Hello there, my first post.. I’ve been drooling for solitaires with my half alliance ring, and I want definitely 6 prongs, but which one looks best in your opinion? I like them both but can’t decide. Some serious issue here I’m having it custom made, so pics are just an example, look just the prongs only And if it matters, band will be white gold and tapered.
Which one do you prefer, and why?

I like option A, because you would be able to see the diamond from the side rather than a prong right in the centre. I think all 6 prongs should change to this as the default style so you get to admire your diamond from all angles 🙂

I like option B although I’m slightly bias as it looks like mine

B catches my eye a bit more!

Option B. It’s the classic Tiffany style!

I like A because it seems to sit a little lower in the band, but I like the roundness of the prongs in B better. I think option A would look really good with claw prongs, imo

I’m so glad you posted this. I’ve been looking at six pronged solitaires too, but the positioning of the prongs didn’t even enter my mind! Now that i’ve been made to think about it I definitely prefer the look of option B.

I prefer B. My 6 prong is this style and I really love how it makes the roundness of the stone pop. I also recommend claw prongs as PP said above. They are beautiful!

I prefer A. I don’t like the prongs right in the middle on the top and bottom of the diamond.

Option B. That’s how the prongs on my ring are positioned 🙂

I prefer option B, but then again I am biased as this is the way my prongs are set up for my solitaire.
