You need pics. Why don''t you start with their in-house stones?

The second seems a little shallow. I like the first and third which seem ok on paper. The pavilion angle should be between 40.5 to 40.9 for ideal and the crown 34.3 to 34.8. Also for some reason shallow stones usually score under a low on the HCA. You might be able to save a little money and go down in color. A G will look almost the same as a F or even E. I was actually looking at the G''s and want a 2ct. But with a budget of 16k it was really hard to get anything, so I ended up with an I. The stone to me look also the same as a G for much less then a G. I would go to the B&M and see some stone in person and see what color you are comfortable with.

I agree, we need an IS image or ASET to really say. Just based on the certs, I''d pick #3.

I also wonder why not go in house, there are choices, made much easier!

This is gorgeous, but has strong blue fluorescence. You would need to see if it affects the stone. If not, it''s definitely a winner.

If you don''t mind a G, which won''t show any color at this size, there''s this one.
