Thank you!

BTW not a pad, but what do u guys think of this emerald:

mmexport1615085365983.jpg

I've been quoted around USD2000 for the entire ring- do you guys think it looks too good to be true?

An insignificant oil 1.6ct, exceptionally clean emerald surrounded by what? Diamonds? What weight and clarity? The GRS report refers only to the centre stone.

For USD 2,000.

If that’s legit I’d snap it up. But generally when something sounds too good to be true.....

The seller actually got back to me, and said she misquoted the price; it's actually USD4000 which sounds a lot more correct lol.

What do u think of the pad pics tho?

Personally I prefer the lighter colour but they both look windowed. Which as people have said before if very common in pads as they are cut to maximise weight. Still not as nice as the other one you had IMO.

I noticed that! Said vendor also has a 2.11 and 2.60ct pad; they don't look as windowed, but don't have natural daylight pics yet. Pics she's provided so far:

2/3 is lovely. Not my favourite pad colour but a lot of people love this the best.

It does look beautiful! And it looks like there isn't much of a window? But I'm still awaiting natural sunlight pics since these look a bit too perfect lol.

Fingers crossed they look nice in natural sunlight too lol! Btw what do u think of the 2.11ct? Something abt it keeps on drawing my eye.

I like the color of the 2.11 a lot. Would want to see daylight pics/videos to look at the window and see if it's an issue.

I really hope it takes on a grapefruity color in daylight! I feel that more with the 2.11 than the 2.6 tbh, but we'll see~

The first thing that I noticed was the window. The second thing I noticed was the nice color. I don't think around $4k that you're missing out.

I feel ambivalent about the pads because of the window issue. But I think it's right that you're looking at ovals now, because ovals will be easier to adapt to the idea in your sketch.

Noted! For the pads, which one stands out more, the 2.11 or the 2.6? The 2.6's seems to have a better cut to my eye, but the 2.11 seems to have a better color, but larger window?

I think the 2.11 color is attractive, yet looks pinker than the pad that you already have. The 2.64 has a large window and is too peachy for me, but I think the 2.06 looks promising. Can't see a window from the lab report pic.

Fingers crossed for the 2.06ct! Hopefully the window isn't bad lol.

Also, what abt these two pads?

I like the 2.6. It seems more pink than what you're looking for although the last image of the 2.6 seems to have more orange tones.

Love this. I would get more photos/videos but I think its the best colour out of the others and the cut and clarity seems good. In the second pic it seems like maybe a window but it doesn't seem noticeable in the first pic.

For this color (and untreated at that), I’d be willing to overlook a lot! If it’s windowed, I think it could help to make a more closed basket with yellow gold on the inside.
