    I have a strong preference for round over princess, although I also like Marquise and pear cut stones. Have you considered having the princess stone set in a RHR? That’s something you could wear at all times in respect for your parents and your mum’s gift, but your ER would still be the stone your DH gave you.

    I prefer round over princess but I don’t have a good reason other than preferring the shape of a circle to the shape of a square!

    I have a hard time saying no to free things, especially things that are lovely and free… I would be more likely to purchase round than princess. I just think that I will poke myself with the pointed edges. I would certainly take one of sentimental value. I would prefer round, cushion, radiant, asscher, or anything without pointed edges. I would make the exception for a heart shape though! I think that I would take the diamond. Actually, you could have two sets. I know a woman who kept her old and new set, and would swap them out as she saw fit. Best of luck to you! Congrats on the 5th anniversary!

    I also perfer rounds because princessy just looks like itll scratch! And I just like the shape better and then way it makes the diamonds sparkle!

    What if you put your mom’s diamond into a pendant to wear on a necklace?

    I voted princess because I am one, dang it!!

    seriously, princess looks best on my very short finger.  BF agreed once he saw a round on my finger.  Made it look more like a toe 😉

    mrstattoo10816:  You should take your mom’s P cut diamond, find a matching pair of smaller princess cut stones and make a “past, present and future” RHR! I know you say you’re not a jewelry person, but maybe having such a lovely and sentimental piece could change that? You could even use gemstones as sidestones, like whatever the “birthstone” is for the month you were married? 

    I really love the round diamond in your ering, I am a princess cut fan, but I think a round really suits your setting.
