    I feel like the vertical position really highlights the diamond its self, whereas the horizontal makes the setting more interesting. This is entirely a matter of preference, but I like vertical.

    Both styles would work. It depends if you’re more traditional or don’t mind something different. See how each makes your fingers look. Vertical tends to elongate fingers.

    @futuremrsj2014:  I think it would look gorgeous either way, but I voted for vertical.  As @Scintillante: said, vertical stones tend to elongate your fingers.  I have an emerald cut, and I love that it makes my tiny fingers look longer!

    @angelinthesnowxo:  Sounds beautiful! I’ve read about bees who placed their emerald cut stones horizontaly to have their “freakishly long fingers seem shorter”. So you can pull whatever illusion you wish with that cut 😉

    @futuremrsj2014:  pretty ring.  i like it either way really.

    here’s a pic of a stone set east/west for an idea of what it could look like.  (not cushion though)

    I don’t think it looks bad vertically, but I think I’d personally prefer it horizontally.

    It looks more striking and unique set horizontally, so that’s what I would go with.

    Vertical makes your finger look more elongated and slender. I vote vertical.
