From the way you are describing it, you don’t seem entirely sold on this one.

I’m working through it in my head.

I simply cannot understand why that stupid blue box is still haunting me!

Which is bizarre because

I consider myself an educated diamond consumer.

I am even considering getting my gemologist degree for crying out loud!

The 3 carat cushion ticks all my boxes yet there is still something about the allure of that dang blue.

That, plus the one color grade higher (it’s E, cushion is F).

That said, I spent today doing all my due diligence and I think I’ve almost exorcised the Tiff at this point.

Primarily simply because it’s so significantly smaller.

Is the Tiffany as wide as this one? This one seems longer but thinner but I’m just looking at pics. I’m not helping lol but between the two I like the Tiff.

In the first photo it definitely looks oval-ish to me. Not a bad thing. Not sure how I feel about the facets. Nice that you can test drive it a bit. Is this the same jeweler that has the Tiff Lucida?

You don't seem sold. It seems like you really would prefer the Tiffany ring. It's a big purchase. If you have any doubt, I wouldn't keep this one.

I personally prefer this one to the Lucida, but that doesn't matter here.

I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate your input!

So I think I’m sold on the cushion, then I wobble back to the Tiff.

I’ve thought long and hard and think part of the problem is the Tiff is a full 1 1/2 sizes too small so difficult to fully see on my hand.

That does make a difference.

Going to bed now so will sleep on it (again).

Thank you all so much stay tuned and all advice welcome!
