@jessig2b:  Does your wedding band have bezel set marquise? Would you mind sharing a second picture of it? It’s beautiful!

@_knickknack:  aww thank you so much! That’s a particularly nice compliment since the thickness is actually the only thing that worried me when I got it – I have quite small hands and I was worried it was too heavy for me, but I’m sentimental and I don’t want to change it because it’s what my fiance picked!

@thecoffeefiend:  the wonderful thing about a thick band is that it will last a lifetime! You’ll never need to worry about it wearing down πŸ™‚

I love ovals! Elongated shapes make my fingers appear a little longer πŸ™‚

 

For reference, my finger is a 5.25-5.5

The white gold set is something between and oval anda cushion shape. 1.01ct, but faces up a little smaller due to the way it’s cut. It was my grandmother’s diamond!

The 2nd is a sapphire set in a white sapphire halo. The center stone measures 7.5×5.5mm. Not many people like darker sapphires, but this moody little thing sets my soul on fire πŸ™‚ring32sapphire_ring2

I was also torn between rounds and ovals and went with the latter. I’m so happy I did!

Ovals do need a bit more work: you need to make sure to get a good length to width ratio, little to no bowtie effect, usually a higher color than a round (they show it a bit more), and a good cut (which is not graded for fancy shapes). It’s not an easy option specially since there are a lot less ovals available in comparison to other shapes. But the upside is they look bigger than a round of the same ct weight, they are unique while still resembling a classic round, and they elongate the fingers.

Rounds tend to be easier to buy because cut is officially graded and they don’t have the ratio or bowtie problem, but they are more expensive than any other shape with the same specs and they are a lot more common (9/10 diamonds is a round). 

My ~2 ct oval πŸ’•:

Here are mine, both round. The one on top is 1.91 carat and the bottom is 3.02 carat. Round diamonds will forever be my favorite but I’m longing for a pear diamond. Love how they are enlongated and can be worn two ways.
