I'd love some help picking out a lab-grown EC, which will eventually be set in a platinum Heidi Gibson design. She tends to use G-H side stones/baguettes in her designs. I've attached an example, although I plan to make some slight tweaks.

I know clarity needs to be high and I'm assuming color should be fairly since I'm setting in platinum. But willing to go down a bit if ECs don't show their color.

Looking around 0.95 -> 1.15 range.

Here are some stones I've found. Curious what everyone thinks? Not quite sure how to evaluate ECs based on the video.

I think your post may get moved eventually but you can also delete and post again over at the Lab Diamond thread. Quite a few of us love our lab stones so can offer some opinions.

Not an expert, but I spend a lot of time looking at emerald cuts and the second one you posted is my pick. It's super hard to base your pick on one angle in the videos though.

I love Heidi Gibson's rings. It's definitely on the wishlist. You need to decide if you want a style that maintains an EC's elongated shape, or if you're hoping to have a more round style overall, taking into account the surrounding stones. The second stone seems to be the right sort of shape for the style of ring you had pictured.
