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.

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 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.
