Oops, I meant for the topic to be "Which stone? (2 OECs and a cushion)" oh well...

Of course, I turn to pricescope for some stone wisdom;-)

I have 3 stones here:
1. 1.02 carat OEC L/VS2 (most expensive)
2. 1.14 carat OEC K/SI3 (flaw could be covered with a prong & culet is slightly off center, but it is not notice-able in person)
3. 1.36 carat cushion N/SI1

They have all been pre-screened for me and are nice in person. They were referred to as "fireballs." trying to figure out which ones/one I really want to focus on. I figured some of you eagle eyes could help!
Stone 1 is a little out of my budget, but, I could go the extra mile for The One.

Oh, and the photo of stone 1 and 3 are not as magnified as the picture for stone 2, as I am sure you can tell!

I''m not a fan of #3 and that flaw on #2 is pretty big to be completely covered IMO. I also think the pattern is nicest on #1. So I vote #1!

Either 1 or 3. They are too different to choose as one is an OEC and the other is more like an OMC. I would not even consider 2 due to the huge inclusion which probably cannot even be completely hidden by a prong. The off center culet looks worse due to the kozibe effect,

Something''s wrong with the shape of #3. And I doubt if #2 is eye-clean. I have to go with No.1.
