Hi Everyone :)

I need some help comparing two cushion cut diamonds

http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/cushion-cut/1.05-carat-e-color-if-clarity-sku-486507
http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/cushion-cut/1.04-carat-e-color-if-clarity-sku-794751

Both are a really good cut, I was recommended 1.05-carat-e-color-if-clarity-sku-486507 over 1.04-carat-e-color-if-clarity-sku-794751 but not to sure why as the 1.04-carat-e-color-if-clarity-sku-794751 seems to have a better table and depth.

Any opinions appreciated :)

Thanks,
Russo

Neither of them are any good. They both show light leakage under
The table. What you want to see are clear, crisp facets under the table that flash on and off like mirrors.

Edit - numbers don't mean much for fancy cuts. I'll try to find some good examples of cushions. You need to loosen your specs. A well cut F or IF clarity is going to be hard to find.

Not overboard indeed :) Exactly what I wanted answered.

My Partner is pretty set on an IF but realistically for a good cut it won't happen.

Ideally no less than a VVS2 D-F colour. I will look through those posted above :)

What in particular should I be looking for in a cushion cut diamond?
