I love the colors in that stone! Plus I’m a sucker for an antique cushion.
I came from a family where no one had any diamonds. I knew nothing about them. A relative of my husband’s had just gotten engaged and she had a huge round diamond that was beautiful. So when we went into NYC the assistant asked me what I was looking for, I said round, figuring I’d get one like hers. I didn’t know any other shapes, I was that clueless. Then I found out how much diamonds cost and realized there was no way I was going to get that huge round diamond lol.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted, so I tried out lots of things until I found the one. My husband proposed with a round diamond. After selling it, I had an oval morganite that I still wear occasionally as a right hand ring. When I learned about moissanite, I bought a H&A moissanite solitaire. Then I began to try different shapes and sizes by ordering rings from Berricle and wearing them for a while. I ruled out everything except for emeralds. I completely fell in love with emerald cuts when I saw a diamond eternity band in real life. I just got a new emerald cut moissanite and it’s perfect. It’s simple and elegant and almost indistinguishable from a diamond, but it still flashes rainbows like a moissanite. I’ll probably swap it out for a lab diamond at some point in the future. You really have to love an emerald cut to be satisfied with it. It doesn’t sparkle like other shapes. But a well cut moissanite in any shape is beautiful.

Fellow Gemini here!!! I naturally gravitated to cushions but also loved the look of radiant or emeralds! I ended up going with a cushion after trying on both and seeing that it was better suited on my fingers.

Oh you guys! I love all the advice and truly appreciate it.
The more I think about it and talking to my guy, I think emerald cut is the way. Cutting out sizes in paper to see what size but I think 11×9 because fuck it …let’s go big Hahahaha
The ring that kinda sealed the deal with me …..
I love that hidden halo action. Just gives it something special without adding side stones …
We shall see if this is the ring I end up with but I feel good having the shape settled!

I echo everyone that says to try them on! You’ll know once something is on your finger if you really like it or not. I went by myself and just tried what I was between. I was set on a step cut and my now husband got me an Asscher which I did not try on when I went but I can tell you I LOVE it.
Step cuts are also not dull or lack shine they just flash differently – more of a fire flash than a sparkle all the time look. I love the way my ring moves in the light and have had may of my girlfriends comment and say they didn’t expect my ring to be so ‘shiny’.
