    Honestly, in the picture, I can’t really tell a difference.

    My opinion is it’s not worth the trade.

    Because of the way your setting swirls around the center stone, I think your current slightly-more-rectangular princess looks perfect in the setting. 

    I don’t have photoshop but maybe someone can photoshop the new stone on your current setting and see if there is a difference.

    Personally I like the current one better (it’s the celebration cut right?) I would say unless you were going .5ct or more bigger then the current stone I would keep the one you have. 

    Clarity at the levels you buy isn’t going to be noticeable and it’s the same color.  

    I say put whatever your willing to spend now into a account and wait will something noticeably bigger catches your eye and do it then

    JessMorgan777:  The stones look identical, I wouldn’t waste my money if I were you. The only reason the loose stone looks “more square” is because the prongs of your ring cover the corners of the stone.

    I can totally tell the one on the right is more square.

    I can tell that the one on the right is more square, but I think that your ring looks perfect as-is!!  And it’s unlikely you’ll really notice the difference between VS1 and VS2.

    JessMorgan777:  I agree with NEAM2014 – tuck the $$ away and wait for a bigger one to grab ya!  Unless of course you don’t ever want to go bigger, then… HMMMM okay that’s a tough decision!  I think both stones are gorgeous, but I REALLY love your current stone.  I think it’s not enough of a diffrence to warrant the cost to switch out.  BUT that being said, I totally understand seeing what others don’t and little details like that drive me to drink!  So go with your gut!  🙂
