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 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.

reginabee :  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.

Four is much better.

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.
