Hello everyone! I am so glad I found this website. I have learn so much in the past day on this site. I can't decide which diamond to get. What is most important to me is having the diamond shine and beautiful. The first diamond looks beautiful. My concern is reading that the depth and table should be in within a certain percent for the best look and the symmetry is not excellent. The second is 2k more which is what we originally budgeted for. I love that it is a larger carat but again the depth and table really confuses me not being in within the percentage from what I am reading and also I did see inclusion in the diamond.

I can't decide which is the better diamond or if I should keep looking. Please help!!!

The G is too deep. If you want input on stones you also need to post the crown and pavilion angles.

These are the parameters you want to stay within:

Table 53-58
Depth no more than 62.2
Crown angle 34-35
Pavilion angle 40.6 - 40>9

Unfortunately, the stones you are considering are outside of one or more of these parameters. Have you seen the stones in person?
