well, i’m a bit biased… #teamoval fwiw, ovals face up bigger than cushions – an oval in the same carat size will look bigger (by about 18% for a 1ct)IMG_8219

mariannemm:  Defintely try both on if you haven’t already. I wanted a cushion for awhile, but when i tried one on, it wasn’t for me (though I love them on others).

I have a rounded cushion cut! I’m in love with the unique shape. Personally, I find the facets of a cushion cut more interesting than an oval cut — but it’s really up to you! They’re both beautiful!

I love my oval, but they are both beautiful shapes.

I agree with PP – oval if diamond, cushion if moissy.

To the people that voted said if it were a moissy get a cushion not an oval, what’s your reasoning? I want to get a 4×6 or 5×7 f1 oval but it sounds like it’s not the best option. I’m fine with it showing more color coz i want an f1 and don’t mind it not looking like a diamond, as long as it looks beautiful in its own right.  But if there’s something funky about the cut then I’m not so sure…

I LOVE my cushion cut, but i also have an oval sapphire that I wear on special occasions on my right hand.

try both on! I thought I wanted a cushion for YEARS but it ended up not suiting my hand, so I got a round and found that oval looks even better. See which suits your hand best:)
