Which Oval is better?

Hi again!

I decided to return a previous stone because of the pronounced bowtie. Now, I am trying to decide between these two Oval diamonds:

https://www.bluenile.com/diamond-details/LD13392475

https://www.bluenile.com/diamond-details/LD13586498

I like everything about the first stone except for the L/W ratio (prefer a 1.5 ratio). However, the second one is good but there is a medium fluorescence (which I am not adverse to but prefer not to have). I guess the deciding factor would have to be the cut of the diamond, mainly which bowtie is less prominent.

Any help deciding would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
Jumping on here whilst home schooling is on a tiny lunch break.

Based on what you wrote, not the images, I believe that these are not the stones for you.

for me, when I choose a stone, it has to jump out of the screen and hit me square between the eyes or it pulls at my heart strings. And when you describe said stone, it should sound quite giddy.

your description of either stone above, do not sound like they hit all the spots for you. Or you Maybe choosing to settle on either one of these stones.

if timing allows- search again.
I am terrible at searching stones, I tend to skim the pictures and when something pops out of the screen, it is placed on a shortlist and then I go analysis paralysis on it.

I am hoping others will chime in with other stones.

I think you should continue looking. Also, I would also look beyond Blue Nile.

This is a beautifully cut oval


I haven’t seen anything that really matches what you are looking for, if you are able I would wait until this pandemic is over as there will be more options available

I’m not an oval expert but I like the look of this one (and the price). Might be worth requesting the report.


Edited to add:

this is one is pretty too!
