Well Darin from JamesAllen.com was able to help me out. I am deciding between 2 diamonds right now and would like to purchase by tomorrow. I have come here for opinions, especially on the idealscope images as I have no clue what to look for. I will also post at the bottom the last email he sent me with his suggestion. Do you agree with what he said? Thank you so much for anyone who responds!!!

Idealscope on next post (Can''t do two pics on one post??)

Both diamonds are about the same price ($6650 after PS discount)

Here is what he sent me today...
"I was able to get you Idealscopes for 1210083 and 1221078. As you can see from the images both diamonds have very little light leakage and nice symmetry. However 1221078 performed ideally, with excellent symmetry and the least amount of leakage, this would definitely have superior performance. The other just falling short with very good symmetry and a bit more leakage. When compared by my Gemologist she automatically said 1231066 was a bit on the dull side, while 1210083 was full of life, the inclusions could be found but pronged. The most impressive was 1221078, awarded AGS triple 0, it graded the highest based on performance, was completely eye-clean, and icy white. This diamond is definitely fiery, and would be your best choice of the three.

Please let me know what you think,

Thank you,"

Let me know your thoughts, opinions, questions, etc. It will be greatly appreciated. Btw 1231066 was a 1.45 C for about a thousand more but I shouldn''t consider that right?

Given that the 1.46 was described as "dull", I wouldn''t get that one. Of the ideal scope images the first one shows more leakage under the table. You should keep in mind the disscussion of the stones though.

Of the two you posted, I like the second IS image better. As kcourselle mentioned, the first has more leakage. You''ll get better performance out of the second.

Thanks, I agree. Someone from PS earlier suggested this diamond...
White Flash

How do you feel about going down to grade I color? Also, How is its idealscope image?

I don''t like the IS for the first diamond, the second and third images look good.
