    For me it is the princess cut, which I know is a very popular cut. I just don’t like it. Marquise was a close second but I love it in a halo so I couldn’t vote for that.

    Not a huge fan of pears or marquise. I know they are definitely making a resurgence right now, but all of my aunts are/have been upgrading their rings because they are just over the pears and marquise’s they got in the 80s. HOWEVER, I have totally seen several of each that I absolutely love!

    (and not an option, but I am generally not in love with hearts either- although again, I have recently seen a few on here that are just gorgeous!)

    I didn’t vote as my least favorite isn’t on the list….I just don’t understand heart shaped cuts. Why?!?!?

    While I have seen some beautiful rings on here with heart shaped stones, I just can’t get onboard myself. They remind me so much of the ‘jr. high’ promise rings that were so popular with my friends.

    steny03 :  Same here. I didn’t see heart.

    *waiting for “wear what you love!” comment to placate bees with unpopular cuts*

    steny03 :  Agree. Hearts are a bit too cutesy for a grownup ring, personally.

    I voted Princess, I don’t know why I don’t like them as much though! Weirdly I really like the look of Marquise which seems least favourite.

    not diamonds but with all stones I love hearts and pears… all my rings are hearts and im not cutesy at all, honestly dont get whats not to get its just a cut like all others (just a less boring one tongue-out)

     

    I dislike big round solitaires, I find them gaudy although tiny single round stones are nice… Ive never been a fan of emerald or oval or marquise or anything big really

     

    honestly around here the highschool/teen ring is CZ as a mock diamond so I find diamondsCZ/clear stones to be ‘junior high’ and ‘immature’ looking but rarely see them in heart or pear shapes its normally a big solitaire or three stone ring as most adults here have timeless historic classics like sapphires, rubies, amathyst etc… (which far outdate the american diamond trend since the 40s)

     

    also all my rings are vintage… hearts where a popular historical choice back in a time when kids couldnt afford to by jewellery on a whim

    My least favorite are heart cuts. From the list,  marquise.

    to be honest there isnt a shape that I dislike, it all depends on the setting it’s in, what type of gem stone etc. If I had to pick it would be a heart, but only because I’ve only found a few really nice heart pieces where as there are plenty in other shapes I like. I think a little heart pendant is beautiful though!

    I’m probably in the minority, but I really don’t care for round cuts. Round cuts are classic and beautiful, which is a plus, but to me they are so, so boring.

    I feel like someone is going to get their feelings hurt by this thread somehow, even though it’s just for fun, so I want to say that no matter what shape diamond, I have seen a ring featuring it that I love! For instance, I feel like Marquis diamonds are dated and sharp and I feel like I’d probably stab myself if I was wearing one, but I’ve seen some SERIOUSLY gorgeous halo marquis rings recently that make me drool. But, if I had to pick a diamond shape I don’t like, it’d be the marquis.

    The heart ones are the worst. I’m not 5 lol. But honestly, I really ONLY like princess cut or a good brilliant round cut. My grandmother’s ring (which is now mine) is 6 marquise stones side by side, and it’s quite beautiful, but as a solitaire, not my favorite. I guess I also hate the ones that are asymmetrical (teardrop/pear, whatever that’s called).

    I originally was DEAD set on a princess cut ring, but I fell in absolute love with a round cut that was in a square-ish setting. The jeweler showed me a princess and a round, both same quality, but the princess cut was not as sparkly as the round….so I changed my mind on my favorite haha.

    I’m kinda a stone snob haha. I like things simple, clear-cut and symmetrical 🙂
