Hello all. This is my first post. If anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Would there be a noticible size difference between a stone that is 5.90X5.46X3.71 and one that is 6.07X5.70X3.82? Both are cushion cuts. Thanks so much.

What about 6.12X5.84X3.66? Much of a difference between the 5.90X5.46?

I don''t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that an increase in 20% looks noticeable. You could calculate the surface area for both and see if the surface area is 20% larger. Also, maybe you could get someone to make a photoshop comparison. I''ve seen people do that before here.

I bought two cushions recently...my mother''s is 5.76x5.90 and mine is 5.90x6.10. There is definitely a noticeable difference of size to me.

I agree you can tell the difference between these two stones side by side but I think youir setting has a lot to do with it as well. Personally I would take a tiny decrease in size if it means getting a better cut stone!
