    Cushion!!! 

     

    I wish mine was a little more elongated. But, I still love it so much.

    I have a princess cut diamond with a cushion halo. I do really love it but I had wanted a cushion diamond and a really petite halo. Now after being on the bee, I might have chosen an oval cut with halo. They are seriously gorgeous!

    I love both ovals and cushions and we were very close to getting a cushion for my replacement ring.  I prefered the way the cushions looked on me because I liked the more equilateral shape on my finger vs the elongated shapes.  In the end I went with another round.

    Part of the reason why I also shyed away from the oval was because all the ones we saw had a very noticible bow tie, which would drive me crazy.

    However, ovals face up bigger meaning you get more bang for your buck.

    I’m incredibly biased, but I love cushions! You really can’t go wrong with either one though. Both shapes are absolutely gorgeous.

    I have a round stone but, I love elongated stones…oval and marquise. If the cushion is elongated…I’d go for it.

    I have a cushion but my friend has an oval and I absolutely drool over it! I definitely agree with all the other bees on here when they say you can’t go wrong-I don’t wear much jewelry so I’m happy my ring actually has a little less finger coverage so I feel more comfortable wearing it. 

    Here’s mine from when he proposed after a 14 mile hike 😊

    oybsorc :  We did! It’s a glacial lake in the Trinity Alps (we live in San Francisco). He asked my friend (who backpacks) all the time) what a good hike would be and organized a huge surprise party the next day after we got back from camping. Of course I was super smelly and complaining about how bad I smelled while everyone was hiding up upstairs…

    Do you have any ideas when/where your proposal will happen??

    I absolutely, totally thought I’d be getting an oval with a pave halo.

     

    Ended up with a cushion! I just didn’t like the way the oval looked on my finger!

    oybsorc : 

    Mine is smaller than what you asked for, 1.02 cushion on a size 6 finger, but I loooove the shape! I like ovals too, but like a PP mentioned, I don’t like the bow-tie effect a lot of them have. Can’t go wrong with either of them though!

    oybsorc :  I prefer elongated shapes like ovals! I considered one, but fell in love with marquise cuts πŸ™‚

    oybsorc :  Thank you!!! I love that it’s very unique. It’s a fancy light yellowish brown diamond. We bought it from Diamonds by Lauren.
