last night my sister in law came over and got her rings cleaned with my ultra sonic. she has an 8* 1.18 ct, and my wife has a venus 1.15 ct, and we were comparing the difference. the 8* has the bigger flashes with bolder arrows, where the venus has more little sparkles, and looks a little bit bigger. even though it''s .03 ct smaller. maybe because the 8* has a thicker girdle. but at the end, both are amazing stones.
