Daisylovex3:  I think 6 prong is so beautiful!!!  After seeing several 6 prong rings, it makes me want my ring to be 6 prong instead of 4.  I’ve also read should one prong break on a 6, the other 5 will keep it in place better than if you had 4 prong ring.  Here is my 4 prong ring.  I also think the 6 prong ring makes it look more round.

I prefer 6-prongs because of the more “round” look (and I love my profile to pieces), but I think it depends on how the prongs look on a given setting because if they’re bigger and bulkier, I’d probably then go for 4 because 6 might be too distracting.

Lurrrrrv my 6 prong! It makes me feel more secure, plus it makes the diamond look rounder instead of cushion-y (as PPs have said)

I have a four prong. (I’ll try to update with a pic when I have better lighting). I love it!! My Fiance chose it because it supposedly lets more light through and makes it sparkle more

I prefer a 6 prong ring. Not to say that a 4 prong isn’t nice too but I just think 4 prongs really square off the diamond, whereas the 6 gives it a nice round shape. It’s your personal preference, really.  Good luck making your decision! I’m sure it will be beautiful either way.

Here’s my 4 prong! Not sure if you classify it as a solitaire because of the pave, but it’s close enough!

Love the six prong look! Plus I just feel like my diamond is more secure, haha.

Daisylovex3:  Which one speaks to you? You can see a million rings, but you still need to figure out which setting will make your heart sing. No one can tell you that.
