    I very much like oval and pear shaped stones. As far as cut, I love vintage cuts, like the August Vintage cushion or a transitional cut diamond. They’re just so lovely.

    I’d say one of my least favorites is a princess cut, too. It isn’t the shape that bothers me, it’s the faceting of the cut which doesn’t appeal to me. But, to each their own!

    I have a pear. I actually love most the shapes with heart being the only one I wasn’t fan of but that had to do with how it looked on my stubby fingers.

    londonbeeee :  Least favorite would be heart and princess. Heart shapes seem almost childish to me, princess is too angular.

    I like all the other shapes, but cushion and oval are my favorite. I like that they’re a bit more modern but still timeless.

    I love rounds, emeralds, and ovals.

    I dislike princess cuts and asschers. Aesthetically, I don’t like their body shapes.

    Emerald cut for sure.

    So elegant and understated but when the light hits it just right….BAM..in-your-face big and bold, sunglass wearing flashes of light. cool

    I don’t really have an opinion on other cuts LOL

    londonbeeee :  I also love elongated shapes, as I find them to be elegant and they compliment my long fingers! I knew that I wanted either a marquise, oval, or pear diamond. When I tried on a marquise, I didn’t need to look any further 🙂 They’re my absolute favorite.

    Cushion is my absolute favorite by far, followed by pear and oval. I love them so much I actually bought myself a cushion diamond before I even met my boyfriend! I just thought they were so beautiful and why wait for a man to give me one! Then I met him like 2 weeks later and thought it might be weird, so I gave it to him to use for my engagement ring. He didn’t really want to use it because he’s traditional but it seems like a waste not to use it. I started shopping with him for a new one and he’s starting to see what a waste it would be to buy another one, so we’re still debating over it, LOL.

    I don’t really like princess, heart or asscher.

    I love princess for the exact reason previous posters don’t, I love the clean lines and angles.

    I’ve taken a recent liking to radiant cut as well.

    My least favourite cut is the heart shape. It seems childish.

    My favorite is OMC and OEC. I dislike oval, round, and heart. 


    ETA: I dislike the more modern round cuts but love the old mine cut round cuts.
