@Lillindy- I think emerald cuts are very classy.  There is something really compelling about all the clean lines 🙂

But I do agree with you on the research point.  It *never* hurts to be as informed as possible about your choices before making such a big purchase…

Another round here. I prefer rounded edges: cushion, round, oval etc. FH chose round b/c he liked it the most.

Round, brilliant cut. Set with pave diamonds down the sides. My fiance picked both the stone and setting. He did good!!

Mine’s not a diamond- it’s a sapphire, but round cut.

Very true doctorgirl, I also think they are classy.  It’s just hard to keep them sparkly because of the long facets.  I still love my ring, though, but I hope future brides do more research than I did when they begin talking about getting engaged.  Actually, their FH’s should also do the research.  Mine knew the kind of stuff I liked and he went ahead and got the ring, but if he had also done research (knowing how much I love sparkly things) maybe he would have discovered the rectangular radiant.

The one I’m expecting to get is a round. I think the uniqueness comes from the ring more than the diamond. I love a flashy ring, but I really wanted something that was sensible for the day to day.

My guy picked mine out all by himself, and he got EXACTLY what I wanted. It’s a princess cut with princess side stones and antique-style engraving on the band. We actually just picked out the matching wedding ring yesterday, and I can’t WAIT to get it!!

I was torn between round or radiant.  I fell in love with the estate look and really like the square settng with a round diamond dropped in or the round settings with a radiant center stone. 

I ended up getting a really odd peice though. The center stone is square but instead of having straight edges each side is rounded.  You have to look close to see it but it’s there.  I like that it is kind of a compromise between the two. But it definitey leans toward the square shape which I love 🙂
