You can put the round in a square/cushion halo:

Some vintage illusion settings can also give a round a squared off look:

Or you can just choose a 4-prong setting that has larger/more prominent prongs:

that vintage illusion setting would be a great way to make a round diamond look square! And it’s a nice nod to using an heirloom stone too.

There’s lots of different settings to give the illusion of a square diamond – some are very modern and “now”while others are vintage/antique.

Go to Google and search “Square Halo for a Round Stone”, it will show you several options.

I would also say to look into a Tacori ring design because it is well known for halos.  But Tacori designs are often on the “gaudy” side. So it might be hit or miss there.  Its always worth a shot.

Fishtail prongs give a square shape to a round stone as well As a vintage feel. I think you have lots of great options! 


Here is a beautiful example from pricescope

Can I just start off by saying this is incrediably sweet of you to get advice!  I agree with the girls…you can do a few things…put a simple halo around it to make it appear square, or add double prongs (or something of the sort) to make it appear square.  GOOD LUCK!
