I think round diamonds are just more sparkly πŸ™‚

I always envisioned a solitaire ring, but my Fiance actually picked out a 3 stone ring for me. I love it to bits because it has 3 round diamonds in it! Plus some teeny tiny ones in the band πŸ™‚

princessinwaiting:  All the sparkles! I love the cushion shape of the halo on my finger, but the sparkles of my round stone. I really don’t care if its been done to death like someone mentioned on the other board. I love my ring, and will never get tired of it! πŸ™‚

I originally wanted a cushion cut, but I didn’t like the way they looked in a bezel setting. The setting made it look too square for me. I liked the way the round looked, so I decided to go for the round.

I wanted a heart shaped diamond. Or maybe a pear shaped one. Really, when DH and I started looking at rings, I hadn’t put a whole lot of thought into what I might want. But those are the two shapes I liked the best. DH, when doing his research in preparation for our first shopping expedition, read somewhere that the points of those shapes might snap off, and that a round was the safest shape with regard to the stone breaking. After that, it was round or nothing for him. So, really, he is the one who decided on a round stone.

But … I do really love my round stones. I like soft, curvy shapes in general. And I dislike sharp angles and points. (Not on others — I love, love, love looking at every shape of stone and think they all look amazing on the ladies who own them. This is just for ME and looking down at my own finger.)

When it came time to get a stone for my anniversary ring, I automatically told the jeweler I wanted a round. I didn’t even think of other shapes. I guess I’ve just gotten used to it or attached to that shape. LOL

I knew I wanted a round or cushion. My husband liked the round because it seemed more traditional to him. I tried on rings that were round diamonds in a cushion halo and fell in love. The round had more sparkle.

princessinwaiting:  It’s simply the image I see when I think ‘diamond’ πŸ’Ž! Plus, I went vintage and they didn’t really have many other cuts back then. I have an oval sapphire in my wedding ring and I really love that shape too. My engagement ring is very sparkly and I’ve come to love that aspect.

Because its classic. And also because I wanted a halo and I like how geometric it looks with two concentric circles.

DH picked my stone out – and knowing him, he went with round because it’s more traditional. I love it, though!

I originally had a princess cut. But found myself still looking for THE ONE, but nothing ever worked or looked good on my hand. So I returned them all, sold others, and went to look at a round solitaire and fell head over heals at the sparkle and look of it on my hand. 

Mot makes me feel more classic/traditional, which I feel is my personality a little. Along with being an old soul and vintage antique lover haha 

finally in love with MY ring and wont change it for anything in the world.

Because my mom has one, so seeing mine always reminds me of her, and because it screams “classic engagement ring” to me.

Oh and Fiance hates all other shapes, so I guess it’s a good thing we were on the same page.

I went with round because of the SPARKLE. It was always my favorite shape anyway because of the sparkle, but when I started trying on rings, it was the only shape I liked ON ME.

As a child, I remember admiring how pretty my mom’s ring was and always wanting something similar (she has a one carat Tiffany round solitaire)…I always associated round with “classic” and “timeless”…while I can look at other rings and think “wow, that is so beautiful”, I feel like most of them just wouldn’t look right on my hand (I have seen some truly STUNNING rings – particularly since I started looking on these wedding boards πŸ™‚ ) …my fiance and I started looking at settings a few months ago…I always knew I wanted the center to be a round diamond, but I didn’t know if I wanted a solitaire, channel set, prong set, shoulders, no shoulders, etc…he ended up working with our family jeweler to design this and I couldn’t love it more!!
