I have no clue except for what I've read on here in the past couple weeks. I'm trying to find a mostly square cushion in the $3,000 - $4,000 range. Of course I would like to keep it close to 3. I've found these at James Allen and would like to know if I should ask for the ASETs, etc. or are there some better choices?

that first one looks pretty 'crushed ice' to me...is this the look you are going for?

No, the crushed ice look is really not what I was looking for. The last 3 I posted are the ones the salesman said had the best specs in the under $4,000 range. So, I took his word for it and figured I would post here for more insight.

I would not waste one of your ASETs on the first one. Out of the three you posted, the second looks the most promising.

I've been looking in the G-I color range. I would like it to be as white as possible.
As far as clarity, I would just like it to be eye clean. I've been trying to stay around VVS2.

for eye-clean VS2 and above should be fine. many SI1s are eye clean.
