I really want the brightest diamond, and I've seen that Whiteflash A Cut Above is up there in the top few. I also came across BlueNile, Brian Gavin and James Allen.
Does anyone know if they compare to Whiteflash? I'm looking for the best optics return for my budget, and also the best size.
Must be F or Above, 1.14 Carat or above (pref 1.24), VS2 or above. Selected these 3 options, but I have no clue as to what the ASET scope (or Idealcope or N&A) pictures mean:

Comparison link:

1) 1.208 F.vs1 (12.8 K)
http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3735108.htm
2) 1.226 F.vs2 (11.5k)
http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3754132.htm
3) 1.148 E.vs2 (11.5k)


If the scintillation, brightness and fire are all more or less equal, I was thinking stone (2) 1.226 F.vs2 would be the best value for money. But I just don't know how to decipher the scope images.

Please could you help!

EDIT: I was looking for a stone that is on the TOP level of the GIA triple ex. range - are these the kind of stones I'm looking for?

I would also go wtih the 1.22 F/VS2. It almost hits the 7mm mark (biggest), F will be quite white, and it is eye-clean at a VS2.

They are all lovely stones but I think the 1.22 is the best buy of the three.

But DF, you know you are a size man...you cant deny that with that big ole asscher you wear!

Carbonquest...the other option is to call WF, have them pull the three stones and talk you through them. You obviously cant
go wrong with any of them (branded ACA stones) but they may have slighty different taste and talking to WF may help you.
