I realize what is bothering me about this ring. There are too many prongs and I think it is overpowering the stone. I am going to ask my jeweler but wanted input here first. If the stone is held securely by the other 4 prongs could I safely have the two middle prongs removed? I think it would look much better. My blue sapphire ring also in a Stuller setting is very similar and is being held by 4 prongs no problem.
