    With the curve at the bottom of the setting, I don’t like the squarish-shaped cushion in that setting.  Does she want another round?  I really like the picture of the oval in that setting.

    I love my mom’s pear but its over 2 carats so it looks quite big on her finger (plus she has like a size 3-4 finger). But pears definitely face up smaller. You should head over to http://www.pricescope.com. Best forum for diamond shopping. Is she set on going with her jeweler? There are many online retailers (you’ll find them on pricescope; we love James Allen which is where we purchased my engagement ring. Blue Nile is another…there are a bunch) which would get you a much better deal (you’ll either be able to pay less for the same size stone or stay with your original budget and get a bigger stone than what you had planned).

    I think the pearl or oval looks quite nice!

    I’m not normally a pear fan, but in that setting it would be beautiful.
