I like the softer look of the prongs that you have.

I never really pay attention to the prongs so it doesn’t bother me. Congratulations!

I had to google what claw prongs were lol….. I think it’s toally up to you and based on if you’re willing to part with your ring again (although you are having it resized anyways). But I absolutely LOVE your ring as it is!

I think it looks lovely as is. I think with a soft shaft like an oval and softer shaped prongs look fab.

I am a bit prong-obsessed and was adamant about having claw prongs on my ring, so I can totally understand where you are coming from. If claw prongs are what you really want, I would go ahead and bring it up with the jeweler. It sounds like this was completely the jewelers fault, as your Fiance brought it up several times…so I can’t really see him having a problem changing it. It will probably be a relatively simple change, and if you are already having your ring resized, you might as well get the prongs taken care of at the same time. Your ring is stunning as is by the way!! But I do love me some claw prongs!

lilacandjune:  It looks very beautiful as it is so I wouldn’t change it, but if you want to, make sure that the jeweller is confident and comfortable with doing claw prongs. Their failure to execute your fiances request mat reflect a lack of confidence. I’d rather have the prongs you have and a secure stone than poorly executed claw prongs and an insurance claim.

I don’t think they knew what claw prongs are,  look like he try tho.  just tell him and bring a picture with you of prongs.  What I had to do for my jeweler to know what they look like.  Beautiful ring. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—

Just like frostfromfire, I too had to google prong difference. It just simply doesn’t seem like something you would worry about or dwell on for any length of time. When I look at rings, I definitely don’t stare at prongs. I agree with some above in saying the round with the oval does make for a softer look that looks great.

Your ring is gorgeous! The oval stone is just lovely. I am also prong obsessed and I adore sharp claw prongs.
