    We need pics, since these fancy cuts are impossible to judge on numbers alone. Reject the EGL one bc they aren't a trustworthy lab.

    I don't trust EGL, so that takes one out. It's an antique cut, and I like antique cuts to be a little warmer and size is a factor. I'd have to go with the 3rd option.

    Ask for a picture of that M against a white background.

    Without pictures we really can comment whether the stones are nice or not.

    OK this opinion is based on solely on the photos you shared above. I LOVE this one.

    Chunky monkey facets and so pleasing to the (my) eye. And oooh that culet and the high color is TDF yummy too. :kiss2:

    I love the chunky .95 and the M color from DBL.

    Definitely not the 1.10 J. First of all it's much lower color than J, and it's also terribly cut. Make sure you are only looking at reputable vendors, since there are a lot of random eBay sellers that will sell terrible stuff at high prices.

    I agree. This is my favorite of the bunch. Really lively stone.

    The second photo is hands down the best looking. The others don’t even come close imo
