I can only say that Pricescope has influenced me! I got a 1.51 J VS2 last Christmas as a 30th Anniversary upgrade. While I loved the stone - I realized I was more color sensitive than I thought I'd be and it bothered me that maybe it didn't have the best light return, fire and brilliance that a better cut stone could have. (while it looked quite beautiful to me - those thoughts were in my head!) Here's the link to my "first" upgrade:

My first upgrade came from James Allen and I intended to deal with Yekutiel at ID Jewelry on the 2nd upgrade as he was so helpful in finding my daughter and her fiance a stone for their engagement. The problem was I found a True Hearts stone on the JA website that I really liked and Yekutiel couldn't get that stone for me and I couldn't get it out of my mind. Despite the few he showed me, I preferred the one at JA and wound up upgrading my J 1.51 at James Allen for a 1.71 H SI1 True Hearts. Here's the link to the stone on their website:

I feel crazy for upgrading my upgrade but I am "mind clean" happy now! I'm happy with the cut, happy with the color, and chose a more open traditional 6 prong (platinum) setting that makes the diamond easier to clean and view from the sides. I am having a hard time finding the inclusions with the loupe! Plus I got a little larger stone because I had a bit of DSS too. I don't plan to upgrade again! I will try to post a few photos I took with my phone.

Beautiful!!! I really love the low profile setting, and how open it is. It really lets your stone shine!

Classic and perfect - I can really see the color difference between the two stones.

Good for you in getting exactly what you wanted - it is what makes the world go round!!

Its BEAUTIFUL!! Sorry to hijack, but how did you take that 2nd picture?!
That's ok for the hijack! I received this little thing from James Allen thAt I guess is an arrows viewer maybe? It's kind of purple inside and when you put the head of the ring inside it, the arrows show up beautifully while you look through the other end. I put the ring in a ring box so I could use one hand to put the viewer over the ring and the other hand to hold my iPhone to take the photo.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I really love this new stone/ring. The color is just white enough for me and the fire and brilliance is fun to see.
