Hello,

I am shopping around for about a 1.5ct center stone for an upgrade setting. My specs are a round brilliant H&A, ideal cut, either I/J, with clarity Si1 or Si2 which is eye clean facing up. I understand that medium to strong fluorescence will make an I/J colour appear whiter, so that would be a bonus. You'll see that all the stones below are I/SI1, but I would consider dropping either one colour grade or clarity grade if all other specs are exceptional.

I believe there's usually a discount of 10% offered on the e-ring/w-band settings if the stone is purchased from the same vendor, so ideally I would like to go that route. I'm leaning towards the "Ada" setting from ERD with some modifications, but I currently prefer the center stones at James Allen.

I am considering the following from James Allen, Whiteflash and ERD. I would appreciate any advice/comments. Unfortunately GOG doesn't seem to have anything that meets my criteria.

Thanks!!

I would find out which ones are eye-clean from the vendors and repost with the eye-clean ones.
