    @blondemotives:  im normally not a fan of princess cut diamonds, but your ring is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a cushion cut, its 1.20cts, tct is 1.65 with the diamonds on the band. Here is a picture of my ring so you can get an idea of what a center 2ct cushion cut will look like

    Okay, so I have a princess cut and wasn’t sure what to go with.  Like you, I liked both a lot.  What I personally found was that cushion cuts appeared TO ME to be smaller.  We were looking at cushion cut diamonds.  When compared to the smaller princess cuts, cushions even when they were a larger carat size appeared smaller.  I’d stay with the princess if I were you but that’s just my opinion.

    Edit to add: I actually really like the distinct edges of my princess cut diamond but I can also appreciate that softness of cushions.  To me, cushions look so great in halo settings and definitely have that advantage over princess cuts.  Nothing wrong with either set in solitaire or halos but it just seems that the vast majority of cushions I see are set in halos.

    Id go cushion, I’m just not into princess cuts in general personally.  For reference… I’ve got a cushion, 1.04% ratio, 6.7×6.5m on a 5.75 finger (with .27 each half-moon sidestones.)  VVS1, G color, no flour, excellent symmetry and polish, very thick girtle.

    @blondemotives:  good choice! I much prefer princesses. Cushions don’t sparkle as much and look tiny. Your set is so pretty!
