I finally decided to register after being a long time lurker. And thats because I’m officially waiting – I took the subtle hint when my SO asked me to go look at rings tonight. (WOOO! score.)
Anyway, can any of you ladies post pictures of your princess cuts? I haven’t looked at rings yet and I’d like to get an idea of what to nudge him towards at the store. He is so traditional, I NEVER thought he’d ask for my input. So now I have no idea what I want! I just know I like square.

Oo! I just got engaged on Sunday (lucky me) and registered here today. I LOVE my princess cut, and the kite setting makes it a little bit different, which I love. We shopped together and ended up getting it custom made. Good luck!!!

@Mrs. Gremmlin: So pretty!!! There still aren’t too many out there – I had to look and look for ones I liked, and ultimately we went with a jeweler who made it specially for me.

@Missykate: I really love square cuts too, and before I got engaged, I was kind of a noob. I had no idea that there are SO many different kinds of squares – so you might want to really look into them before you decide which one is your favorite. there are:
princess cuts with sharp corners – this is the kind you will probably see the most often in jewelry stores.
cut-corner princess (I LOVE these – they look nice because once they’re set in prongs, they still look square, but the corners are less sharp compared to traditional princess cuts)
square radiants (there is a version with the corners cut off with these too)
step cuts – asscher, emerald, etc.
cushion cuts – SO many different kinds of these (old mine, radiant, etc.), and some of them are more square-ish than others
and possibly some others I’m not even thinking of right now!
