roseyflowercup :  I’ve bought a few loose diamonds from James Allen…haven’t been disappointed yet! 🙂 I just ordered a small marquise which should arrive next week. 🙂 I’m collecting different shapes! lol

I hope you love yours when you see it IRL!

I think mine is the same, but I’m not expert.

It looks pretty equal to me! The diamond actually looks a little whiter in real life than in the James Allen pictures. I do notice that the photos/360 view on the site de-emphasized a little bit of a dark area on the diamond that occurs due to it not being cut perfectly symmetrically, but I don’t mind that. Overall I’m pleased!

I am very happy with mine, even prettier in person.  Here is a side by side from the website and on my finger. 😊

I would expect the cushion you posted to be more crushed ice, with small twinkles. It looks a bit deep, so have a careful look when it arrives that it does not grey out. Cushions are very hard to choose. If you want technical help, post your stone with JA link over on pricescope rockytalky.

roseyflowercup: I am sorry I do not want to divert from the question you are asking but I just have to ask

pawneegoddess :  Is there anyway you could post some more photos of your ring? Sideview and of the pattern if possible🙏 I just purchased the matching wedding band to you e-ring now during the sale and I am really nervous how it will match my other rings, it was just so pretty I could not help myself with the lovely pattern 😍

I was very happy with my diamond with the exception of a pretty visible inclusion that was not very noticeable in the video.  It turns out one of the inclusions in the pavillion of the diamond reflects so it is visible from the top.  I will be rotating the diamond to hide the inclusions under a prong and then I will be happy.  As for the colour, I think it looks whiter in person than in the videos likely due to the level of magnification in the 360.

roseyflowercup :  What is the L/W ratio on your cushion?  I’m currently obsessed with cushion cuts while I wait for mine to be finished.

My ring/diamond was way better than expected. The pics/vids are very accurate.
