    If I were to get a diamond, it would be a round brilliant.  It’s a beautiful, classic style.  Because I have that preference, of the styles you have listed, I most like the oval.

    Emerald. Classic and classy. My next choice would be a pear.

    I’ve got an asscher solitaire so I have a soft spot for step cuts. There’s something so special about their sparkle, it’s looks like a hall of mirrors.

    @labossanova: I hear what you are saying… It depends though on your ring size.  I’ve got a size 5 finger so a 1 ct is just right.  Anything bigger on my finger would be too much. Plus I am clumpy and constrantly bump my hands everywhere.

    @labossanova:  Oval, always oval. Oval is best because it’s my current favorite.

    But that said, I am always attracted to emeralds, they are to me the classic diamond shape, and classy as well.

    Emeralds are my favorite, but I really prefer them with side stones to offset it.  I think I would choose a pear over an oval.  Round is definitely my last pick.

    @labossanova:  I have a pear and I love it. When Fiance and I were researching he encouraged me to try on different shapes, and when I tried the pear I knew that shape was it.

    I would go to a jeweler to try on the different shapes and see if one speaks to you over the others!

    Here is my pear.

    I think ovals are awesome, as long as they’re not too long. RB isn’t the only round cut, though. OP have you ever seen a Solasfera?
