I did not know what claw prongs were either..but after reading this post noe know. Btw I really think claw prongs were what u wanted. And I think they look edgy and sharp! I would do it CLAW PRONG FOR SURE!

lilacandjune:  Our rings are identical except…I have claw prongs.  I, like you, was very particular about having claw prongs as opposed to round prongs so I understand.  I think the reason I don’t like round prongs is that every clunky costume ring has round prongs…so claw prongs just always seemed more delicate and pretty.

It’s a matter of personal taste for certain but I’m with you. I think the claw prongs are more delicate, look better with the delicate band and detract less from the stone. When I saw your ring the first thing my eye was drawn to were the round gold dots on the side of the stone, then the stone itself. It’s distracting.

lilacandjune:  I think you should get exactly what you want, it’s your forever ring.  Do it.  IMO, 4 prongs are lovely but they aren’t as secure as a 6 prong setting nor a 4 claw prong setting.  I almost lost my diamond after a few years of wearing it daily.  1 of the 4 prongs was “worn” out and weaken; which compromised the setting.  I upgraded to a 6 prong setting, now I wish that I when with the claw prong, they look so elegant. Go for it & get it

I’m not a big fan of claw prongs, and I think the round prongs complement your oval stone perfectly. If there was some sort of charge for claw prongs that you paid for and didn’t receive them, I would totally bring that up though.
