Hi everyone, Newcomer here needing some expert advice on princess cut. I am looking at around 0.8 ct and have requested ASET images for 3 of the following diamonds: https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.80-carat-e-color-vs2-clarity-sku-6736384 https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.80-carat-f-color-vs1-clarity-sku-6689431 https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.81-carat-f-color-vs1-clarity-sku-5844118 Are these diamonds well cut at all? Otherwise, please recommend some diamonds within that carat range. Appreciate all your help!
I would like to see a side by side comparison but it's not part of JA's services. While deciding between the 3 diamonds I posted earlier, I found another one that looks really nice to me judging by the video. So I requested for the ASET. It looks very symmetrical to me and more balanced between red, green, and blue/black. My only concern is the slightly lower crown height. Is that something to be worried about?

@davidelevi Thanks for the detailed explanation! It really helps a lot. I asked JA to put 0.80 F/VS1 on hold because the patterns seems the most symmetrical to me. I am going to have it in a kite setting so I thought it might look nicer. It's going to be a surprise so I'll have to make the decision. Hopefully she'll like it. At least now I know it's a nice stone so I might just go ahead with it. Regarding the "on-off" personality you mentioned, did you judge that based on the 360 video?
