What cut do you prefer and why?
Please do include specs if you have them, the shape stone and of course ring porn.
Mine is a cushion cut radiant. I ordered 2 stones on-line. One was flat and lifeless while the other was what I ended up with. My designer was impressed over the cut. Its only after I wore the ring for awhile that I truly appreciated all of the facets and sparkle.

I really love all stones that are cut well no matter what shape as long as the clarity and color are appealing as well. I would probably put round brilliant cuts and princess cuts at the bottom for rings (love them in earrings) because I prefer more unusual cuts, especially in engagement rings. That is not to say that I wouldn’t love to wear a round brilliant or princess (I have both) I just prefer shapes that are a bit less common.

@chica95110: like how you added the polish! LOL. what are the spec’s on your stone? Nice!
I prefer round brilliants for their brilliance!. However I think pears are beautiful too!

I prefer a round brilliant cut because I’ve never seen anything with quite as much fire. I don’t like the sharp corners of princesses but a cushion intrigues me. Asschers and emeralds are pretty but I’m not sure how I feel about the step cuts. So not to say that I wouldn’t buy any other shaped diamonds but round is my favorite!
Mine is my mother’s diamond – 1.09, J, ideal cut, VS2 with a strong blue florescence.

My favorites in order are solasfera (some day! *daydreams* basically they’re a round with 10 arrows instead of classic 8), round brilliant, oval.
