Welcome!

I prefer the first two, is it possible to get ASET or Idealscope images for the diamonds? Also I take it you prefer very high colour and clarity? Just to let you know, you can lower both if you wish without visual sacrifice but this is a personal preference.

Are these for sale with an online vendor, or store jeweller?

Thanks Lorelei and Ellen for your input.

They are all an a jewellery store so I had a look at all of them. They are all very similar in visual characteristics, except for the size.

It looks like stone3 is not as symmetrical with (6.52-6.64 x 3.89), compare to the other 2. Stone1 and 3 has a pinpoint on pavillion facet and stone2 has internal graining.

Should I be worried about internal graining when it''s graded as a vvs1? I''ve read that not long ago the labs would grade stone with internal gaining as Internal Flawless, if it''s not too visible.

I know that I can get a stone lower in color and clarity, and to the eye I will never know the difference. But how I see it, a stone like this is like an investment, Diamond price has never really gone down.

I''m leaning towards stone2.

Thanks,
Mark

The first 2 diamonds look promising. With the inclusions there are no worries with VVS clarity. The third diamond does show a larger diameter variance than I personally prefer. Also diamonds are not good investments financially - so don''t buy one thinking that you would get any kind of financial return on it if you sold it, as regardless of the quality it is usual to only recoup around 30 - 50% of what was paid for it.
