    @aangel1004:  Yep.  I’ve got very tiny, thin fingers.  My ring is a size 5 because my knuckles are way bigger than the rest of my fingers.  I would probably have size 4 or so fingers if not for them.  I like the way half a carat looks on size 5 fingers.  If I ever upgrade, that’s probably what I’ll get.  🙂

    I like the look of 4 prongs personally.

    @aangel1004:  go for it then! .46 is really not that small.  ask a jeweler to show you two settings that would fit your stone, and see which one you like better. your decision might be influenced once you see it in real life.

    they might even be able to show you a sample ring that has a similar sized stone to yours.

    I feel like 4 prongs takes away from the “roundness” of the stone and sort of squares it off, which is why I prefer my six prong setting. It will be pretty no matter what you decide.

    6 prongs makes the stone look bigger and rounder.

    I prefer 4-prong. I have a 1.5 ct. oval cut in a 4-prong setting. It is very secure.

    When I had a .33ct solitaire it looked bigger and better and more secure with the 6 prong setting! So I vote 6!!

    @aangel1004:  in my opin

    ion (and experience) a 6 prong setting does the folowing: shows the real roundness of the stone (a 4prong does square it off) and makes the diamond look bigger IF the prongs are white. I have a 1 ct solitaire in a 6 prong tiffany setting and a 1 ct Signity in a 4 prong setting (my stunt double for horse shows, barn work, etc). The stones have similar table sizes and exact measurements. The diamond set in the 6 prong looks bigger and better than the signity (swarovski) set in the 4 prong.

    My diamond is a little bigger, but I prefer a 6-prong solitare for just about any size.  There are some gorgeous 4-prong settings, but for a simple solitaire nothing beats the way a 6-prong makes it look – in my opinion.  I like the way they look more round and can look bigger if done right.  (That’s yellow gold with a platinum head)

    I have a six prong ring, and it doesn’t overpower the ring at all! I honestly have no idea why people say it would — prongs are so small! Plus, more prongs help to secure a stone. I have a 1.25 ct, and feel like size prongs was absolutely the better choice. For a more secure setting and rounded look, it’s the way to go.

    Four prongs will showcase the diamond better, let more light in, and still keep the stone secure.

    @elle_z:  the prongs take up more proportion of the stone when the stone is smaller. They block it more… from the top and from the sides. The prongs stay the same size regardless of the stone size. If the stone can be secure in a more delicate setting, I think that showcases the diamond best.
