I think almost any shape would look amazing! But based on the design on the band, I think a princess cut would look awesome! All of those 90 degree angles. As far as size, that’s all up to you! Diamonds have varying quality, and there are plenty of diamonds that aren’t “flawless” that to the naked eye will look perfect and might make it easier to get a larger diamond that’s within budget! Many websites sell loose stones and you can compare.

First, your poll isn’t working 🙂

Second, it’s difficult to tell what size your diamond “should” be becuase of the scale of your picture.  

Third, your diamond should be whatever makes you both happy. There’s no right or wrong, too big or too small – do what you both can afford.

I think a round would look great in those 6 prongs. I’m not sure how a princess would go in there.  Are the diamonds in the band round?  It would make such a pretty contrast between the shapes.

I think a round brilliant would look amazing, plus they face up larger than a lot of other cuts, so you’ll get more “size” for the amount you spend.

I think it definately needs to be a round with that head.  I also think the style of the ring lends itself to a round stone.  If you are worried about cost, have you considered a colored gemstone (which would look amazing too)?  I think with the width of the setting, you should go with .75 carats or more.

I’m pretty sure they can put any head on that setting.  Any shape would look good so pick your FAV and post pics when you’re done!!

It looks like the head would be fairly easy to change. I would recommend going with a Princess if you’re concerned about cost. At least around the MD/DC area, rounds tend to run more expensively just because they’re in higher demand. Also, if you turn the princess 45 degrees, it might give a neat/unique effect with the intricacies of the bands.

I’d say round would probably work the best with 6 prongs. Not sure how a princess would work as I usually see them held in with only 4 prongs, but I’m sure a jeweler could make it work!

In order of preference: 1)I think a marquise would be beautiful because it would reflect the diamond-shaped etching on the band. 2) A kite-set princess as well.  3)Round would be the sparkliest, so I’d be in favor of that, too.


I’m w/burris that a colored stone would be gorgeous!

I agree that ROUND would be fantastic in that setting! I love your setting, by the way. 🙂
