    Hi everyone,

    Newcomer here needing some expert advice on princess cut. I am looking at around 0.8 ct and have requested ASET images for 3 of the following diamonds:

    https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.80-carat-f-color-vs1-clarity-sku-6689431
    https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.81-carat-f-color-vs1-clarity-sku-5844118

    6689431 looks nice to me but I am concerned about the light leakage at the center of the table.

    If none of the above are nice, please recommend some diamonds within that carat range. Appreciate all your help!

    Bumps. Hopefully someone can chip in their thoughts as the diamonds are only on hold for 48 hours. Thanks!

    Hopefully some princess experts will chime in soon! I find it helpful to compare any princess ASET to those from the "A Cut Above" line from whiteflash, since those are the only "super ideal" cut princess stones I'm familiar with.

    Here's a .90 ACA, since I think something of a similar size is likely the most accurate comparison.
    https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut-loose-diamond-3930752.htm

    What jumps out at me right away is that there's no white in the ACA ASET, whereas there is the white spot two of the JA ones. For that reason, I think the first JA option looks best to me, because it looks like it has the least white (which usually means leakage).

    What is your budget? There's a .9 ACA for 3,400 which looks better than any of the JA choices.

    As you know I have been looking at Princess cute. For WF-JA are the ASET apples to apples comparisons? I JUST noticed that on the WF ASET they use a grey instead of WHITE so the ASET appears to the eye to be better but are they really?

    I am not too sure about the 0.9 ACA though. It's true that there is slightly lesser light leakage but there's also a lot more green than red.

    I’m not an expert but I too have a princess cut similar in size your searching for. Looking at the three posted I like the first one.
