which prong do you guys prefer?
How small would be considered small? At what point does the stone qualify as large enough for 6 prongs?Date: 2/19/2009 11:39:05 PM

4 prongs for smaller stones, 6 prongs for larger. I like looking at the stone from the side, so I really prefer half bezels to prongs.
If the prongs are made of platinum I am sure the diamond will be extremely secure. Above it says that 4 prongs are thicker so it will be as secure as a 6 prong.Date: 2/20/2009 12:01:29 AM
I am about to have 1 of each. I have a 6 prong on my .52 and it ''crowds'' the diamond, IMO. My upgrade is going to be 4 prong. I do like that it makes the diamond look bigger, and I like the slight contrast of it looking a bit squarish.
I do have a slight worry factor about a prong breaking off, but I suppose that is what insurance is for.
