    Nothing against any of the cuts/shapes really because they call all be beautiful…. but, I LOVE a nice fat marquise!  I just find them classy and unique.

    Round and oval solitaire are my faves. Simple and elegant. 

    I’m not a princess or pear fan.

    I’m all about round cut, it’s timeless and so classic yet beautiful! My least favorite of all time is princess cut. I don’t quite understand why it’s called princess cut. In my opinion, it’s not feminine enough, cushion or emerald deserve the name like princess if round cut can’t have that name. It’s just my opinion, if you love your princess cut ring, I’m happy for you!

    I told FH: When you think about me & diamonds, just think princess. 


    Princess is my favorite, but I wear mine kite set. I think it’s more interesting that way. I’ve been crushing super hard on pears lately, too. 

    Rounds do nothing for me, but I’ve seen some ovals I thought were pretty. 

    My first e-ring was an emerald marquis with heart shaped diamond side stones; don’t much care for either shape anymore.

    Oval girl here.  Round would have been my 2nd choice for an e-ring.  FI likes round the best, and they’re nice but I just wanted something a tiny bit different than the typical round since I was going the solitaire route. 

    I dislike sharp edges, so princess or marquise wouldn’t work for me.  In fact, we looked at a marquise to see what it would be like on my hand.  He absolutely hated it.  LOL.  I agreed that it just wasn’t me.

    I LoOoOove cushion! I can appreciate just about any shape, except princess.  I don’t like it at all.  I didn’t think I liked marquis either, but I tried a halo marquis on once and didn’t hate it on my finger surprisingly.

    My favorite is either asscher, radiant, or round. My least favorite is cushion cut. I just feel like everyone has one!

    My favorite is oval although I have a cushion.  I was engaged previously and had an oval.  My husband did not want to get me the same shape my ex did, so my second favorite was a cushion.

    I loooove pears!  I have a round, which I adore, but I wish I gave pears a chance first!

     I love princess cuts.  After trying one on , I didn’t even need to try other stones because I just loved how they looked that much!

    I also think emeralds are really pretty even though they don’t shine as much, but there is something so elegant about them.

    londonbeeee :  I thought I like round/oval ones until I received my engagement ring when Fiance proposed. The longer I stare at my marquise diamond the more I’m drawn to it.. n she’s so exquisite, so different, so special. Maybe I’m bias ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ or I just love the blings ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

    I was always into round because it’s classic and timeless, but I am definitely going for Cushion this time around.  I can’t get enough.  I love it.

    I used to think (before I ever tried one on) that I wanted an oval, but when I tried rings on with my SO, I fell in love with round brilliants. 

    I agree with a PP that my least favorite is the heart shape, and agree that it seems very childish/young – but I know some people on here who have them and love them, so to each his/her own!

    I would be happy with princess, round, emerald, asscher, I want him to choose so I don’t have to pick!  He got me princess studs for Xmas so I think he prefers that.

    Dislike marquis, cushion, pear
