Happy Thanksgiving. I''m trying to finish up my search and have listed some options here. I am mostly interested in the first 3, but I have included 2 additional for comparison purposes. Will #4 and #5 really look 20% better than #1-3? Is the price of these in line with their quality? Is the 1.04 ratio in #3 noticable? Thanks for any insight that you care to offer.

I am afraid every time i have tried to use #''s to discriminate between the cut quality and appearance of princess cuts I have failed.
I do not believe BN use anything other than #''s to deleniate their different grades. the cheapest could easily be the best.

The girdles all seem OK - my main initial check.

Some people say the table # should be smaller than the depth %. but i have seen enough eg''s the other way
