Cushions need to be seen, images and ASET, can''t be select by numbers. Sorry. Maybe try going with a vendor to pick one for you. Most here recommend Mark of ERD or Jon of GOG.

Just want to clarify some of the terms you used.

Across top = % table?
Across stone = % depth?

GIA reports would be using ''table'', ''depth''.

Have you seen these stones in person? You can''t really pick out great cushions without at least looking at their pictures and ASET images. And 2.5 carat would be too hefty an investment without actually giving those cushions an eyeball...

Welcome!

Can you get at least photos of these diamonds? That would be a big help, cushions need to be seen to be judged. Other images such as ASET are very useful to if you can get them, these help to evaluate the light return of the diamond. I take it by your measurements you mean table and depth? Also have you seen any of these diamonds in person?
