    I like the double because it actually protects the corners. The single prongs leave 8 tiny corners exposed (even though its very unlikely anything would happen!).

    kd1025 :  Double! Because they look stunning, and also because Leon does the most amazing, delicate double-claw prongs.

    I vote double as well! I’m clearly biased, though — here’s my asscher with double claw prongs:

    Double!!  I’m very biased as I have double prongs on my antique cushion. But they are so gorgeous and add visual interest to my ring. Go for it!

    I voted double as well. I think the double looks more elegant. Good luck!

    Oh, most definitely double. Even if it is just to protect it, but… 

    I had my head replaced pretty quickly after I got the ring because of the single prongs, I knocked the stone out on my bedside table while making the bed. Thank God it was at home. 

    I love the ring more, now, with the double prongs and my fear has been eased, a bit.

    I prefer single prongs but I can see why double ones are more popular. The corners would have a better protection. I guess it comes down to what you like most and how practical it is. Also keep in mind that claw prongs tend to catch stuff on (such as clothes) so the more you have, the more chances it will happen (so if you wear delicate fabrics it might not be your best choice).

    I think the single prongs look so sleek and modern!
