SO has given me the green light to select a center stone for the ring of my dreams (yay!). It is a squareish halo and the jeweler we worked with mentioned we can do a princess, cushion, or even round for the center stone. I cannot decide! I unfortunately do not have a pic of the set, but I’d like to see your pics and your opinions! Help me, bees!

if the hallo is squared, but still has rounded corners, I’d say a cushion would be pretty! the softer square shape looks goregeous in a hallo. I think the sharp points of a princess are too sharp for a hallo look, and if the hallo matches the princess, it’s really square for my tastes. I think the cushion would be nicer than a round as well, but I like things to match lol
can you see different shapes placed in the setting you like in person? it really helps seeing things actually on your finger! that’s one thing I learned when shopping with my SO! good luck! :]

@Papillon23: check out all the halo threads here….you’ll find the setting with princess,round and cushion. In my opinion, cushion will look best with that setting. I have a round on round setting halo and I love that they match up…my friend has a round on a square setting and I always compare ours and think…”why didn’t she get a princess to match that square?!”

I have a cushion cut center stone for my halo. I adore it. So I am probably partial. It seems to be a pretty common here on weddingbee, but I don’t know anyone in my area that has one, so I also love that feeling of uniqueness.

My princess! I asked for rounded corners so it wouldn’t look as “harsh”. I love how it turned out!

I vote cushion, I love cushion diamonds.
And also remember there are different shapes of cushion, “cushion” can be almost any diamond with rounded edges.
These are all “cushion” diamonds:
And as if you didn’t already have enough choices, asscher is another square-ish diamond shape:

We did a round center with our cushion halo and I love it. I think the different shapes look amazing together.

I say round diamond with the square halo or cushion with the square halo.
