    LLMMCC:  i have a cushion cut. But if i had to pick from these two, i would pick round bc with the oval i would probably have to get a curved band and i hate those

    I have an oval halo and I love it!  There is plenty of room underneath for a straight band. I too am not a fan of curved bands but I can choose whatever style I want when the time comes as there’s enough clearance.  I’m hoping for another carat of diamonds … (a girl can dream).

    LLMMCC:  My oval halo has a straight matching diamond band ready to go when we get married. It’s a fairly standard setting and there’s more than enough room under the halo to have a straight band.  I had it designed that way because I didn’t want a curved band, as I will probably be wearing just my wedding band quite a lot due to my work situation.

    Round is the most popular diamond shape.  But I would choose the oval because I think they look more elegant, a little different, and because of the halo – I like the sparkle factor.

    I’m not a fan of ovals, or halos, so definitely round for me.

    LLMMCC:  oval is my next favorite after marquise. You can always have the band you want with a ring as long as you work with a jeweler designing both. ovals also generallt look bigger than round, especially if you get one that faces up large.

    LLMMCC:  Personally, I find rounds to be a little boring, so I vote oval halo because I think they are soo pretty.  Agree that you can set it high enough to get a straight band underneath.

    I love both, however, I prefer round solitaire because to me, it says traditional, classic, timeless. Also, I love that it can be dressed up or down. Oval halo is my second fav., and is what I originally wanted. However, I thought it looked too dressy for every day wear and was worried about losing diamonds. I’m a simple, plain Jane kinda girl, so I solitaire fits my personality more. I suggest trying them on. Also, I have long, thin fingers size 5.5 so I thought the elongated shape made my fingers look too long, while the round balanced out the length. Also, with ovals I was very particular with shape and minimum bow tie, and it was just simpler to pick a round. Lastly, when I was going through the phase of looking for rings, I had my heart set on oval halo and when my Bf told me if it was up to him, he’d have got me a round solitaire, and really disliked oval. After hearing him say that, I completely changed what I wanted, lol. Anyways, I’m still waiting…argh! Can’t wait to rock a sparkly. Pun intended! Also, due post pics when you get it and story..good luck!
