EmeleeRose :  I love all stones especially  yellow, blue and green ones 

my favourite cuts are round and emerald.  Then I am feeling more traditional I go for round I love it’s sparkles and then I feel  a bit more out there/ modern lol I go for emerald as the lines are clean and elegant.

Emeralds are my favorite. I love that glowy green of a natural emerald. Sapphires are beautiful too.

London blue topaz is my favourite gem stone. Round cuts are my favourite cut in pretty much everything. Here’s my Swiss blue topaz e-ring. I didn’t go with London blue topaz as my Future Sister-In-Law has one in her e-ring. Swiss blue topaz is quickly taking over as my favourite though!

And my wedding ring, also Swiss blue topaz. I can’t wait to wear it too!

When I was little, my mother let me have a ring she inherited. It was a blue oval sapphire with a double halo diamond setting. The ring is pretty damaged as far as the setting goes so it’s always need restored which is my plan eventually. However, I always thought it was the neatest thing as a child so blue sapphires have always been my favorite. 

Favorite cut would be cushion. I spent a lot of time looking at different cuts when we were ring searching. The original halo ring I wanted had a princess cut center stone. We chose not to go with that design for a few different reasons but I still liked the overall aspect of the stone and setting shape. So when we found the design I ended up using for my ering and it was cushion in a similar shape setting (which was also my first time seeing cushion cuts in person m), I was in love with it.

Diamond. Any of the old cuts. I love their quirks and character and chunky facets and pillowly crowns. 


That said, we saw recently at an antique jewellers a 4 ct bezel set sapphire (Kashmir?) with two fabulous triangle diamonds either side. Ahh….haven’t stopped thinking about it. It was so beautiful.

Amethyst, I don’t have a favorite cut but I love purple so amethyst has always been my favorite stone and it it’s also my birthstone which made it so much better. I will honestly drool over any purple colored stone.

EmeleeRose :  My favourite comes as no surprise to most likely anyone on this board after talking about it so much previously, the heart shape. Love them and found them almost magical to see in person, love how they are each so unique with they’re cut/appearance. I typically love them as solitaires and if done nicely they can appear classic and timeless too. My other favourite cuts are the rounds and emerald (which has grown on me more since being on the site). 

My favourite gemstones have to be diamond, morganite and amythest, set in Rose gold. Both would be stunning as a heart or emerald cut! Seen some beautiful morganite in person recently and would love one as a right hand ring.
