Lately, and I know this ia ridiculous because I’ve loved step cuts my entire adult life, but I’ve been having a these cravings for sparkle.
I like to keep my internet anonymity but if you know me in person, you’d immmediately assaociate me with step cuts. My style is monochromatics with hints of warmth through gold jewelry. I love simple lines and my bags are pretty structured and simple.
So I guess with all that said, I’m just wondering if any of y’all had ever craved something (like a ring) that isn’t really your “typical” choice? Did you act on it or did the craving go away?

I have a round brilliant, and often dream of a gorgeous emerald cut ring, especially when I see other gorgeous ones here. I’ll never act on it though, love the ring FH and I picked out together 🙂

Love love love my step cut. I love clean lines in everything: clothes, bags, furniture etc and love that the step cut reflects my style. They sparkle so beautifully in a different way! I love seeing my friends other rings and their sparkles but at the end of the day, both Fiance and I love how simply beautiful the step cuts are.

I have an emerald cut and I prefer it over my brillant cuts in other jewelry. I too love the clean lines.

I always wanted an emerald cut. Having one has ust confirmed my love for them. I could never see myself with another cut.

nope! I have an emerald cut & I just love looking at the perfect clean lines in it! But I like that in most everything- my clothes, my house, etc… I like things to be in their place, perfectly lined up LOL. I’m not big on sparkle though, I didn’t want a sparkly ring and I still don’t. My ring has a few tiny brilliant cut diamonds around the emerald cut main stone & while I like that specific look I really don’t like how busy they look up close with all the different light facets going on…

I have an asscher, and I got a CZ round to try out because I was thinking of switching and I learned that I much prefer my step cut.

I had the opposite problem. I had an Round Brilliant, and just couldn’t get the emerald cut out of my head. Obsessed with it!
Now I have it and love it so much. I am so bored of round stones. That said, I am building up quite a RHR collection, so I do get to change it up.

I have an asscher cut and I have no desire for anything else. I’m not big on sparkle and I prefer the glass-like clarity and clean lines of step cuts. All those facets on the brilliant cuts look pretty but I find them too fussy/busy for my taste.
However, if you feel inclined to “cheat”, may I suggest trying it out with a CZ/silver ring first? Just in case you find that you don’t really care for it.

I started with a round diamond (low quality), went to a step cut morganite (to be different, I gues. idk). and am currently lusting for another, larger round diamond. I miss the sparkle, not that my original stone had much, but I learned that I love rounds.

I love my EC for its beautiful clean & clear simple design. BUT, I do look at some of the round or cushion brilliant rocks and go ‘wow, mine doesn’t bling like that’.

I have an emerald cut and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I tried on an oval and a radiant when we went ring shopping to humour the sales person but they simply didn’t interest me. Overall I love how elegant they look and that not everyone has one so they are also unique. The amazing flashes of light I get from my ring are just as eye catching as a brilliant, even more so in my opinion. My ring ‘flashes’, those rings ‘sparkle’ so I guess its just what you like!
