If the claw prongs are done properly, by someone good at them (and not everyone is good at claws!) AND you get them checked regularly and tightened as needed they should not be snagging. This goes for double claws, 6-prongs, 4-prongs…claws are no more likely to snag than regular tab or rounded prongs. It is when they are loose (whether they are claws, tabs, regular rounded prongs) that they will snag and pull on things.

I generally prefer 6 prongs with round stones but it is personal preference. Double claws can give it a bit more of a cushioned shape from a distance, depending on how they are done, however, that is something some people are going for. A 2.5 carat Amora Gem is a larger stone and 6 prongs would give a bit of added protection from all sides, and emphasize the roundness of the stone from a distance.

ladyvintage:  I prefer the double claw prong for an oec! I used to have an oec moissanite in a double prong setting and I think it adds to the vintage look nicely.

I also vote tulip setting! This was hard, since tulip and double prong are both things I love and want in rings for myself. I love vintage rings, and my e ring is a repro. I don’t think that a tulip setting is too modern at all. I am actually thinking about having a smaller (around .5 ct) OEC diamond that I have in a different setting set into a tulip setting. The OEC cut is so flowery and the tulip sets it off so nice.

I am a size 5 with a 6 prong OEC diamond, it’s around 2.4 ct and my band is 2 mm. I think the six prongs help keep the round shape. Hopefully this helps give you an idea of what your ring will look like on you:)
