Hey there,

I'm having a hard time deciding between these two options. I think both look good, but I wanted a second opinion. One is 0.1ct smaller but $500 more expensive - what would you do? Thanks for the help - these forums have been invaluable!

I think they are about equal in light return/leakage.
I like #2 better for its smaller table (edited)
What are the proportions?

Assuming the color/clarity is the same, my vote is #1, now. It is significant larger and possibly more spready and cheaper. If you value fire/dispersion, then the choice is #2 because of the smaller table and higher crown angle.

But both are fantastic.

Color and clarity are the same, indeed. Again, I really appreciate the second opinion.

Thank you!
