I need your help again..... :)
I am looking for a pair of oval diamonds around 4-5mm long for a budget project. I have set myself $1000 to find some but obviously the cheaper the better. I know I'm only going to get lower specs for that but thats fine by me.
I've searching all the usual suspects but they don't seem to have much. The main problem is finding stones that are small enough with lower specs!
What do you think of these pairs:

SET A- $1200
1) 0.32 ct.
E+/VVS
Good cut, polish, symmetry
5.30x4.00x2.40mm
Depth %: 60
Table %: 62

2) 0.33 ct.
E/VVS
Good cut, polish, symmetry
5.36x4.01x2.35mm
Depth %: 58.6
Table %: 64

SET B- $1400
1) 0.31ct
Very Good cut, polish and symmetry
E/VVS2
5.22 x 3.82 x 2.18 mm
Depth %: 57.0
Table %: 64
Girdle: Medium to Very Thick
Culet: None
Fluorescence: None
Length/width ratio: 1.37

2) 0.31ct
Very Good cut, polish, good symmetry
F/IF
5.29 x 3.85 x 2.31 mm
Depth %: 60.0%
Table %: 63%
Girdle: Medium to Very Thick
Culet: None
Fluorescence: None
Length/width ratio: 1.37

You cant really evaluate fancy cut stones (ovals) by the numbers. We need pics and aset images. If you have any,
please post so we can have a look. If you can see them in person just make sure you look at them in all different
lighting and make sure the faceting pattern matches close enough.

I would contact a vendor to source you matched ovals. I've read on PS that Good Old Gold has found matching fancy cuts for people in the past. If you're making a ring, it's usually less expensive to have that vendor source the stones for you and include it in the cost of the ring.

Sorry guys, been on vacations.


What do you think?

I plan on buying on the stones myself and then having them set locally. My local jewellers are way over priced so I won't source thru them but I've found the setting I want there.

I like the pair in the picture. They look like they match very well.

I think i prefer the photoed set, the bow ties look smaller. But maybe thats just not shown up in the photo?
