Hello ladies, I am a clueless male in need of help. I intend on proposing to my girlfriend soon, and I am now engagement ring shopping. I have a generational diamond that I want to put into a new setting. The problem is that it is round and she has mentioned that she likes princess cut rings. So here’s my question: Is it possible to sort of encase the round diamond a certain way to make it look square? I’m not trying to deceive, just trying to appease to her taste while using a round cut diamond. Please post links or pics if possible!
Also the settings I have seen that sort of do this seem to be really gaudy and over the top. She likes simple rings that are square.

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!
