They all scored well on the HCA. Personally, I would rule out #3 due to the larger table, but that is just my preference.

Can you get photos? Aset images?

Hi Juan,

The girdles are actually fine, no worries there. I like the first two best, any chance of an Idealscope image for these?

Agree, thin is just fine, only in very/extremely thin you need to worry about. I also prefer the first 2.

Of the 3 stones, my choice is #1, should be a sparkler! Girdle is fine.

And just to expound on the above, very thin or extremely thin isn't always a problem if you have a trusted vendor or appraiser inspecting the diamonds. Sometimes a very thin or extremely thin area isn't of concern if it is in a non vulnerable area of the girdle or only measures in the microns.

Unfortunately, I do not have access to any Idealscope images, nor will I be able to see any of the stones before making a purchase. But the vendor has a 30-day return policy and I''ve managed to locate an idealscope to examine whichever diamond I end up buying. Thanks for addressing my girdle concerns and for expressing your preferences. I will keep you posted.

Hi again,

I have some crude Ideal scope images, both of the same stone. Any thoughts?
