I am looking for an oval cut diamond which looks larger than its size but has great shine and falls right under the 1.5 carat mark. I have been having trouble finding ones between 1.45-1.49 ct range. On whiteflash I noticed, they only had stones 1.5 carats or higher. I was wondering if you ever came across an oval diamond right under 1.5 ct that shines very well but also looks larger. My girlfriend prefers an elongated look (we saw stones about 1.6 to 1.8 carat which she really liked but I noticed they all were very different in measurements as some were little fuller looking than others). I know the 1.5 carat and above means an increase in price per carat so I am hopeful in trying to find a stone under 1.5 carat, but if not then 1.5 carat would likely work. I found two 1.5 carat diamonds on whiteflash (no video or picture available) have the below measurements (L*W*D): 9.23*6.33*3.89mm. Depth 61.4%, Table 63% 9.17*6.39*3.98mm. Depth 62.2%, Table 58% Two questions I had: Do you believe above diamonds would have high light performance? I am ideally looking to have a stone that is lesser in depth (but not to the point that it takes away from shine) in in order to have greater length and width. Do you know of any diamonds that may have that larger look but with quality light performance? Or if you knew of a great stone, would you be able to provide their measurements?
