Hi,

I'm looking for a princess cut, around 0.75 carats or 5mmx5mm, budget of ~$2,400.

What do you think of this stone?

To me it seems to have a nice pattern and symmetry, but I really don't know what I'm looking for with princess light maps.

Another option is this:

http://www.bluenile.com/princess-cut-diamond-1-carat-or-less-very-good-cut-h-color-vs1-clarity_LD01929232

Seems to have more brightness in the centre, but less contrast and perhaps not as nice shape/symmetry, as far as the light map is concerned anyway.

What do you think? Which of those would look nicer in person? And what should I be looking for with princess light maps?

Another vote for #1, based on just the maps... I tend to prefer bigger patterning, and large chunks of contrast - at least at this specific orientation - furthers that. Pics and actual ASETs would really help though!
