Anyone regret their stone shape choice?

I knew since I was little that I wanted an emerald cut, just like Grace Kelly and Liz Taylor!  It was appealing to me, my mother always knew that and it’s what Mr. 99 was advised to get…which he did!  We all have something we’re attracted to, don’t let anything else influence you, you know what you want!

My husband chose a classic round solitaire for the same reasons your boyfriend gave. I love, love, LOVE it!!! I have never regretted it for a second.

Kind of, I have no idea what I have. A square. 

I dislike that the size of it is burried in the depth and not the surface area of the top. I never realized how different the carat sized looked different in different stones.

I love my round more than anything and would die if I had to have something else!

In my opinion you wont regret getting the round then get a nice RHR in radiant :)

I didn’t choose my ring, so I can’t really say it’s “regret”, but DH picked on his own with very little guidance, besides that I don’t like princess cuts.  Annnnnd somehow “princess cut” was the only thing that stuck in his mind, and he didn’t remember that it was NOT princess cut. 

So, I have that… love that he gave it to me, but I wish I’d gotten a round, oval or emerald.

I always loved cushions- long before they were popular– but felt I needed to give FI some sort of control over the ring (I picked the setting and the 4cs). I let him choose between round or cushion. He chose round and I ended up being so glad I had the classic stone. It is timeless and is what he always imagined buying his future wife. I think you can’t go wrong, but a round will face up bigger (if it matters)

I have always wanted a princess cut and that is what I got…and i am super happy with it still. While I was looking at rings I changed my mind about 100 times. I am so not kidding, I wanted every stone shape out there at least once during our search for the ring. I also wanted at least 100 different types of settings, like a three stone, then a solitaire, then this then that..the list goes on and on..but I ended up picking the ring that I have always and originally wanted, and I couldn’t be happier with it=)

if you are torn between choosing a round or some other cut, I’d say go for the round. it’s classic.

I have a three stone ring with all classic round. I SLIGHTLY wish I had gone with either a cushion center stone or all cushions (I just think they are extra sparkly), but MOSTLY I love love love my round diamonds and it is what I have always envisioned for my ring.

I have an asscher and have never regretted it. Sometimes I wish I had a pave band instead of a solitaire, but I know I would wear it less and worry about it more with the extra diamonds. I assume in 10, 20, 30 ect years I will still love it, but I’m only had it for a year so only time will tell. If you’re worried about falling out of love with it I would get something very classic (round, solitaire, simple 3 stone [which I dislike but they're still classic], solitaire with small sidestones).

I always wanted a round… but apparently I didn’t pay enough attention to exactly what the round brilliant cut looked like. The little perfect octagon shape on the top/flat part of the stone kinda bothers me for some reason.

But, I don’t regret it per se. I love my ring and all the work that DH did to make it perfect!
