The GIA one has a shallow crown and deep pavilion.

I''d go for the AGS ACA

I like the second one better. I''m a sucker for the higher crown angle. For me, they seem to throw off more light. And in an ACA, you aren''t going to notice more than a tinge of warmth in the stone.

I would probably go with the ACA then unless the color is really bothering you. What is the clarity grade for the 2 stones, btw?

sorry didn''t mention the clarity.. both SI1.... think the cut on the ACA will perform better than the J Ideal? so think the K will be ok?

Yes, I think the ACA will perform better.

Any reason you''re going with a K though? Don''t get me wrong, I do love them (and own one) but just want to make sure that you understand that the color will show in some situations. Especially if you go with an open setting where you can see the pavilion.

i saw some beautiful K stones on here, and thought why not get a larger stone with ideal cut, and less premiums and my setting is yellow, but i''m still unsure if my setting will make it even more yellow? still contemplating
