Lab grown dealers who have access to sourcing or cutting geometric cuts?

I am trying to source a carre or lozenge-cut diamond for a project. Possibly a step-cut shield as well In the future, but specifically a carre or lozenge right now. I’ve seen a few of these pop up on IG but are never available. The only source I can seem to find is DiamondFoundry, but they don’t seem to work with customers -- only dealers.

Can anyone give me any leads on someone who could source from DF, or who has access to these shapes? I reached out to Ouros for a quote to cut-to-specifications, but compared to his other carat/color/clarity stones, the price he quoted was a pretty hefty premium for a non-traditional cut (around 2k above his similar stones in traditionally demanded cuts.). I’d like to get a frame of reference for that cost, or see if there are a few other options available before I request a stone to be cut to my specifications.

I can't say I've seen that many non-traditional cuts of lab stones so I can understand why cutters might put a premium on them. If you don't like the cut, it may be hard for the vendor to sell the stone to anyone else.

Only thing you can perhaps do is look at the price of such cuts of mined stones and work from there. If there isn't much of a price difference, you might be better off selecting a mined stone.
