hello everyone,

Never thought diamond shopping could be so stressful :wall: But I'm doing my homework/research to find something great that I can afford. I've narrowed it down to one of these 3.

#1
Price: $16,694
2.05 carat
I color
VS1
Cut: Excellent
Polish: Excellent
Symmetry: Excellent
Fluorescence: Medium
Table: 59%
Depth: 61.2%
Crown: 34
Pavilion: 41
HCA Score: 1.8

#2
Price: $16,696
2.01 carat
I color
VS1
Cut: Excellent
Polish: Excellent
Symmetry: Very Good
Fluorescence: None
Table: 59%
Depth: 60.5
Crown: 33.5
Pavilion: 40.8
HCA Score: 1.3

#3
Price: $16,945
2.01 carat
I color

Polish: Excellent
Symmetry: Very Good
Fluorescence: None
Table: 59%

What do you guys think of these diamonds? How do they compare? Could someone provide some pros and cons for each diamond?

thanks in advance for your help.

Can you get ASET and IdealScope images?

thank you for your reply. I have requested images for the diamonds. I know those are very important, but as best you can, based on the specs for each diamond, how do they compare? Are there any obvious price or quality concerns?

There's really no point in commenting without the images, because the images will be the deciding factor. The numbers look okay but I would prefer a smaller table than 59, personally. I like a crown angle over 34, so I'd lean more towards 1 and 3. You do need to always include diameter measurements when posting the numbers, though.

hi diamondseeker. Thank you again for helping me through this process. I agree, images are important and I am waiting for them. Also, here are the measurements:

#1
8.14 - 8.18 x 4.99 mm

#2
8.12 - 8.19 x 4.93 mm

#3
8.10 - 8.17 x 4.92 mm

Are the measurements okay? Also, #2 and #3 have Excellent Cut and Polish, but the symmetry is Very Good. Is that a big negative? Or is it acceptable given the diamond specs?

Okay, the measurements are overlapping, so they will all appear the same size. So that won't be a factor! You really can tell much more about cut when you have the images. You really can't say just from knowing triple excellent or vg in one area. I'd rather have triple excellent, but we will see if any of these look better than the others when you post the images.
