Chunky facets vs hearts and arrows. I had the same decision t make and chose a hearts and arrows cut. Either one is beautiful, provided they are cut well. If you’re going the OEC route I’d look at Jewels by Grace or Old World Diamonds. If you’re doing a RB I’d get a hearts and arrows cut (usually a signature vit) from one of the reputable vendors online.
Just my $.02

Sooo I am partial to OECs but only ideal cut ones. If you’re getting an OEC and want guaranteed ideal cut, go to Jon at Distinctive Gem or Victor Canera, someone who specializes in these. I’ve been told my ring can be seen across the room, and everyone is mesmerized with the shape (how it’s not flat at the table) and chunky light flashes. Most of all… I love it, which is what matters most!!

I feel like this setting is more modern and would look better with an RB. I think OECs are perfect for more vintage inspired settings.

thank you! I, too, am partial to vintage jewelry which is why I liked it so much. I got my RB lab diamond in and dropped it off at the jewelers. Can’t wait to see it done!

That looks stunning! Can’t wait to see it set.

If the question is what looks best for your setting, definitely get a round brilliant. OEC look better as solitaires and almost always seem to show warmer, IMO.
Hope This Helps.

Yes, that is what I was asking. I purchased a round brilliant (pic just a couple posts above) and dropped it off to be set yesterday. 🙂
