hi all – my fiance proposed with the ring we picked out together. we had a hard time choosing between four prong and 6 prong, because the only option we saw was the 4 prong. i like the ring and will be getting a second ring, a rose gold plain solitaire 6 prong, but for this ring – i wonder if i should have gotten 6 prong too? i don’t think it could be changed, but i could always resell it and get a different one. we are practically already married and not sentimental about physical things. i am a dreamy kind of person, i like a princessy kind of look. but i’m also awfully, annoyingly indecisive and i keep on looking at this ring and wondering if i should have gotten 6 prong. i have attached pics of the real 4 prong ring, it’s 1.5 carat moissy, and the fake tester cz ring, which is about 1.8 carats (too big for my hand) and the band is slightly diffrent, but similar to the real ering, and has 6 prongs. originally we bought the 4 prong bc we thought the 6 prong might be too busy with the scalloped milgrain band, but now i’m not sure. what do you think? dont worry, you won’t make me feel bad if you think 6 prong is better. also i wonder if it would make a difference stylistically for when i choose a wedding band…

Honestly, I like the 6 prong better but it wouldn’t be a big enough deal to me to go through the trouble of changing it.

I definitely like the 4 prong betterment the 6 prong is entirely too busy.

I love the 6-prong look! Of course it’s your ring so you do what you think will make you happiest!

I prefer six but don’t think it makes a huge difference.

I actually like the 4 prong better, which surprised me because I’m typically a fan of 6 prongs. And yes sometimes a 6 prong can make it harder to find a wedding band that sits flush but this can happen with 4 prongs too depending on the base design. There’s advantages to having 4 prongs as well as having 6 prongs. With 4 prongs you can see more of the stone and are more likely to find a flush fit wedding band. With 6 prongs it will make the stone appear larger, and will secure the stone better. So you just need to decide what is more important to you.

I strongly prefer the 4-prong. I agree with your intial thought that the 6 prongs would be too busy with that setting.

Your ring is perfect. I dislike prongs in general, so 4 is much better than 6, IMO. Too many prongs look busy and dated. Keep what you’ve got.

I love 4 prongs in general and I love it in your case too but only you can truly decide, trust your gut

4 prong! Also, why two engagement rings? Am I misunderstanding something?

I prefer the 4 prong. The 6 prong takes away from the beauty of the stone.
