I want something less common for my ring, so i’m wondering – what cut do you see on women the least?
Right now my top choices are asscher, oval and emerald. Are these not uncommon at all?
The stone will probably be a moissy.

I think the least common that I’ve seen are heart shaped stones, however, not everyone likes heart shaped jewelry. I’ve actually seen quite a few emerald and oval cuts around me (as well as cushions and pears), so I’d say that asscher cuts are probably the rarest.

I agree with PP, heart shape stones are seen the least, it depends on your preferences though. I think ovals are becoming more popular, as are emeralds, so out of those asscher cut would be the least common. I suggest that you try them all on and see which you like the best before deciding 🙂

I figured the heart shape is rare but i really don’t like it.
Should i consider a pear, maybe?

Ovals are definitely on the rise, so I’d say asscher.

I’d say that heart, marquise, and asscher are uncommon (for now, at least). When I went shopping with Fiance, we really only looked at elongated shapes, and they weren’t easy to come by. Most jewellers would have only one or two of each shape. In fact, Tiffany had exactly 0 marquise in their entire sales network!

I’d say asscher. I’ve never seen one!
If you’re going with moissy, then your choice is already made for you – oval. Moissy doesn’t come in step cuts.

I’m technically eyeing the Amora Gem. 😉

irina-noelle: Out of your choices, I would say asscher. Have you thought about a Radiant? You can get the shape of an emerald, with the sparkle of a round! I’m a bit bias though, as I have one..and don’t see that they are too common at all.
Pears are also unique, one of my good friends has a gorgeous pear halo ring.

Out of all the shapes you listed..I see asschers the least..so id consider it more rare

I have never seen an oval diamond or moissy in real life. It’s not a very pretty cut for that type of stone. A friend of mine has an oval emerald and it’s very pretty.

How about a radiant? I tried to find one at my local jewelers and couldn’t seem to find anything. I just got mine last week and loving it!

Pretty much everyone I know has a round or Square solitaire but I have seen a few ovals and emerald cuts too. I wanted something more unusual so went for a pear (I’m the only person I know IRL with one)
Here it is…

irina-noelle: in that case, my vote would be for the AG krupps.

Definitely the asscher. I see lots of ovals IRL (my mom has 2), and emeralds here and there, but hardly anyone has an asscher. I ring creep too. On everyone….subtly of course.
I know someone with a radiant. Hers is a square radiant and it’s so awesome. It has those nice cropped corners and it sparkles like a princess.
