Hello All -

I am curious to hear your opinions on the following two stones with just the GIA certificate information alone. I know that they both must be seen in-person and/or with highly magnified images to more accurately differentiate but I am interested to hear initial thoughts based on the below alone as they are very similar.

One is slightly deeper while the other will appear slightly larger face up. Does the additional depth provide anything (fire), does one have "better" inclusions" vs. the other, etc.? Please let me know your thoughts!

You cannot judge anything about fancy cut diamonds by a GIA report. Numbers could look great and the stone could be awful. You can only choose my magnified images of the stone if you are buying by distance. Ovals are notorious for having bowties, and there is no way to know that without seeing the stones. So please post images of the diamonds here and we will be happy to tell you which one is better.
