I don’t have a marquise, but my mom does, and she has the v-shaped prongs. Obviously I’m partial since I’ve seen her ring for years, but I think it looks nicer how the v hugs the shape of the diamond, and I would think that it probably protects the diamond more.

I dont have a marquise, but I just have to say that I prefer the look of regular prongs.

Here is my triple marquise sapphire =) Mommy gave me this one. She had had it for atleast 20+ years when she gave it to me. You can see they have the v prongs too, and are set in a sort of bezel like basket.

@LadySnow:  I don’t have them anymore because they were from an ex, but I had a regular pronged marquise diamond and an amythest marquise that was v-shaped.  I like the regular prong on a solitaire and the v shaped prong on rings with multiple stones like HelleCat’s multi-sapphire ring.  To me the regular prong sets off a single stone best but when there are several stones, the unbroken lines of the v shaped prongs frame the grouping out best.  IMHO

@LadySnow:  My E-Ring is exatly like your first photo.

I’ve had it 25 years and it’s still going strong. Granted, I don’t wear it much lately, but after the first couple of years I never had it checked for lose stone or tightened or anything.

My ring from my first marriage was a marquise. I had regular prongs, like your first photo.
