Thank you Lorelei! I appreciate your review.

This is $15k. For another $1600 I'm getting a much bigger diamond than my 1.55 HCA alternative, I am thinking that I probably won't be able to tell the difference in quality. Do you think?

Probably not, what is the colour and clarity of the diamond?

The other is G/SI1.
Sorry, what is the colour and clarity of this one?

Sorry, just noticed out of all the info I posted I left that out.
This one is also G/SI1 (eye clean).

Thanks! So same colour and eyeclean SI clarity, if you want to go larger then you can definitely consider this one instead of the smaller ACA.

Yes, they are the same. Great that''s what I thought! Will probably go bigger if I don''t change my mind completely as a result of today''s shopping and go Asscher ....

Bear in mind asschers can look a bit smaller for the weight, so if blingy size is what you want then the 2ct round might fit the bill!

Thank you, I have discovered that and it is what''s throwing me. Everytime I look at an Asscher and then a comparable size round, the Asscher loses. What I really need is two rings. Or a really big Asscher.....

But in my mind, the Asscher is the hands down winner for beauty, at least when it''s blown up big on my computer screen. My boyfriend likes sparkly, and I can appreciate that preference too.

Its hard to know what to advise....You could go with a round for your e-ring then get an asscher later for a right hand ring or upgrade!

No you can''t tell someone what they want! Based on today''s shopping Asschers are out though. It''s definitely a round.... or a cushion.

Thanks so much! I''ve been diverted by a cushion, but once I make a decision I''ll post the fantastic rounds I''ve found and hopefully they can help someone else!
