by SouthernGent » Dec 6, 2018 In one of my first posts here (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/stone-or-ring-first.245383/), I asked for assistance in designing a men's ring for myself using some sort of blue stone - tourmaline, zircon, topaz, aquamarine, etc. In intend for the stone to site transversely (east-west is the term I keep seeing on jeweler's websites). What would be the best cut for this, emerald or oval? I guess it would depend on the stone, too, yes? For example, many aquamarines use an emerald cut in order to show off that clear blue color. Any guidance?
