Maybe it is not an issue of shape but perhaps style.  Maybe you’re just not a solitaire girl because you want more finger coverage.  Who knows I’m just thinking out loud.  

Either way please share pics when you get the radiant.  I can’t wait to see it on you.

Did you physically try them on? That’s what made me go from like, 10 possible shapes that I liked in theory/in photos/on other people, down to a single clear favorite for me!

When I was much younger and living at home, I loved my mom’s emerald cut diamond solitaire.  However, when I left home, I was determined to have something different than my mom’s ring. I was convinced I wanted a round or princess cut…  Then years later, I was working in a jewelry store, and that’s when I realized my first love was an emerald cut like my mom’s, and that’s what I ended up with–except mine isn’t a solitaire. 

So, it doesn’t surprise me at all that you’re having a hard time choosing a shape. It’s a very personal thing. Like a PP said, it might be that it’s the setting that’s the problem. Maybe you aren’t a solitaire girl. I’m not…

@joya_aspera:  I was wondering that too …

 

OP sometimes what may look good on others , photos, videos may not look so good on your actual finger … could it also be the width of the bands ? .. IDK just trying to help you out … b/c I for one know how picky i am with rings … also did you try them on only once sometimes you have to go back and try on for a second time and be really sure …

if all fails you can always get a solitaire they are classic and clean :-)… and if you want even more bling you can add a pave setting just saying …

@JustLove25:  The only style I can think of that you are missing is one that combines mulitple stlyles.  Like a a bezeled three stone halo.  Or perhaps a custom design with an engraved shank and paved stones.  I haven’t seen you with any vintage styles. What is it about your past rings that was off or missing?

Well it sounds like James Allen is the perfect place to find your stone.  What about the shank?  Ivknow you like yellow gold but how do you feel about side stones or engraving?  perhaps channel set or french pave?
