Hi,

After countless hours of educating myself on this site I have narrowed my decision down to 2 AVC's in my price range. Anyway I am looking for some feedback on which diamond others would choose. Sarah has confirmed that both diamonds are "eye clean" so for me it is the battle between size or color.

Diamond #1
Carat Weight: 0.83ct
Color: F
Clarity: SI2
AGS Light Performance: Ideal
Polish: Excellent
Symmetry: Excellent
Width: 5.59mm
Length: 5.79mm
Depth: 3.66mm

Diamond # 2
Carat Weight: 0.91ct
Color: J
Clarity: SI1
AGS Cut Grade: Ideal
AGS Light Performance: Ideal
Polish: Ideal
Symmetry: Ideal
Width: 5.62mm
Length: 6.06mm
Depth: 3.79mm

I have reserved this one so I guess I am leaning towards it.


I look forward to hearing back others opinions because right now I am being very indecisive.

Thanks!

First off, if you're very serious about these two, PLEASE put them on hold so they dont get bought out from under you. I see the J SI1 is on hold right now, perhaps thats you.

Now that thats said... ;-)
I prefer the F SI2 for a couple of reasons. First, its more of a square shape which is of course a matter of taste- you may prefer a slightly more rectangular shape. But secondly, and more importantly- I think the ASET of the F SI2 is definitely more promising. Less light leakage, more red ;-)

The size difference is small.

If the F, SI2 is truly eye clean, that'd be my pick.

I think they are both good candidates. I prefer the F for the square shape. If it is eye clean then this would be my choice. If it were me, I would ask Jon at GOG to do a side by side video, this will hopefully help you decide one way or the other.

I like square shape, but the size difference might make me go with the J. Do you have side-by-side pictures? If not, I suggest asking.

I prefer the square shape of the F, but the color of the J. Some people will disagree with me, but I definitely prefer the lower colors on the AVCs...it's just more complimentary to the cut IMO.

I like this one...the two you have are on hold so I can't see the prices, but this is a .92 K VS2. The size is bigger than both of the ones you're looking at, only one color grade lower than J, very comfortable clarity range and square.
