Hi All, I ask for your help. I am looking for a Princess or Cushion diamond with ideal fire. I am aware that the premium series: “a cut above”, “true hearts”, “Astor” embody these properties. Unfortunately, within my budget (2750USD) I could only identify a stone in Whiteflash “a cut above” that guarantees this. It is also my favorite so far, but unfortunately a little too small with 0.733ct.
I have now qualified a few stones at the well-known large online retailers with properties(ideal cut, excellent symmetry, excellent polish, non fluorescence). As already written on this platform, despite the best values, there is no direct guarantee with regard to brilliance/fire.
Do you see a great difference in the stones I have chosen from the “a cut above” by Whiteflash shown as a reference value? Are there cheaper or bigger in ct alternatives that are similar to Whiteflashs ? Best Price-performance ra tio ?
I would be very grateful for your assessment and I am also open to further suggestions on your part (color D-H, Clarity max VS1-SI1, carat: optimal 0.85ct, min 0.73ct)

Thank you so much !
Paying for the branded diamonds isn’t the best use of your budget. As a more cost-effective alternative to the diamond from Whiteflash, I like option 2 followed by option 1. Option 3 is just a bit out of square with a 1.05 L/W ratio and option 4 faces up relatively dark. Option 6 is a pure crushed ice radiant.
You might consider the option below. It’s the same 3 chevron princess that you’ve been selecting and matches all of your criteria. A little cleaner than option 1 and a little bigger than option 2.
