Hey guys, thanks again for all of your great advice. I have learned a lot from you and you have saved me from purchasing a couple of less than ideal diamonds. I have taken into consideration all of the advice I've received about ideal cut measurements, and expanded my search to land on 2 different options. The trade-off is that 1 has a "very good" symmetry, and the other has "faint" fluorescence. Need some more advice from the pros!

Diamond 1
.9 carats
D color
SI1 - crystal
Table - 58
Depth - 61.7
Crown - 35
Pavilion - 40.8
HCA score - 1.8
Polish/symm - ex
Fluor - faint

Diamond 2
.9 carats
F color
VS2 - feather
Table - 55
Depth - 61.7
Crown - 34
Pavilion - 40.8
HCA score - 1
Polish - ex
Symmetry - Very good
Fluor - none

Will the symmetry or fluorescence be noticeable? I've read online that they won't really be an issue, but I trust you guys more than an article. Thanks again for your help! I feel like I'm getting close thanks to you

The difference between faint fluor and no fluor shouldn't be noticeable at all, really. I'll let other people weigh in on symmetry. Are they the same price?

The VS2 is $140 more, pretty negligible I believe
