Both blue stones, although the round one is discernibly blue, whereas the rectangular cut stone is an aquamarine but has barely any colour, the slightest hint of blue, almost clear in some lights. I am stuck! Any opinions are appreciated. Recipient will be 50 and has had a dreadful year. Thanks smile$basket333$

Both lovely. But I prefer the round one.....

I prefer the rectangular one - much more classy.

They are both gorgeous! I do love a blue stone smile

Possibly the second one (the round one) as it is very classic but hard to choose between them really. Any clues to what she'd prefer based on her usual jewellery/clothes style?

I prefer the round one.

rectangular here think you see the blue stone more...

mumsnit: I love the stone colour in the round ring and the style of the other. It would be a no-brainer for me if the rectangle stone was the same distinct blue as the round one is! I'm not sure the rectangle stones doesn't look a bit insipid. I'm not sure of her style as she doesn't wear that much jewellery... All her jewellery is from years ago, like when she was a bridesmaid (signet ring) and a round stone from a big birthday that I'm not sure she loves. I can see either on her hand.
The rectangle one is in the sale, same price as the round one which is full price, so, theoretically, the rectangle ring is better value.

I prefer the rectangular one.

I would go for the rectangular one. Way more elegant.

Rectangular one

Chottie Sat 05-Mar-16 17:06:44

rectangular ring here too

FuckOffJeffrey Sat 05-Mar-16 17:10:35

Rectangular one looks nicest to me. The round one is nice too but I just think there is something about the rectangular one that looks more elegant and expensive.

Didiusfalco Sat 05-Mar-16 17:11:26

Definitely the rectangular one!

LifeIsChaos Sat 05-Mar-16 17:17:18

I like the rectangular one too

nooddsocksforme Sat 05-Mar-16 17:50:11

rectangular one is far more stylish imo

Indecisivejo Sat 05-Mar-16 18:28:37

I prefer the round (second one) the colour is deeper and personally I think more suitable for the age you're buying for smile

Perfectlypurple Sat 05-Mar-16 18:35:29

Rectangular one

MrsLettuce Sat 05-Mar-16 18:36:16

The rectangular one, most certainly.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sat 05-Mar-16 19:27:49

(I'm nearly 50 too, <<hint hint>> you could buy one for me) wink

I love Aquamarine and the rectangular shape shows the stone off really well.

SirChenjin Sat 05-Mar-16 19:30:49

Rectangular - it's gorgeous smile

nooddsocksforme Sat 05-Mar-16 19:49:32

im over 50 (just) and think the round one is old fashioned- what age are you jo

Themodernuriahheep Sat 05-Mar-16 19:51:38

I love the emerald cut if the rectangular one. Much less fussy. I'm her age...

Meeep Sat 05-Mar-16 19:56:02

Much prefer the rectangular one.

Sgoinneal Sat 05-Mar-16 19:57:47

Love the rectangular one.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Sat 05-Mar-16 20:00:56

I like the rectangular stone, and the other band....I can't be doing with little sparky chippy nonsense.
But from the two I would go with the rectangular one if that was the choice.
I agree with oddsock, i think the round one as it is, looks dated and very old fashioned, and I am also 50.
