Mine is a 6 prong Tiffany style setting. I think it’s .75 carat. Sorry that the straight on picture isn’t of the ring by itself. It is the only one I have on my new phone where the lighting is good. I originally wanted a cathedral style setting, but I’m so glad he picked this one. I wouldn’t change anything about it.

nowmarriedgirl : Haha, awwww, you’ve got a tough decision to make! I (obviously) can’t tell you what you’d prefer, but I can give you my own opinions and hope it’s somewhat helpful! 🙂
I love the look of a 6 prong over the squarish/cushion look of a 4 prong just because I prefer the shape. I also prefer the prongs to be claw prongs that blend in with the stone so as to almost make it appear as if the ring is floating. (I think David Klass did a great job on the ring below when he re-did the prongs; that look is my favorite)
I also would absolutely go with a smaller stone that is higher quality. I enjoy a bit of warmth in diamonds so I prefer to go lower on color to save money and primarily look at the cut as that’s what’s going to make it sparkle. Going to Pricescope and asking for some help in the RockyTalky forum once you are ready to buy will get you a lot of help and answers; I highly recommend it.
As far as clarity goes, I would make sure the clarity does not have any inclusions close to the girdle that could negatively impact the integrity of the stone nor have any inclusions that will have an effect on the brilliance. If all that was in the clear, I’d go down to an SI1 or even an eye clean SI2 (although those are much harder to find!)
Here’s my .76 ct K, VS1 OEC diamond solitaire–it’s vintage and by the wheat designs on the shank & its style, jewelers have said it is probably from the Art Nouveau period. I personally love the older cuts, so I would also recommend shopping for vintage solitaires–you can get a great price for a beautiful piece! Good luck & happy shopping! 🙂

Solitaires are the way to go! Mine is just over 2 carats in a 1.8mm Danhov setting on 4.5 finger. They’re timeless and there are so many ways to still make them unique.
