    I always prefer 6 prongs for a round stone. I think 4 prongs square the shape of the stone, wheheas the six prongs maintain the roundness.

    mrstattoo10816:  I agree with PP, I have a round diamond with 4 prongs and the 4 prongs make the diamond look squared.

    I guess it doesn’t look so square up close, but from farther away (like right now typing LOL)

    I have 4 prongs. As PPs have said it can make a Ring Bearer look square. But it depends where they are placed. Mine are at the sides rather than the corners (if that makes any sense!) which stops it from looking square.

    I have a 0.7 center stone with four prongs.  It’s true that it can make it look a little square-ish.  I don’t mind whatsoever though.  I do think 6 prongs can make the diamond look a little smaller in comparison – there’s so much metal relative to the diamond’s surface area.

    Here’s mine.  Sorry about the giant collage, can’t find an individual ring pic since WB decided to delete all our pics…)

    I have a .72 Round Brilliant. I have 6 prongs I like its better than 4 because it does look a little boxy. Plus I’m kind of a cluts so 6 prongs offers some extra security.

    Edit: my only con is more little “nooks” to clean. but I found a pointed Q-Tip works wonders!

    I have a 6 prong on a round diamond and I absolutely love it. I do think 4 prongs can *sometimes* make round diamonds look a little square, but it often depends on the placement and the size of the prongs. I prefer a more delicate prong and 6 prongs to me showcases the diamond’s roundness and also makes it seem extra secure in the setting.

    Here’s mine just because I love it 🙂

    I LOVE the look of prongs. As many as will fit, I say!

    mrstattoo10816:  I have a 0.75 ct diamond set in a 4 prong white gold setting, but I don’t particularly care for the 4 prong.  There is nothing special about it.  I will be changing mine to a 6 prong rose gold solitaire.  Here is how it currently looks

    I say 6 for added security.

    lolot:  pretty a ring! a little like mine but with more detailing, although in my case it did have the 6 prongs, I think I didn’t think much about it at the time, but I guess it maintain the round look. My ring is .76 ct 6 prong.
