Turns out, round cut is the favorite cut for diamond solitaire studs. Approximately 70% of the respondents voted for this cut and with it, round cut is our most popular diamond cut for studs.

The cushion cut received 32% of the vote, and with that, it is not far behind the princes cut. This spurt in popularity can be traced back to some swoon-worthy cushion cut diamond studs that have landed the market lately. They are just spectacular, even in their plainness and simplicity.
