I know I have been on this forum quite a bit over the past few months and I apologize if I am here posting too much, for me, a few grand is a MAJOR purchase for me and I want to know I received the very best I could at the time. I will reiterate what I am looking for below and show you two diamonds. PLEASE vote on your favorite one and show me your reasoning. These two are it, unless the pros here find another unicorn...

-Pear Shape
-I color
-1.00 carat+ (1.5 to 1.65 ratio) (8.75mm x 5.75mm or LARGER)

It's a toss up for me. I like the faceting pattern on the second stone and it is bigger. The first stone has a little more red in it but it
is sort of a block through the center...not a pretty pattern to me plus it is smaller.

Did DK say which stone he thought was nicer? Like I said, it's somewhat of a toss up but I think(???) I* would go with the second stone
because I'm more into the symmetry and prefer that look in a pear.

I just sent David the link to the post. Yekuitial at ID is the owner of the 2nd stone, and his preference is #2, but it is very hard to say without having both stones in front of him.

WOW, dead even....

I was actually very happy with Stone #1, but the large bow-tie has scared me a bit.

The numbers of stone #2 have me excited, but the ASET is not as green towards the top, and the blue bow-tie may stand out a bit more. But this is the first stone I have ever purchased, so its really just a guess for me....

What I also like about Stone #2 is it belongs to Yekuitial, and he can custom make the ring for me right there all at once!

I prefer #2 because the girdle outline is more pleasing to my eye. However, some PSers like more chunky pears.

cflutist - Thank you for commenting on your choice... You should know all about pears, I bet you looked at about 1,000 before deciding on that stunning pear in your avatar... WOW. Thanks again.

I would also appreciate everyone elses comments/questions/concerns. But I feel we have a winner here...

So looks like the diamond shops are closed until Wednesday for holiday. So I will have to wait until then to make my final decision. Which is a good thing I guess. ...

Yekutial has been fantastic, I will be posting CAD's, Finished and Proposal photos. Very nervous, but very excited.

Anyone else have opinions?
