    Since the Bee, my new favorite is oval.  I got a 3/4 carat from Berricle and it is so pretty!

    I say pear because I have seen some beautiful pear solitaires. They make me rethink my love of rounds if I ever got a different ring.

    @labossanova:  I voted for other because I still think round is the best! Future Sister-In-Law has a pear and it’s very nice, and the other shapes are nice too, but I just love round. This is my 1 carat round solitaire:

    I do not like pear or oval, so I’d choose emerald.

    @labossanova:  I always loved radiant cut and cushion but once I found my pear, I was in LOVE and I like that not everyone has them!

    I’m not a pear fan, I’d say oval or emerald. 

    I like solitaires best on a knife edge band, too! 🙂

    I don’t think emerald is sparkly enough.  Honestly, I still like round best.  😛  BUT, out of your options, I guess I’d go with oval.  Although I do think some pear rings are very pretty.

    My sister has an oval solitaire and it is truly stunning – like a show stopper.

    I always thought a round solitaire would be TOO classic and plain for me but then I got to thinking about my wedding bands and the whole set. So we went with a round solitaire and I imagine my full wedding set will be exactly what I want. Here’s what I have:

    i think ovals make beautiful solitaires.  lots of sparkle, looks larger than other stones of same ct size and elongates your finger.

    pears are pretty too but i would always worry about knocking the tip.  i like them in a halo.

    emeralds are nice too but have less sparkle.  i only like them with accent or side stones.

    I always want a emerald cut but we cannot afford one, so I choose round brilliant. 

    However, I will eventually get myself an emerald cut ……..maybe… our 20th annivesary? hahaha

    Have you tried on anything at a store to see how they look on? That def. changed my opinion on what I thought I wanted. That said, I adore both oval and pear! I def. want a peach sapphire pear as a RHR someday. Swoon.
