A six-prong engagement ring features six prongs that extend up from the band to support the center stone.
Are prongs the only type of setting?
No. When you don't want a prong-style engagement ring, you can opt for a channel-set engagement ring or a bezel-set engagement ring instead.
What diamond shapes are suitable for a six-prong setting?
The versatility of a six-prong diamond engagement ring setting makes it a suitable choice for many different diamond shapes, including round, oval, heart, pear, and more.
Are 6-prong engagement ring settings better than 4-prong settings?
Each style offers its own benefits, but overall, six-prong settings provide a more secure hold on the center diamond than a four-prong setting. If a prong is damaged in a four-prong setting, the diamond may become loose or fall out. If a prong is damaged in a six-prong setting, it's less likely that the diamond will be lost.
