Where are the certificates from?

I don't know if #1 will look very square.

Where is the girdle information?

Have you asked how the strong flouro in #2 affects the diamond? Or have you seen it?


ETA: Oh, are both GIA?

Rayka,

Welcome to Pricescope.

My suggestion...read about what AGS has done for Princesses. Check this one out. It''s above your budget, a bit, but it''s not my fault.

Best,

looking at the specs. between the ones posted and the ones I''m looking at - they aren''t that different. What makes the ones posted better than the ones I listed?

thanks for the help!
