My favorite is the “Princess Diana” style of ring. Not sure what the technical name is, but I just love a gemstone with the separated halo. It is so classic and beautiful to me. Least favorite is easily emerald cut. They have the least sparkle, and look very bland to me.

My favorite lately has been ovals or cluster rings! Which is funny because my ring is neither, haha.

My least favorite is actually any ring with a halo. I think it stems from a very petty reason that I girl I don’t like had the largest double or triple halo ring I’ve ever seen and that soured my taste! Especially on square-cut stones.

Favorite: The classics! Oval or round solatires or three stone. I also like anything that is really modern and truly different, and pretty much all gemstones!

Favorite: twists/assymetry/bypass rings, simple solitaires or well done halos (no double or triple, or halos on square stones)

least favorite: three stone rings, gargantuan center stones, cluster rings, or heidi Gibson or princess Diana style rings. Not a big gemstone fan or intricate/complex designs.

Favourites – emeralds and other gemstones! I also like three stone.

Least favourite – ovals. I don’t know why, but they look unbalanced to me for some reason. I also don’t like Rose gold.

Favorite: diamond round solitaire – classy and never goes out of style 🙂 I also love sapphire rings in specific settings and shapes. 

Least favorite: I’m not a fan of halos, but I definitely don’t like double-halos. Emerald cuts and three-stone rings also aren’t really up there. I’m not a fan of rose gold either. I don’t mind the princess cut, but for some reason, I only like it in yellow gold.

Favourites: OEC/OMC, marquise, pear. Prefer solitaire setting, but a really exquisite halo (ala Victor Canera) is also up there. 

Least favourites: Princess, kite-set or EW set anything. Double halo. Halos where the stone sticks out. Super high settings.

My favorite is OVAL- with halo if it’s a gemstone to have a contrast, and solitaire with side stones if it is a diamond or moissy.


My least favorite is Princess, I have short stubby fingers, so it just makes them look worse!
