    I like the 4 prong better from the top and the 6 prong better from the side. I would probably get the 6 prong if you have a round diamond since it will feel more round in a 6 prong setting.

    I would do 6 because I like round stones to really look round and i think 4 prong settings always make it look more like a cushion cut. You might like the cushion cut more though so if that’s true you should go with the 4 prong.

    I like the 6 in both side and top view, its softer looking and 6 prong are known for being more secure. I have always loved the tulip prongs.

    I don’t dislike the 4 prong, but I really love the 6 prong.

    The 6 prong is similar to mine. My DH liked the 6 because it creates this illusion that the diamond is bigger 🙂 And people do always think my center stone is much larger than it really is.

    Love the 6 prong. Rounds in 4 prongs always look like to square to me – I visually connect the prongs.

    I like the 6 because it looks like a flower. But they are both beautiful..

    @bcem:  Normally I love four-prongs (I’m like you – I like round cuts and the four-prong gives the illusion of a cushion), but for some reason I’m really liking the six-prong. Does a wedding band sit flush with it? It looks like it sits high enough to accomodate a band. I’d love to know who makes that ring! It’s a really pretty setting.

    I love  the 6 prong… keeps it’s round shape and it’s really safe and guarded.
