    It’s a difficult choice because they are both beautiful! I am biased because I have an oval. I like that it is unique without being too out there. I dont think you can ever go wrong with a round solitaire though… they are just more common.

    *Obnoxious cheer* oval, oval, oval!


    I love the oval, it is soo gorgeous. You obviously can’t go wrong, the round is beautiful too…but the oval is drool worthy!

    Have fun playing with those beauties!

    Do you own them both already? If so, get one set in a plain setting and the other in your micro pave setting and you can switch as the mood strikes! But if its one or the other, I liek the oval on your hand more, it slims and elongates youre already slim hands! 🙂 Congrats

    I’m normally a strictly rounds and cushions kinda girl, but in your case I’d go with the oval because the quality is so much better – it has a better colour and a MUCH better clarity!

    They are both beautiful,  but personally I prefer the oval. I think it’s more unique and striking,  although I may be biased because my stones are ovals.

    I like the oval on your hand. But the round is more classic. Also think about what size you want and if the “bigness” matters to you – I don’t know anything about diamonds but I do know that certain cuts of the same carat look smaller than others.

    I have a round, and usually like them more, but that oval is really beautiful. I think I like it better!

    @Heidibrooke:  Um, can’t go wrong with either!!! I’d vote oval though just because it’s more unique! And as you said, the round doesn’t blow it out of the water in terms of sparkle.

    ETA: Funny, I typed that before I read the other responses but so far everyone thinks the same thing!!

    Wow that’s tough!  I usually prefer the more symmetrical shapes but for some reason I am loving that oval!

    You really cannot go wrong with either.  I would think it would be easier to get a wedding band to fit with a round than the oval though.

    The oval is more unique but the round has more finger coverage.

    Oh my, what a difficult choice, they’re both incredible stones! I’m surprising myself here but I voted “round” because I think it will look better with your intended setting. If you were going for a halo setting, I’d vote for the oval, hands down. But they’re both gorgeous so you can’t go wrong either way!

    @Heidibrooke:  Oval for sure. It has better coverage on your finger, and sparkles like crazy. Plus, I’m biased as all get out.
