I am currently waiting to be proposed to. We picked out the ring and I went with a round cut in a pave band but princess was a very close second. I am trying to decide if I made the right choice….. and I LOVE looking at rings.
Anyone with around a 1ct round or 1ct princess care to post pics or hand shots of your ring? I would really appreciate it and I am sure others would love to see your ring(s)!

Well technically we’re not engaged yet but I do have a picture of the ring on my finger. We picked it out together and it’s been “hiding” in our house for the last week, uggggh! Here is a pic of my Princess Cut solitaire- It’s a little bigger than a carat and my ring size is 4.25

My vote is for round! I know princess cut is very “in” and they are beautiful. But IMO nothings beats classic.

I have a princess cut and I love it. However, I do think that round diamonds appear larger than princess cut, just because of the shape (just in case that’s something that would affect your choice). Do you have pictures of the rings you’re looking at?

I have a five-stone ring, it has a 1 ct Princess cut center diamond and two smaller brilliant cut diamons on each side. I LOVE IT. I didn’t want to have anything to do with the ring and the selection, but he wanted to know what cut I was partial to, so I told him round or princess, but mostly princess. He incorporated the best of both worlds into the ring. Everybody’s a little different though- you can choose to be happy with anything!

I don’t have a picture of my ring on this computer but I have a round cut diamond that is just over 1ct and I LOVE it!
FYI – Round diamonds have more visible sparkle than princess cut stones and a 1ct round diamond will appear larger than a 1ct princess cut diamond, in case either of those things would effect your choice!

I have a round center stone with channel set princess cut diamonds, and I LOVE the classic look of the round stone! Plus, who doesn’t like a little extra sparkle? 🙂 I also don’t have a pic on this computer but I found an old thread where I had posted a pic of my ring (see Comment #3 on that thread)…the center round diamond is a 3/4 ct and the band is 2.9 mm wide, but it gives you an idea!

Thanks ladies for the input!
I originally went with the round because of the sparkle factor! And I have heard before that rounds do “face up” larger than princesses.
I will try to post a link to my ring… not sure if it will work.
Not the greatest representation… you can click on the shapes above the setting to get an idea of round/princess.

@Willow1991: I had a look and I like the round stone better than the princess…but again, I may be biased because I love round stones! Gorgeous ring!

I <3 round stones! Princess cuts are beautiful too but I feel that rounds are more classic and they do have more sparkle and face up bigger.

Thats a 1.4 ct princess cut total weight of 1.85 I believe…and I LOVE it! 🙂

My ering is round with square halo. My husband picked it out and I think he did a wonderful job! I guess he tried the setting with both types of stones and like the round better…but because of the setting it has a squarish appearance.
I personally like the round better. It just has such a beautiful sparkle! I think you made the right choice!
Sorry, these pics aren’t very good…but they give a general idea

I have a 1ct round cut e-ring with a pave band. I love it! I love the way that the round cut stone looks on my band.
