So last night my boyfriend and I were talking with my parents and the subject got on to ring shapes. My boyfriend and I have been looking at rings for a while now. I had never really considered a Marquise shape but after seeing how much he absolutely loves them… I have grown to love them too (I had never disliked them, just not considered it). So anyway, I mentioned that I like the Marquise shape and my parents were disgusted. haha. They said it was “so eighties”. Anyway… this is leads me to my question.. What are your favorite/ least favorite shapes and if you have any stigmas toward a particular shape than why? Feel free to post pictures of your rings too! I love looking at them.
Likes: Round, Marquise, Emerald
Dislikes: Heart, Princess, Asscher

Dislikes: Round (coming from a round owning woman lol), Heart, Princess, Marquise, Pear (just never like the prongs that come with all of those)
Not hating on anyone! Just a personal preference.

I don’t like hearts. I’m cool with almost any other shape, but my favorites were oval, emerald and cushion.

All in that order. 🙂

I love my oval- prob because it is just now becoming popular Again.. the eighties thing is right but all based on setting really…One jeweler told me the trend now is “unique” so people are now looking for more ovals, pear and marquise because they aren’t easily found in stores.

Ha my FI couldn’t care less about my e-ring shape. He says he likes that I picked a unique setting though 🙂
Favorite: Round, Cushion, Princess if it could safely be set diagonally like a diamond-shape, Oval
Least Favorite: Princess (I love the name but I’m not a square person lol), Heart (too overtly cheesy for me to want to wear everyday), Emerald (doesn’t seem sparkly enough to me)
And personally I’m not big on halos.

@soinlove79: That’s what I think, too. I don’t really care for marquise like they did it in the eighties with all of the enhancers and stuff. Same for Ovals, I love them… but the setting has to be just right.

@Korenne: Of course! It’s not the best picture, but I just tried taking some more on my phone and they weren’t any better. But our engagement shoot is coming up, so I’ll get some really good shots then!
EDIT: Oh my gosh I just realized the picture I’ve been sharing was a picture of the sample! This is my actual e-ring. They’re the same just I think the sample was sterling silver and a CZ.

My center diamond is a heart and I love my ring! I see though that most people don’t like them apparently!

I like most shapes as long as the setting compliments the stone. Ny ultimate favorites are old miner cuts, round, oval, emerald and princess. I also like bauguettes.

@ladyamalthea: beautiful! Love that band. I definately prefer detailing/scrolling instead of “band bling”. But that’s just me.
