Mine is almost 1.2 as well, and I have 6 prongs. I only like 4 prongs with princess cut solitares. At the time I purchased the ring, I didn’t even think about it though. My wedding band has 5 round diamonds in a 4 prong setting, and at the time I didn’t even realize it. All I do know is I feel my e-ring is more secure in a 6.

@MrsDrRose612: I love the look of a four prong cuz you get a round look with square features as well…but I’ve seen some truly fab six prongs too. This is my Ering four prong solitaire diamond

I have a 4 prong. Fiance didn’t want anything taking away from the diamond. He felt the 6 prong was too much around it, so he choose the 4.

It’s all personal preference. I loved an 8 prong ring (photo 1, below). But to be totally honest, getting a diamond that could stand up to, rather than be overwhelmed by, 8 prongs was just more than we were interested in spending. So I designed a ring that incorporated 6 prongs (photo 2, below).

I’m looking at an 8-prong Tacori right now, so I might be biased, but I really love the look of 6 prongs. I get nervous about a diamond set in just 4 prongs and would be too freaked about it getting damaged or falling out. Plus I really like the sculpted/basket or flower petal look you can get with 6 prongs.
I’d say go with what looks best to you.

I have a 4 prong on a round diamond. I like how the 6 prong accentuates a round diamond but I also like being able to see more of the diamond from the side.

I personally like 6 prongs on round stones. 4 prongs can make it look square, and I like the added security of the extra prongs.

The jeweler showed me the ring in 4 prongs and 6, and I liked the 4 prong much better. Mine doesn’t look square – it’s like the picture pinkshoes posted.
