Hello All,

I've been trying to decide between two diamonds graded by IGI. Both have AGS0 and GIA excellent proportions based on HCA scores, are eye-clean, and look absolutely great. They're both also priced exactly the same!

Diamond #1 looks to be more "clean", but Diamond #2 seems to be cut better... the little arrows at 3:00 and 8:00 seem to line up more. I've posted a low zoom comparison to this post, and I will post details of both of the two diamonds in subsequent posts. Please help me decide between the two! I have about 24 hours before I have to pull the trigger on a purchase tomorrow.

The setting will be a platinum comfort fit. Thanks!

P.S. I can't figure out how to have previously updated pictures show up... so here's a thread where the two diamond choices are posted properly
