Since one is never enough I am having a band made with emeralds to wear with my ER. Does anyone see any glaring issues with any of the 3 emeralds below? They are Brazilian and 4.6mm 4.8mm and 4.6mm for now. Sako is going to trim them and may possibly recut them to french cuts if we get that far.
My ER emeralds are lighter than most I wasn't looking for super blue green.

They are pretty. One has more glow than the other two. Or at least the photo does.

How much loss in size would french cut result?

They would be very pretty that way, but the size may be a good loss.

Yeah , I think that is glow not just the photo. It also has a little dark spot but I can live with that.

I'm expecting a significant loss of size if we go that way. That said since this is a band I'm ok with keeping it slimmer. He said he had to trim regardless, and the smaller ones would have to be tapered to fit the setting.

Your emeralds are very lovely! Not an expert by any means, but is the one on the farthest right of the picture going to be in that position? I ask because its the one that's noticeably the most light out of all of them. If he cuts to another shape, the biggest thing to worry about is what that's going to do with the saturation of these stones and how well they'll end up matching to each other, because if you like this color now, you might not want to do anything because it will likely change.

You have to decide if you're OK with that. IMO I would look for the stones in my preferred shape first instead of trying to fit a square peg into a triangular hole.
