My first necklace arrived today (second one on the way) - I can definitely see the color but it seems well-cut and sparkles. I’ll compare both when I have them in-hand - hoping the second one is whiter and I can keep that one.

(Link so some videos: )

Thank you for sharing! It looks beautiful and super sparkly!
I think it is hard for me to see from the video if the color is coming from the stone or a reflection from the background since the background has a slight yellow nuance on my screen... how does it look to you? Do you see color in daylight too?

So, I just received my 2ct stone and it came wrapped in white tissue paper and a grey velvet pouch.... I thought they supposed to come in a box. This makes me concerned (is it a return?) and disappointed by the presentation... Anyone else received theirs?

My first one came in the grey pouch. The second came in heavily wrapped tissue paper, no grey pouch.

Funny you say that but I just received a pair of the my 2 ct stones which came in their own boxes but gone are the grey velvet pouch that the box are put in instead replaced with a white tissue paper. Also added is an empty gem parcel paper with each box. Maybe to use for return?

Are you saying your stone was inside the gem parcel paper? I can't say whether your stone is a return or not. I returned my 1.5ct stone but I never opened the box.

So far the stones I got have uniform white color, which I prefer, and sparkly, though one is a tad sparkly. So I am pleased about it. Have not taken it outside for comparison. A bit cloudy where I am. Will do so tomorrow.

Yes, ordered a couple of days ago.

My first LB order a few weeks ago came with box and gray pouch.

Interesting… this makes me a bit concerned if it is a return and something is wrong with it … I’m a total newbie….
What is the best way to make sure it is a good color / cut ? It’s for an engagement ring, so I want to make sure it’s good price / quality wise.
I think I can see yellow in it sometimes and sometimes not. What’s the best lighting to evaluate?

My nonexpert pics... unsure what color it is but maybe I? I don't think it's as low as J or as high as G. I have no idea if I took the ASET pics right... definitely shows some leakage under the table but not bad for the price lol

It measures 8.09mm

I emailed LightBox about the packaging. I am attaching their response in case anyone else is wondering. But based on other comments in this thread their answer does not seem accurate.... IMG_2314.jpeg

Mine was in the square box with the plastic on the top and bottom holding it in place, the tissue paper and the grey pouch were separate but in the box.

I didn't get a grey pouch at all! Weird!

For those of you that ordered 2 stones, for earrings, were they generally matched in color and cut?

I see some variations and it concerns me because I'd want the stones to be pretty equal. Wondering if it's worth it to pay a bit more and get a known quantity for earrings.

One of my 2ct was colorless but the other had a yellow tint. It does bother me but they’re now sold out… I suppose once I set them in studs (in yellow gold) it wouldn’t matter? Thoughts?

Mine came in tissue paper too. I nearly dropped it off the bed and into the carpet. I was expecting the plastic packaging. It is a nice lab diamond. The cut looks okay but it is definitely just a brilliant cut. I was hoping it would be worthy enough to fit in my halo that has a mined diamond I fractured. When I put it next to the mined diamond, it looks a bit hazy and smaller, even though mine is a 2.01 carat. I ordered an 8.5mm precision OEC that just came in and should get Wednesday. I can afford to keep them both but not set them both right now. I was thinking maybe 2 tcw earrings would be a better buy or even a blue diamond. Still on the fence….

Yeah I think so. I was planning on returning the one with the tint but the fear is then that I get another that’s lower colored when I reorder. Wish didn’t have to have deal with the hassle.

I am going to take some better pics of mine today. I am hoping with the sun and if I keep it free from fingerprints, it will look better. Mine definitely does not show much color. If anything, it might be a little too white for me. I am sending it back this week unless you might be interested?

I just happened to look at they had 2 carat tw cushion earring’s that are in 4 prong baskets. I think I want these more right now so I just ordered them before they disappear.

I got mine (the 2ct) no tint seen. Faces up whiter than my 2 ct cushion. I will take pictures with both when I get home today.

Mine was shipped out on Monday and was supposed to get here on Friday…it seems to be stuck at a FedEx facility. Has anyone had this issue?

I was going to ship it back tomorrow. I can take some better pics in the sun and post them here if you are interested. I would just sell it for what I paid. I will check and see when the restock is going to happen just in case.
