I am going to the jeweler today to switch out my center stone. My ring was meant for round stones, but I have a princess center with two round stones. The center stone is too narrow for the center setting, so the round edges of the setting are visible on either side of my square stone (square peg in a round hole, basically). I''m trying to decide if I should switch to a round stone, or go with a bigger princess. The princess will obviously be more affordable, but which shape looks bigger? I heard that it was princess because of the corners, but recently I''ve heard that rounds actually appear larger.
