Hello Gonnadoit, :))

Data for all the diamonds looks great. I don't think somebody can give more accurate analysis without seeing the diamonds.

#2 has a bit deeper pavilion, which caused lower HCA score and can be a negative factor. However, keep in mind that Sarin measurements have +/-0.1 degree error for pavilion measurements so all the differences are within this error.

Some may say that #4 is just in 1 carat range, which causes its price per carat jump. It has a bit thicker girdle than the others probably to get into 1 carat range. But again, everything else looks kosher based only on the info provided.

Seems like we are splitting hairs here :))

Thanks for the quick view. I think your right, we are spliting hairs (or atoms!). This is why I posted it, because I have racked over it for a while and was going for the third opinion.:bigsmile:
