Hi

Just wondering what your opinions on the two different diamonds attached are? Is any one better than the other or is it just a personal preference between the trade offs? img_1167_0.jpg img_1168_0.jpg

Thanks

You've missed out the important information on the certificate. Please include the whole certificate. Also run your diamonds in the HCA tool.

Ok

I'll try get copies of the whole thing. Assuming everything else is the same, would the minor decrease in size be compensated by the better colour and clarity?

Thanks

I wouldn't do SI2 for an engagement ring, if that is what it is for. D to F would not be an issue for me whatsoever, but there's quite a difference in VS1 and SI2 in clarity.

To narrow down the better GIA excellent cut stones, stay within these parameters:

table: 54-58

depth: 60-62.3

crown angle: 34-35.0

pavilion angle: 40.6-40.9

I originally purchased the ring with the centre stone .46 caret. Sent it off to get resized/remade and it came back with the second stone which is smaller but better colour and clarity. Just want to make I'm not being swindled
