Let's now talk about a prong setting of a design. Tiffany settings were designed back in the 1800s by the company Tiffany. They wanted to create something that would genuinely give the stones the best look when the light hits the top of the diamond or gemstone.

That's when they designed the 6-prong approach that would make the ring a lot stronger compared to a 4-prong setting approach that if caught on something. The diamond could fall out easier, as having the 6 prongs would hold it tighter to keep it in place and give you time to take it to your nearest jeweler.
