    Round is the most beautiful!! I am however, a little biased because I have a round solitaire!

    At that size, I wouldn’t get anything other than round because it will look the biggest. If the stone size we’re talking about were bigger, I’d say emerald (if excluding round) or oval.

    I have a 1/2 carat princess cut solitaire and I LOVE IT! So obviously I would choose princess.They say princess cuts face up smaller but one of my coworkers has a 1/2 carat (that size is VERY popular where Im from) round solitaire with close to the same specs as mine and MINE actually looks a tiny bit larger!

    But my second pik would be a cushion cut.

    Brides magazine says you are better off doing and oval shaped diamond because it looks larger than a round with the same carat weight.

    My vote, oval. Ovals are amazing (not biased at all) second choice round, third cushion.

    I have a princess cut diamond solitare but its 1 carat. My fiance picked the ring out on his own, the only direction I gave was solitare in a princess, round, or asscher cut, quality diamond over quanitity. I would have been completely happy with a 1/2 carat, he just surprised me with a bigger stone that was high quality.

    If it was a 1/2 carat I would want the same shapes as above, and since I have a princess already, I would go for asscher than round.

    I really don’t like solitaires, but if I had to pick, I would say marquise.

    Sorry, round is the choice cut, especially for solitaries. Second choice princess I guess.

    My favorite (and what I have) is a cushion– but, for a half carat, it would certainly face up smaller than other cuts.  So maybe an oval.

    I like round, princess and cushion cuts for a solitaiTheta solitaire is classic and beautiful, so I say pick a classic shape as well. And if you ever choose to change your settings, these cuts have great options.
