My favorite is either a round brilliant solitaire in a Tiffany style setting or this one. Least favorite is a marquis solitaire.

I like solitaires the most, any cut. 

The least… clusters of diamonds or gems in thick yellow gold. Too 80s. And combos of super vibrant clashy colors.

My favorite is a solitaire—something where the stone is showcased. I also love antique settings. 

My least favorite (for myself) would be something super flashy with lots going on. I’d probably not like something like a double halo.

My favorite would be an emerald cut with a halo. Least favorite is definitely round solitaires! So boring!

This ring has everything I love. It’s my fav shape, I love double halos, claw prongs, rose gold, and colored stones. I also prefer a daintier size, and I love how petite this is. This is my dream ring, although I like plain shanks, so would probably change that.

Three stone emerald cuts make me swoon, and here are those claw prongs again.

I love black and salt and pepper diamonds. I wouldn’t say no to Anna Sheffield’s Bea:

Least fav is coffin cut. I’m also not a fan of black metal.

Favourite: rose gold solitaires (no pave or side stones), halos with plain bands/shanks, vintage/floral clusters. 

Least favourite: illusion set princess stones. I love clusters, but I’ve never been able to get on board with the elaborate illusion clusters that use square stones of any kind.

I love Princess Diana’s ring but probably because it’s a halo.  I’m not a big fan of the more square cuts, emerald, radiant, asscher, HOWEVER I think they are just gorgeous in general, but not something I’d want to wear.  I like the center stone to be more rounded like a cushion.

Favorites: Marquise and/or emerald cut solitaires  on plain bands (side baguettes ok) because they’re unique and not many people own them.

Least Favorite: Round cuts with pave bands because they’re more popular and pave needs more care to avoid damage

Favorite: Round, oval, pear, & emerald. Solitaires, yellow gold then rose gold.. I love the look of a solitaire with a plain wedding band and a 5 or 7 stone anniversary  band with bigger stones.

I have a love hate relationship with halos. I’m not a big fan but there are 3 bees who post regularly and their halos are to die for. I think gems with halos are aesthetically pleasing but not neccesarily for me. 

Least: pave bands on e rings, clusters, white gold/platinum (on me at least), heart shape.
