Based on what I’ve read… Round Brilliants are still the most popular / most sold shape for ERings … and if you hang out on WBee any amount of time, that does seem to hold true.

The BIG attraction to RBs are they are so sparkly because of their multiple facets… (hence the Brilliant designation in their name)

I have always liked “unique” jewellery pieces… so like yourself I am a fan of not so popular shapes (or settings)

My ERing is different from many others because of the setting (altho the Feature Diamond is a RB… mostly because Mr TTR is more traditional when it comes to ERings, and he was adamant that my ERing had to have a Feature Diamond … no complaints from me as I got the Setting I wanted)

BUT if I was to get myself a Diamond RHRing… I’d seriously consider a GOOD Quality Marquise, Pear or Oval.

I have a marquise—definitely not a popular shape. People either really like or really don’t. I love the unique shape!

@destinwed:  I don’t have a pear centre, but I have a three stone ring with pear sides. I loove them so much. I think it’s nice to have something a little different!

@destinwed:  I have a heart diamond! It’s a RHR because we had an heirloom stone but I 100% would have chosen this for my e-ring if we hadn’t!

I ADORE Marquise diamonds.

This is what I posted on another thread… “We were engaged in 1987 and all I told him was that I wanted a Marquise diamond. And that’s what I received… yay! Contrary to what I’ve read on this site, at least in my circle, Marquises weren’t that popular… I’m still the only one who ROCKS a Marquise… and that will never change!

We upgraded at 10 years but only the setting as the diamond was too perfect (in specs and sentiment). 

We celebrated our 25th in March and we upgraded. I scoured the internet to find the perfect ring. I really tried to want a different cut. I could not find a cut I loved more. So, I now have a larger Marquise in a beautiful setting and, when I look at it… it makes me as happy as I was when I was first engaged.”

Pear engagement rings make me totally weak in the knees, I think that they are just perfect. I do’nt have a pear engagement ring, but my anniversary ring is pear, she is awsome.

I think pears are beautiful!  Rounds are definitely the most popular, by far.  Princess cuts are the second most popular, but I personally know more people with the princess shape.  I have an oval.  I don’t know anyone, personally, that has one, but I would be excited if I saw someone else with one, lol.

@destinwed:  I have a pear! and I ADORE IT! I wouldnt change it BECAUSE my e-ring is sooo different then most i hang with…everyone has halos, and round and princess cuts with pave side stones or plain shank solitaires….mine is very much my personality and it has touches of us as a couple which i love….


PS: it was between a pear and a marquise center stone and i just adored the pear when i put it on
