Hate to keep adding on here but... what about the medium fluorance on two of the stones? Will it seriously effect the beauty of the stones?

Thanks again!

My opinion, but I would think more than Faint Flour in a D could make the diamond appear oily or milky.

Haven't branched out beyond rounds to be knowledgeable enough to help you otherwise.

Good Luck in your search!

#2, #3 and #4 look very nice. Faint fluorescence with D color is still fine. As for medium, well, why don't you give them a call and ask about problmes like milkyness or cloudyness? Usually medium fluor isn't an issue, but in D color it might be. Proportions are good on all stones --#1 is a bit deep and looks quite smaller, even though it's the bigger. Are you able to get a Sarin for them?

Thank you very much for your comments. As for milkyness I have asked and was assured that these particular stones do not show any. However, I will have to wait and see.

I don't believe Sarin reports are available.

I will be taking my final choice to Martin Fuller, the Northern Virginia appraser who is mentioned many times here, who will, I trust, keep me from buying foolishly.

Any comments on overall value?

Thanks again!

I can't comment too much on cut as I don't know the correct parameters for ovals. Off the cuff, I like #4 the best. I like med fluor in a G & the stone appears to be larger. I think your eyes will be able to judge which one you think is best.

Please let us know. Good luck.
