Is it better to go for quality or for size?

I am setting it in a micro pave halo so it will appear larger then it is.


Anyone have any experiences buying anything online? Probably much better to see it in person, no? Can anyone recommend a good diamond wholesaler in NYC.


Here are the choices.

I Have not seen this one yet.
Cut - Cushion Modified Brilliant
carat 3.00
Color H
Clarity SI1
[Eye Clean]
Polish Excellent
Symmetry Very Good
Fluorescence none
Measurements 8.83 X 8.50 x 5.23
Culet - none
Girdle medium - very thick (faceted)
57% table
61.5% depth


This I have seen and it is magnificent and the nicest one I have seen. However I think I may want to go larger?
Cut - Cushion Modified Brilliant
carat 2.27
Color G
Clarity VS1
Polish Excellent
Symmetry Very Good
Fluorescence Faint

Measurements 8.03 X 7.14 x 4.77

Culet - very small
Girdle thin - slightly thick (faceted)

59% table
66.8% depth


Thoughts?!

We can't tell you anything about the stones. Fancies are different, and need to be seen, or at least have what's called an ASET pic to show cut/light return.


There are two great cushion jewelers in NY. This one is in LI.

http://shop.goodoldgold.com/

And here is a recent thread on a cushion video they did for a poster.

Also, there is this jeweler. They are on 5th Ave.

Both of these have outstanding cushions!

I meant to add, a true "wholesaler" cannot legally sell to the public.
