Thank you everyone - your wealth of knowledge is so amazing and I appreciate the responses and have really enjoyed learning more about the nuances of selecting diamonds from everyone.
I ended up passing on this stone as it wasn't speaking to me and have landed on two options that I feel are hitting the mark for my personal preferences. With that said, one of them (with a longer length:width ratio) has corners that don't taper all the way to the cutlet. Is this a big red flag? I've never seen this cut style before.
