    I feel like 4 prongs are actually more noticeable because they distract from the round shape of the stone more than a 6 prong setting. The 4 prong settings that I’ve seen looked to have bigger prongs in general. I absolutely love my delicate 6 prongs. They’re barely visible unless I’m looking up close and it makes my diamond look like it’s floating. IMG_9920

    I used to have a 4 prong but I got it reset to 6 prong because I think it enhances the shape of the round stone better. It makes it look rounder and larger in my opinion. 

    Here is my before and after… I think it looks much better as a 6 prong.

    mo prongs, mo bettah! I have a round stone in a cushion cut, so I wanted to accentuate the square shape.  So I have eight prongs, technically.  The jeweler doubled up prongs on the four courners to make sure it stays secure.  Theyre dainty enough so it doesnt overwhelm the stone and allows plenty of light to come in, but ensures that if one prong gets bent, there’s a fail-safe in place to hold the diamond until I get to a jeweler haha.

    I am team 6-prong as well! Four prongs do make the stone look more square than round (to me). And six prongs are timeless.

    I prefer 6 prongs on rounds because, it’s more secure and looks great. I don’t like 4 prong cuz it seems so insecure…if one prong breaks or bends…you’re screwed. Also, I think 4 prongs on a round make it look like a cushion cut. Here’s my 6 prong round fb moissanite:

    babybearinhipss:  It’s slightly knife edge but not sharply. It is also wider than many of the tiny under 2mm thick bands that I see on here. I think it is around 2.2mm. You can kind of see the profile here:
