You listed the price on the first one but not the other two. Do you have any images of these stones?

Sorry about that. Been doing lots of research today and it slipped my mind.
#2 Is a higher premium than the other ones because of the color, and so i'm really wondering if its worth the premium.
Thanks!

Nope. Go with number 1. It's a really nice choice.

It does look like a good find! Should be a winner. Seems like nice value too. Those are pretty good cut specs....

If size is of importance, the first one is the obvious choice. Not worth sacrificing that much size to go up to G color.

Everyone in this post - I wanted to sincerely thank all of you for your help!!! Words cannot express how perfect everything came out.
I went with the 1.70 ct. and had it set into a band from a friend's jeweler a couple weeks ago. I ended up proposing on January 24th, the day after the huge blizzard in New York. She gets compliments when she walks into any room - its stunning to look at.

Pictures are from Central Park on top of a small bridge overlooking New York City at sunset!
Enjoy!
