    Just personal preference for me. I prefer rounded stones.

    Of the two, I’d choose oval. It all depends on what kind of sparkle you like, but I don’t like the sparkle you get from radiants. Also, radiants are deeper stones, so they don’t face up as big while ovals face up fairly large for their carat size.

    I think they look really different. If you go see both with similar specs and carat size, you’ll have a clear preference. 

    That’s being said, I have an oval and it sparkles like crazy πŸ™‚ I think it has the sparkle of a round but stands out from a sea of rounds and princesses. I love my oval.

    I love round but hate princess cuts. Funny thing though is I definitely prefer radiants (think they’re beautiful!) over ovals.

    I prefer oval, but I like radiants as well, depending on the setting.

    Radiant, b/c it’s more of an interesting cut. Also, I don’t care for the “bow tie effect” that seem to plague the oval cut. Altho, both of my mom’s e-rings (original and upgrade) are ovals and they are beautiful.

    Oval, but I’m biased.  I LOVE mine!

    I have an oval so I voted oval, though radiant cuts are growing on me, they’re stunning.

    @LoveNYC123:  I voted radiant, I have one so I’m biased!

    ovals are very pretty, but I prefer the sparkle of a radiant, biased opinion πŸ™‚

    Definitely oval.  I like rounded things though, so I automatically like oval, round, cushion (kind of rounded at the corners) better than radiant and princess.
