Say hypothetically I were to give you only 1 stone. Which of these two would be your choice?

I''m pretty much a novice when it comes to reading the images, but the numbers of both look good to me.

OK go get a coin....GOG is heads & WF is tails........now flip the coin!!

Seriously, I think both those stones are great and very very close. Both vendors have great inspection and upgrade policies so for me I would go with the vendor that had the setting that I wanted. If you don''t need a setting.......go back to the coin.
You can''t go wrong with either!

Gosh, these are soooo close to the same! I''d choose the Good Old Gold stone for a couple of reasons, one of which is that it has the mental advantage of being 1.25 cts. and a teeny bit larger in diameter.

They seriously are pretty close, which is why I''m at a middle ground. I do like the 1.25 sound! Thanks!

coin toss too. but if price is vector in too, I would go for the GOG, better price for a slightly bigger stone.

Nice selection process, KT.


I''d agree with the others. These are really close, so the slightly larger and lower priced GOG stone would be my pick, as long as they have a setting you like.

Thanks everyone. So I''m going to be giving diamondseeker, Stonecold, Jet2k and lovestosparkle a nice 1.25 Stone and KtIceRN will get a Coin!

I''m excited and can''t wait, I hope my gf likes it enough to say yes to me! haha

What''s your take on the HCA scores for the following
http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/5705/
1.25 I VS2 HCA = 2 (Very good for all)

https://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/Whiteflash-ACA-cut-diamond-1466975.htm
1.21 I VS1 HCA= 1.1 (Very good spread, excellent all)

I''ve read that most HoA diamonds come in with a score of 2. Side-by-side, would the HCA=1.1 stone outperform the HCA=2 stone in real world conditions?
That must be where the price difference is along with the clarity?

The first one is a tiny bit weak under the table, but overall bother are very pretty. I''d probably get the cheaper stone.
