by diamondseeker2006 » Apr 19, 2013 Okay, I am totally happy with my new 2.12 I VS1 AVR, but I knew she had a sister stone just slightly larger that made me feel that I should at least compare them before having my diamond set. I got it last night and it is cloudy today, so I just got a few comparison shots. I wish you could see them in person, because in natural light, you see the amazing pastels that these stones throw off! I can't capture what I see in the pictures! The turquoise you see is from my shirt. The color appears the same. The 2.12 is 8.15mm while the 2.29 is 8.4mm, but there is not a huge size difference. The 2.12 is plenty big enough for me, but these facets are even better the larger the stone. Another plus is that the cutter of the 2.29 is a member here and someone I really admire for his exceptional cutting. The downside is that the 2.29 is considerably more expensive. No one can really resolve this for me because I have to decide what size I am comfortable with and how much I am comfortable spending. I really love these stones and appreciate that Good Old Gold decided to design them. So while I try to figure this out, I thought I'd share a few pictures.
