i just posted this, then realized i had written headline wrong, edited the headline, and the site marked my post as spam and got rid of the whole post, so i am reposting. i saw two of you responded before the topic deleted, one liked 4, one liked 6, thanks for responding!
here’s the post: my real ering came and i like it – my fiance and i had chosen the 4 prong bc it’s the only one shown on the website. but i have a tester ring similar to the one we bought and it has 6 prong and i wonder if the real ring would be prettier with 6 prongs. i like a princessy feminine look in general. originally we imagined it might be too busy with 6 prongs bc it’s a scalloped milgrain band, but i’m not sure. what do you think, should i exchange it for a 6 prong ring? first pic is real e ring moissy, 1.5 carat, 2nd ring is almost 2 carat (too big for my hand) cz tester ring but similar band as real one (not exactly same) and 6 prongs. what do you think? we are not sentimental about ring and it’s moissy so exchanging won’t break the bank. i’n getting a second rose gold set plain band with 6 prongs but wonder about this one…don’t worry you won’t hurt my feelings if you say 6 prongs. i also wonder if having 4 prongs will make it easier to match with a wedding band…maybe you all with experience know more than i do about these things as i am newly engaged!

I love how it looks with 6 prongs! Although I may be biased because my ring has 6 prongs 🤗 Go with whatever you like and what makes you feel good! My ring sits a little higher though, so any band I use will sit flush. I’m not sure if having a gap would possibly bother you?

I like the 4-prong. We are trending back toward 4 these days after a decade or so of 6 prongs so it fits right in!

reginabee : I am a big fan of 6 prongs over 4, because in my personal opinion (don’t want to offend anyone here) I find that 4 prongs make the round stone look square, and I don’t like that. I have said to my Boyfriend or Best Friend, if he remembers one thing it’s 6 prongs over 4. Bless him, he keeps calling them clasps but at least he seems to remember this fact!

I like how your ring looks now with 4 prongs.
Post # 6
reginabee : I love 6 prong solitaires…but you don’t have a solitaire. I feel like the 6 prong just looks like too much is going on and takes away from the rest of the design in the shank. Keep the 4. Plus, 4 let’s more light I to your stone so you’ll get more sparkle.

I love 4 prongs but I’m biased as that’s what I have!! I like that it squares off the stone ever so slightly and did find 6 prongs a bit busy, but that’s just my personal opinion. I love your ring as it is!!

I like the 4 prongs, but partial to that because that’s what my ring is! I think the 6-prong looks a little more busy and detracts more from the stone.

You might want the 6 just incase one gets lose. Fiance had my ring redone to put 6 prongs on it. He was worried if one prong came loose on the 4 then I could possibly lose the center stone.

I like the six, but am biased as I have a 6 prong solitare oval. I always thought I wanted 4, but am so hard on my hands that the extra ones make me feel safer.
I agree thinking that 4 on a round makes it look too square!

I prefer the look and added protection of 6 or even 8 prongs for rounds. It rounds out the stone, and aesthetically I just prefer them over 4 prongs. Just my opinion tho 🙂

I actually prefer the 4 prong

I prefer the 4-prong, both on your ring and in general. Very pretty either way though!

I like the 6 prong better… but like pps have said, I dislike the look of 4 prongs on a round stone. I like the roundness of 6, plus it reminds me of a crown or a snowflake or something 🙃
I don’t think it would make your ring look too busy.
