I like the look of a round personally, I think it’s simple and so classic.

Those are such different looks that you just need to decide which you like more.  I personally dont like the sharp points of a princess or emerald cut.  It’d be round or cushion for me anyday.

Have you tried them both on? You may find that 1 looks better on you than the other.

Have you considered what kind of wedding band you might like? See how it would look with both. 

If you truely like them equally… then tell your guy to surprise you!

I like round.  It’s more versatile and it sparkles the most of any shape!

deee9:  I have a princess cut and it does get caught on things from time to time. However, one of my friends has a round and her prongs get caught on things just as much as mine do.  I was like you, I loved both round and princess. We didn’t ring shop together at all but he knew I wanted a super classic solitaire. He said he looked at cushions, princess, and round and he ended up with a princess because he said he was drawn to it the most. If you don’t have a preference have you considered asking your SO what his eye is drawn to and having him pick and surprise you? I absolutely love that he listened to what I wanted but the ring is a bit of him too!

deee9: I vote round — princesses can be more prone to chipping as well. It all depends on the cut + setting. 

Round doesn’t snag because it’s… round. If prongs are snagging on clothes, that’s a prong issue, not a diamond issue. 

If your prongs are snagging, you should get them checked ASAP. Loose prongs can lead to lost diamonds.

Assuming that the prices of the diamonds are on-par, I would choose the higher quality diamond if you are not necessarily concerned with its shape.  The prongs on your GFs ring are what’s causing pulls in her sweaters. Do you have the specifications for each of the stones?  I’m sure we could debate the four c’s for quite a few days…

deee9:  I can’t imagine that the actual cut of the diamond would snag on clothing.  Even though there is are points on a princess cut, there’s no edges to acutally snag.  Snagging can happen with any ring, round or square, and is due more to how well the stone is set and how well made the prongs are.

I strongly prefer round, especially in a classic solitaire.  🙂  But, you need to go with the shape you prefer.

I’d go with round – it’s the classic shape and if you care about value – rounds are worth more than any other cut.
