Its funny, but are you sure the depth for each one of the pair is the same? it might be a trick of the lighting, but it seems like one of each of the pairs has some extinction, but then again, it might be some kind of head reflection or some such.

I would ask the vendor what the depth is on each individual stone, so you can see if they vary significantly. I see it most pronounced in the pear pairs.
