That depends.. do you like the crushed ice look or the step cut look?  very different.. but oh so gorgeous either way.  If you’re dead set on a halo-consider the radiant.  E-cuts are best on their own, they don’t need supporting accresses stealing the spotlight IMO.

I’m getting a radiant cut (albeit a square one with no halo) so that’s my vote, but honestly, you can’t go wrong either way. I’d suggest trying both on though if you haven’t! I love love love emerald cuts in photos and on others but hated them on my own hand in real life.

I looove my emerald cut diamond, but I know they aren’t for everyone. This one is 1.4 ct, J color, VS1. The two baguettes are 0.19 ct each. I wear a size 6 ring.

My vote would be for an emerald in a halo, but that’s just because it’s what I have! Lol. I know a couple other bees are ring twins, and I love my ring.

I prefer the EC halo but I’m partial.

Mine is 1.26 ct D/VVS1 with .78 TCW D/E VVS diamonds in the halo…

I really like the emerald with the halo because you get a clear visual distinction between the center stone and the halo stones. But the radiant + halo is like a big pretty sparkle bomb, as the stones blend together more. It depends what you’re going for!

(Sorry I don’t have any pictures. I just like this thread! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

I have an emerald cut (and LOVE it), but I think radiants look decidedly better with halos ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure either would be beautiful on you, though!

It  uploaded sideways but maybe it’ll fix itself in the post. Either way this is my rectangular radiant. I can never get pics to justify how ridiculously sparkly it is in any lighting. I love emerald cuts, but we went with a radiant because of the sparkle factor. The center diamond is 1.2 cts on a size 6 finger.
