Swimstuff: the basket will add additional security, at least I feel it does for my stone. Definitely go with the 4 since her hands are so small too! Congrats and good luck

2.01 carat in a 4 prong cathedral setting. I feel like it’s very secure

I have a 4 prong (cushion) with a basket type setting. Mine is super secure. If the stone wiggles, its too loose. Go with 14K and you shouldn’t have issues with prongs breaking.

I have 4 prong setting on an oval just under 2 ct set in 18K white gold. It’s secure though I do freak out about it sometimes. My only issue with my ring is that my setting is very high. I feel like a lower setting feels more secure.
