I almost never use prongs to set stones, but this one kinda begged for it. Cushion-cut London blue topaz spoon pendant :)

Wow! I love the stone and the prong setting was a definite surprise! :D

i secretly hate prong settings, because they're structurally weak and tend to get caught on clothing... which is why i rarely use them.. but... they're pretty and people LOVE them. sigh. :D

I actually prefer bezels and stepped bezels. My prongs get caught on everything and I've snapped a gold prong on a brand new ring... nearly lost the stone. :( One day I'm going to set that stone in a pretty bezel myself. People like prongs for light play but I agree...flimsy wire vs. a nice bezel? I'll take the bezel. :D

exactly. i've seen 18k gold and even platinum prongs break. i don't think i've ever seen a broken bezel. as long as the stones are set properly, they basically don't fail... whereas even the best prongs will need to be re-tipped eventually.

i just wish john q public knew that :D stupid diamond stores, spreading their lies.

the prongs on my 20+ year old wedding ring are ....sharpening or something. I notice them now where I didn't used to notice them.
