I think the new prongs are bulky and take away from the overall look of the ring.

I’m not sure if you should have to make a trade off between aesthetics and functionality though.

Did the jeweler say that’s the only option to keep from losing the pave diamonds?

I have pave diamonds on the undergallery of my halo head and the profile of my shank and I’ve had no issues.

katielew1:  yea prongs are bigger but with a 2ct you probably need it Especially with the diamond becoming loose. I don’t even know how it held up in the first one those things are small. It would really suck if you lost your diamond.  I say just leave it or find a different setting to support the 2ct diamond.

katielew1:  what about changing it to a 6 prong, then the prongs don’t have to be so large?

They do look rather big. I would personally have it changed somehow.

I second the 6 prong suggestion.

Wow those are some large prongs.  I don’t think I have ever seen prongs that large on a ring, tbh.  I find it difficult to believe that was the only option to keep a 2ct center stone secure and am shocked that the jeweler recommended that.  I’d consider getting the opinion of another jeweler.  The 6 prong suggestion is also a great idea.

eta: I re-read and see it was Verragio not the jeweler…

I like how it looked before, so I also suggest the 6 prong solution.

I agree with PPs, go with 6 prongs.

So the pave on the actual prongs is what keeps falling out? Honestly, I’d rather lose the pave on the prongs than have prongs that bulky. I also think the 6 prong idea is a good one too!

I think the base of the prongs need to be thicker, but they should be able to thin and claw the part that goes on top of your stone.  And it you went with double claw prongs, it would stll be delicate, but offer more security.

sorry, but honestly I don’t like how the new prongs look at all.  I think it really takes away from your diamond.  If I was you I would just have a new head put on without the pave stones on it. That’s just me though.

Just an example…  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WjE2KZ6NJM

The prongs are sturdy on the base and hold pave securely, but are delicate on top.  I went for a longer claws, because I like that, but they could be shorter still!  You just need a good goldsmith.  😉

some perspective for size.  And the stone is 4ct
