If you post your budget, we'll try to help you find something nice. Blue Nile won't work for this, you need pictures which Blue Nile is more miss than hit. Square or rectangle?

Re: Question About Pears

Diamond performance drops off signficanty once it gets dirty. A leaky shape like pears will be even worse. But if you're fanatical about keeping it clean and you want a pear, that shouldn't stop you.

Re: Modified Cushion Cut

Without some pictures it is hard to say anything.

But without anymore information, 8000 is not some kind of strange price for what you are looking at.

Re: Looking for. RB 1.8-2 Carat loose diamond..with 18k bu

yes, that looks like a great choice. Ask customer service to put it on hold and for an Ideal Scope. Choose two more, you get 3 Ideal scope requests.

Re: What do you like to drink?

Almost always cocktails. And the first drink is usually a sour, citrus cocktail. After that I switch to cocktails without citrus.
