I love the look of some 4-prong round settings, but I’d probably go with 6 for the security factor unless I found a 4-prong I was completely in love with.

4 double claw!  I really love how it squares off the stone a little.  Cushion was a runner-up choice, but I find cushions to be a little too square unless they’re huge, and I didn’t want a huge ring.

@GoldieGlitters:  It’s a 1ct Amora enhanced from moissaniteco (4.5 finger).  Here’s the set, which looks way worse online than in person.

I have a round 1 carat with 6 prongs. I like the 6 prongs because it makes the stone look more round, and I like the design on the sides of my prongs

six prong for my diamond to keep it secure. if one prong breaks, my diamond will still be securely kept in place until i can get it fixed. 

even though four prong shows more of the diamond, there’s a greater chance that i could lose my diamond if one prong breaks.

@GoldieGlitters:  Yeah, I was nervous about buying a ring and a stone sight-unseen too and was really pleasantly surprised.  Moissaniteco has an easy return policy on loose stones, if you want to check it out before you buy!
