2nd one if its eyeclean.
G for the same price as the J and I like the angles better.
But I would need a red scope images or ASET images and heart photos to make the final decision.

Lucky you, getting to go to GOG!!

Since you get to see them in real life, I would say pick the one that speaks to you. Forget the numbers.


Just compare them all in as many light settings as you can. Your eyes will tell you which one to pick.

Please come back and let us know how it went and which one you got. And have fun!

Since you are seeing them in person, Ellen''s advice is spot on. Have a chat to the salespeople and learn about diamonds at the same time.

However, I agree with storm. a ''G'' colour grade is several steps higher than an I / J and most colour sensitive people can tell the difference. If the price wasn''t that significantly different and the stones are all ideal cut, pick the better stone.
