I''ve been working with Josh at James Allen to narrow my choices down to 5 stones. I have specs, magnified images, and IdealScope images for each. I''ve read about looking at fancy shapes with an IdealScope but don''t have a lot of experience.

Which one would you choose??

Even though the specs show it''s a very deep stone, personally, I''m leaning towards #1

Here''s #1:

Carat: 0.54
Color: E
Clarity: SI2
Depth: 68
Table: 56
Girdle: Slightly thick to very thick
Culet: None
Measurements: 6.47*4.56*3.10

Here''s #3 - I don''t have a magnified image for this one. Looks like it''s got quite the bowtie?
Carat: 0.57
Color: D
Clarity: SI2
Depth 60.4
Table: 61
Girdle: Medium to V Thick
Measurements: 6.71*4.80*2.90

Hmm.. now that I look at it again it might be. Could just be that I stretched the image. Will definitely ask Josh about that one.

Anyone else?? What do you choose??

Definitly not #5 or #4 (unless its not lopsided). I have to agree #1 has the nicest shape.
I wish you had a picture of #3. #3 and #4 have the best cut according to the depth/tables.

Yes, #3, if I am looking at the picture correctly (correct me if I am wrong), has the least amount of light leak. The others seem to have more...

Despite it''s depth, I''m leaning toward one too.
