    @labossanova:  i have an oval and i love it. 

    maybe if you are still torn, you can get a gemstone pear later for a rhr.

    @labossanova:  If you can come to Ottawa, I can recommend Howard Jewellers. They have all kinds of stones (set and loose) in different shapes. What we liked best about them was that they buy directly from the diamond exchange, so they can source any stone with any specs you want and order it directly without paying a middle man like diamond dealer.

    For you poll, I voted Oval – cause that’s what I have. Here’s my 1.48ct (7.6×9.3mm) fancy yellow oval, size 8.5 finger.

    @labossanova:  Knife edge means that the middle of the band is raised slightly in comparison to the outer areas


    Here’s a better example


    I don’t think they’d be hard to pair with a band at all

    @labossanova:  Out of those choices I would choose a pear. I’m not crazy about step cut diamonds or ovals.

    @labossanova:  I haven’t ever seen a knife edge that was tapered, and the ones I’ve seen are all low profile. 🙂

    I voted oval because i like their sparkle over an emerald, and I’m one of those freaks that has to have things symmetrical, so pears only work if they are used as side stones

    I would go with an Emerald cut, but that is my absolute favorite shape of all, so I’m biased. 🙂 

    You really should try them on and figure out what you like best. Your heart will sing when you find it.

    Oval! I’m biased because that’s what I have :). I love emerald cut too though. Here’s mine

    I vote emerald cut – but that’s because I have an emerald cut 🙂
