Top 6 Prong Oval Engagement Rings
Looking for a standalone stunner of a diamond? Six-prong oval engagement rings offer a twist on the classic solitaire diamond, perfect for impressing a unique bride. The six prongs provide extra security for your diamond, allowing her engagement ring to last the lifetime that it should.
Ensure her ring stands out, without being too over-the-top, with these top six-prong oval engagement rings from With Clarity! But first, here’s what to look for in the perfect six-prong oval engagement ring.
The Pros and Cons of 6 Prong Engagement Rings
The more prongs, the merrier! Six prongs maximize the security of your diamond. Meaning if one prong becomes damaged with wear, the other five will still keep your diamond safe. A standard four-prong engagement ring does not have this distinctive feature.
Better yet, the six prongs can emphasize the shape of your oval diamond. Six prongs can draw subtle attention to the unique style of your solitaire ring.
You may worry that more prongs mean more light blockage. However, since the prongs are so small, they shouldn’t impact the sparkle of your diamond. Visually, you should not notice a difference at all.
How to Maximize Brilliance on Your 6 Prong Oval Diamond Ring
When it comes to engagement rings, we all know the importance of sparkle, shimmer, and shine! To maximize the brilliance of your six-prong oval diamond, pay attention to the quality of your stone.
Go for a GIA or IGI Triple Excellence diamond, with an exceptional rating on cut, symmetry, and polish. An exceptional grading on cut, symmetry, and polish lets optimal light bounce off your diamond. Specifically, choosing a Triple-X diamond will also ensure you avoid the dreaded diamond bow tie effect. The diamond bow tie effect can occur when light doesn’t refract as beautifully as possible.
When choosing an oval stone, take care not to compromise on color, either. While you might do so with a round diamond, oval diamonds will show body color more on the ends, meaning any imperfections could become more noticeable to your bride.
