Here are 2 I found on Blue Nile, 1 from Stein - any advice and words of wisdom are appreciated - I'm still in the beginning of researching:
I realize they are very similar, that's why I'd like some input:

0.71 carat princess cut diamond $1,773
Cut: very good Color: I Clarity: VS2
width 4.85mm length: 4.88mm
depth: 74.4% table: 64%
Polish: excellent girdle: med to thick
Culet: none Fluorescence: none
measurements: 4.88 x 4.85 x 3.61mm
Length/width ratio: 1.01

0.70 carat princess cut diamond $1,721
Cut: very good Color: I Clarity: VS2
width 4.73mm length: 4.95mm
depth: 74.6% table: 72%
Polish: very good girdle: slightly thick to thick
Culet: none Fluorescence: none
measurements: 4.95 x 4.73 x 3.53 mm
Length/width ratio: 1.05

This is from Stein (online)
0.65 carat princess cut diamond $1,296.75
Color: H Clarity: VS1
Certif: GIA
Depth: 74.4
Tablemeasure: 74
Polish: good
Symmetry: F
Girdle: TN
Cultet and Flour: No
Measuremnts: 4.90 x 4.68 x 3.48
(I have to look up symmetry & girdle ratings)

Will one look larger than the other, etc?

If I were you, I would get an AGS 0 princess. They are supposed to be the most well-cut princess stones, but they do have a bit of a price premium. I don''t know if Blue Nile has AGS 0 princesses or not.

symmetry ''fair'' on the last one? yikes! there is absolutely no reason to go with such poor symmetry on a princess.
''ags0'' means that ags lab graded a diamond and gave it their highest grade, which is ''0''. round brilliants and princess cuts are currently the only shapes that are graded for ''light performance'' and given a possible ''0'' grade. they are pretty much guaranteed to be awesome.

do a search using the ''pricescope your diamond'' at the top of this page and search for diamonds that are ''in house''

Any sites to provide the AGS0?
What does that stand for?
I personally would concentrate on looking at Good Old Gold and WhiteFlash. They both have an excellent reputation and carry AGS0 princess stones. It''s usually just a matter of which one has exactly what you''re looking for as to size and color.
