    londonbeeee :  Mine is not on the list, my favourite is a heart which I have in my engagement ring. 

    My least favourite cut has to be the marquise cut, followed by the princess cut.

    Round or oval hands down.

    I do not like princess and marquise cuts at all.  I have a round.

    I’m in love with pears and ovals. Actually I really love them all!! I used to dislike a heart cut until I fell in love with one and realised how beautiful they look on the hand. I honestly couldn’t choose they are all too pretty to be disliked in my opinion.

    otherwise pear is my love. or a very high set princess 🙂

    volvo321 :  same. I love rounds but only OEC, OMC, or transitional cute. I don’t have nearly the same interest in modern brilliants.

    I like round, pear, princess 

    Don’t really like ovals and cushions

    Marquis is the worst

    Something about emerald cuts makes me think of royalty and vintage elegance. I kind of prefer the broader flashes they give off instead of the more dainty sparkles of other cuts. I’m not a huge heart cut fan, but I think that could be because it’s the only cut I haven’t seen in real life.

    When we were looking for my ring, I was absolutely certain that I was only interested in round or oval. I have a round stone and I love it.

    Since then, though, I have discovered a love for emerald cut stones and ascher cut. I’m currently in the midst of a love affair with princess cuts and I already had a few pear shaped rings in my jewelry case so I’ve been really pleased to see that pears have been getting a lot of love and I’m loving them all over again.

    I don’t like heart shape but I recently saw a ring that was called heart shaped but it was more like a very broad pear and I really liked that.

    londonbeeee :  Least favourite are hearts and princess, with a special hatred for marquise.

    I voted for round because just from personal preference, I think round diamonds are pretty.

    If we were talking coloured gem stones, I also like emerald and pear cuts.

    My favorite is Emerald.  I can get lost in that hall of mirrors forever!  Close seconds are oval and pear, followed up by asscher but only if it’s kite set, then an elongated cushion and marquise, then round.  Radiant and princess are at the wayyyyyyyyy bottom of my list along with trillion.

    I love princess cuts the best! The shape really suits my hand! I also love pear and marquis. 

    I dislike heart shape since they seem childish and round because they are so common they seem a bit boring to me

    I love princess cut. So classic and beautiful. Just really dislike round on my hand and the pear cuts seem too big to my eye.

    jewels84 :  You seem to really like gemstones.  It’s to know that there are others on the bee who can appreciate stones besides diamonds.

    teamroro :  What’s an emerald marquise?  Is that a marquise shape with step cut inside?  Do you have a picture?  I’m completely intrigued…
