After debating and searching, I finally settled on 1ctw I VS2 Princess stud.

After trying them on, I started thinking if I should have gone with Round Brilliant.

Do you think thee are too old fashioned? Should I invest my money in getting RB instead?

I too love the Princess shape, it’s different. Round brilliants are lovely of course but they are everywhere on everyone.
The shape is somewhat out of fashion, but fashion changes all the time. Give it another 5 years or so and you’ll be On Trend again. Oval cuts are now all the rage in engagement rings (thanks Meghan) and the unique Marquis cut is also showing a resurgence in popularity.
Buy what you love the look of.

I don’t think one shape is inherently better than the other. Personally, I’m not a fan of princess cuts, but I don’t think rounds are better in any way. Studs are classic regardless of the shape, they’re a jewelry staple and will provide you the beauty and sparkle that just goes with everything and for everyone.

My own studs are MRBs, but if I went back and did it again I’d probably get ovals instead so I have something a bit different from everyone else.

The shape is to some degree outdated, yet design changes constantly. Give it an additional 5 years or somewhere in the vicinity and you'll be On Trend once more. Oval cuts are currently extremely popular in wedding bands (expresses gratitude toward Meghan) and the one of a kind Marquis cut is additionally indicating a resurgence in prevalence.

I would get what you like but since youre asking I do think they're outdated and now I can only picture them being worn by rappers or "Karens".

Yes they look dated to me. But even if not dated I prefer rounds. However get whatever makes your heart sing.

Ask yourself if you would love them even if they're dated. If the answer is yes, then go for it! The only other consideration I can think of is that it's easier to set rounds in different ways so maybe ask yourself if you like changing settings every x years?

I don't believe any single item dates a person. It's the entire ensemble and how it's worn.

I have 1.ctTW princess cut studs from Blue Nile and I love them.. My SIL has a 2ctw princess engagement ring and it's really spectacular.. so someone said above and it's true, do you like them? I will say I also had 1.00ct MRB studs but I gifted them to my DIL when she had my granddaughter as my husband gifted them to me when my son was born.. sort of trying for keeping the tradition alive, who knows.. I have willed my princess studs to my younger son when I die. :)

But if you really love them be a trend setter not a follower =)2

In saying that i am in the process of selling most of my gold earings for scrap, not so much because they are dated, which they are, but just because i feel they are now too young for me

Do you have an example of too young for you? Other than things from Claire’s I’ve never thought of earrings as too young.
