I am getting closer to a decision. I have the following 3 OECs at home and I'm trying to decide. The 3.10 L and the 2.76 K are neck and neck, and hard for me to choose the better one. The 2.78 K I will admit I have put aside for now because it just doesn't "speak" to me the way the other two do. But maybe there's something in the clarity or proportions I'm missing. Any comments and criticisms are very welcome. The 2.76 K has an "extremely thin" part in its girdle and I do want prongs not bezel, so how much of a consideration is that??

Here's the 3.10 L/VS1 (9.02 X 9.04 X 6.07) polish and symmetry good, fluorescence none


Here's the 2.76 K/VS2 (8.67 X 8.86 X 5.68) polish and symmetry good, fluorescence none


Seems I can't add another attachment so I'll put the 2.78 L VVS2 in the next post.

Here's the last one in consideration:

2.78 L/VVS2 (8.94 X 8.98 X 5.47) polish and symmetry good, fluorescence faint:


ALL COMMENTS WELCOME! This is fun but I'd like to be making progress......

Do you have pictures of the stones to go alongside the plot diagrams?

OEC's are fancies. You need pictures and, if possible, an ASET image.

THe lab reports don't really mean much except that one has a very thin girdle in spots, and I would ask about that. It could be a danger. Beyond that, we need pictures, etc.

Just to be clear, I have these three stones in my possession for evaluation. I would have to send them elsewhere to get ASETs, although I could get an IS myself and look, I suppose. Here is the 3.10 L in video:

And a still picture


Here is a picture of the 2.78 L



The 2.76 K, pics I took, not very illuminating. Maybe tomorrow in daylight I can get the facet pattern.



The one with the "extremely thin girdle" is the one in the platinum setting with prongs, so I guess someone thought it was safe enough! I don't know how much risk there is of damage.

Ok, arkeib1, thank you for input, but why (in your mind) the 3.10? Just so I know what "counts" for you the most.
