Hi there. Did you personally see all three? Or are these 3 options your vendor has brought to your attention? They all have nice proportions. Did any have in the comments section: "Clarity based on clouds not shown"? Are all of them eye-clean? Any haziness with the strong flouro? You just want to make double sure there are no transparency issues or haziness issues with those. Those are the things I would watch for and scrutinize for when viewing. Oh and possibly look out for any large feathers at or near the girdle. They are all potentially great stones though. Talk it over with your vendor, he/she should be able to illuminate you on those things. You can also buy an IS or ASET and view the stones with it in person. Just an option ::) .

They're the 3 I've narrowed to from the vendor. They're indeed all eye clean, he did mention that the 1.40 may be closer to J color, he also feels the 1.42 has better proportions over all, and that it's on the higher end of J with better clarity. He will show the ideal scope, ASET as well.

Here are their report numbers if you're interested in checking them out on www.gia.edu - you just have to copy and past to the top part of the page.

I'm leaning towards the 1.42 - naturally I'd like the 1.52, but given the information provided at this moment, 1.42 seems the best overall. Whatcha think. :twirl:

On the GIA report you can see the clarity characteristics if that helps. Keep in mind it does take a second for that part to load I find, it could be my own laptop though.
