I personally prefer round stones. I love the timeless look they have. I looked at so many rings and really delayed my engagement but i just was so worried i would in time change my mind if i went with something more trendy. Once i decided on a round stone i felt so at peace. I feel like they look amazing in any size as well. My ring is a 4ct H&A forever one colorless moissanite.

I vote for the emerald cut, but of course I am a little biased.

makeupluvr :  Hi!  I just copy the URL of the page on Vimeo, in other words, bring up the video, copy the URL I meant to say.  Then, to post it I right click on the “posting box” here on the Bee, and it brings up a box with choices.

The top one is “insert/edit link”.  Choose that.  Then, copy/paste the URL into that top field, drop down to the next one, and it will fill it in automatically, then hit “Add Comment” just like if you were replying to a post.

I do this on a computer, not a phone, don’t have any idea if that works on phones.

I love both, but I prefer a round overall. Here is mine. It’s a 1.95 OEC. I don’t think you can go wrong with either!

Just for some further insight on what’s actually “classic” and “timeless”…the classic emerald cut was developed because actual emeralds were so soft and the step cut was the gentle enough not to break the stone.  When diamonds surfaced, they used the step cut because it required the least amount of skill because of how long it had already been being used.  As technology advanced, they were able to create all of the cuts that we see today but emerald cuts increased in popularity during the art deco phase.  Unfortunately, popularity died down.  It’s damn near impossible to try on an emerald cut stone in a jewelry store because they’re in such low demand that jewelers don’t want to keep them in the store and taking up window space.  This perpetuates the cycle of women not wanting them because it drastically decreases the exposure that women have to them.  

The major point is that if you want something that EVERYONE else has, and share the same thing with bazillions of women around the world, go with the round brilliant stone. If you want something different that only a handful of women have, go with the emerald.
