I vote the first one, I don’t like how in the second one the outer most edges look clear/white while the rest is yellow. I like the consistency of the first one better 🙂

I agree with previous posts, definitely the first one. The color is much more consistent throughtout the stone. It’s much nicer.

no doubt number 1 based on the photos. However could just be the light and angle that makes the second appear inconsistently colored and less vibrant.

i worked for a diamond supplier for six months. I like the first cushion because the radiant demonstrates light leakage and windowing (and green tint possibly fluorescence). Issue is diamond dealers don’t care about light performance, they sell yellow fancies with a cup under the diamond in the ring to make it more intense. I hate that it cannot be cleaned or steamed from that point on and becomes dull and lifeless over time. Be sure your jeweler at least opens a hole under the basket to let in light and for maintanance over time.

Atleast from the pictures the first one appears to have less visible inclusions, better color and saturation and as another poster mentioned the second looks to have a questionable cut with alot of leakage.
