    This is such a personal decision. Any diamond would look good in this setting.

    In this setting I would personally go with round. I don’t know if you neccesary need to match the shape but I like round with round.

    I agree that I think a round stone would look best with that setting.  The harsh 90 degree corners of a princess would clash with the delicate pave band.  Just my two sense… but you should go with what you think is most beautiful on your hand!

    I vote round or something with more rounded corners (like cushion). I have a cushion cut stone on with a pave band and it looks gorgeous (if I do say so myself).

    I like the round with that ring. And from what I’ve heard, when you have similar carat size, round diamonds tend to look larger than princess cut ones. If that matters (or is even accurate).

    @Willow1991: Here’s mine:

    Sorry for the cell phone pic. It’s a radiant cushion so it really sparkles.

    I personally like oval cuts!  😉

    My setting looks exactly like that and I love it with my princess-cut! 🙂 I’d say just whatever you want to put in there will look fantastic.

    @Ella, then you must’ve seen some crappy cushions! I have a “modified brilliant round” which a fancy name for a cushion and it is fantastic. But the specs on it are good, too, so think about that!

    I like it because, frankly, everybody i know has a round or a princess and I like to go against the grain, so this is sort of the best of both worlds =]

    A friend of mine has a radiant, though, and holy smokies it’s gorgeous.

    Ella, my cushion is almost a perfect square. They come in all kinds of shapes. i’ve seen a couple of elongated ones, though.

    As far as facets, mine is actually cut to have more facets than a traditional round. So they can be cut super duper sparkly, too. I’ve also seen some dull ones–it seems like they’re sort of a strangely cut diamond in that you KNOW a princess has 4 90 degree angles or a round is round, but a cushion can be all kinds of wonky.
