    I’m absolutely obsessed with my 1.5 carat centre stone emerald cut so of course I vote emerald. So classy and elegant.

    That’s interesting, I love hearing about other culture’s traditions! It sounds like you have tried some rings on, and normally I would expect that after seeing different styles on your hand, one would stand out to you as more suitable or comfortable…But it sounds like you just like them all! I would encourage you to go with the style you originally loved for a long time – seeing other people’s round rings may make you confused, but if you’ve loved emerald cut, then I vote emerald cut. (I have an oval and love it, so that’s my second vote!)

    Try them on and see.

    Also, couldn’t he still propose with a plain band/band with diamonds? You can wear that as a wedding band. Not sure that he needs to “break tradition” and get you a solitaire when you’re just going to get a second one later.

    I have an EC and an oval, and I feel like the oval is more flattering on me, but I think this differs from person to person! I love the classic elegance of the EC and if that’s what you’re drawn to, try some on.

    pess:  There are sooo many different kinds of plain bands and diamond bands though. Guess I don’t see why the element of surprise means having to get a solitaire.

    pess:  And that’s fine, you guys can do whatever you want. It would just make me sad to have a ring that would end up being kept in a drawer 99% of the time once I got the second one.

    Ovals can be very flattering in my opinion, I love the soft edges. However I think emerald cuts are so elegant and chic. I’m not a fan of rectangular radiant cuts,I don’t care for the facet pattern. Have you considered an elongated cushion? They almost remind me of a cross between ovals and radiants.

    I have an emerald cut but I just got an oval halo I love both but I like the shape of the oval on my finger better than I did the emerald.
