    this is really cool/pretty! I think an oval would look great.

    I would put an OEC in there. But I’d put an OEC in practically any setting. :p

    I think it’s vintagey enough to pull off an oec but the shape of the details would look good with an oval. I wouldn’t put a radiant of cushion in there because of all the round shapes in the setting.

    I think an emerald cut would look amazing in there too.

    @taterjuice:  I really like that setting! I have a filgree ring too. For that setting style and your ring size, I would say go with an Old Mine Cut. In an ideal world, I suggest 2 carats or so, but do whatever works with your budget!

    ETA: I went back to the top and now see that OMC isn’t an option. I don’t know if that’s because you’re not familiar or because you like them less. If that’s the case I’d go OEC.

    @taterjuice:  Oh! That setting is SPECTACULAR!!! It’s amazing almost beyond words.

    I didn’t vote in the poll because I couldn’t make up my mind. I love round brilliants so much. They are probably my favorite cut, even though I know “everyone” has them. I think one would be gorgeous in this setting.

    But I think an oval might be even better. A stone with a little more length on it might have the right presence to coordinate perfectlly with that amazing setting.
