Can I please get your thoughts between these 2?

.75 H VS2
62.0 depth 54.3 table
34.3 crown angle 40.7 pavilion angle
HCA= 1.0

.80 H SI1
62.1 depth 55.3 table
34.9 crown angle 40.9 pavilion angle
HCA=1.9

Any ideas on value as well?
Thank you!

Do they have GIA grading? What is the cut grade? Polish and symmetry? Diameter measurements? Any magnified photos of the stones or idealscope images? Have you seen the inclusions on the SI1? We'd need a little more info than what you have provided.

I dont see GIA on either; cut grade, polish, & symmetry on both say AGS / ideal / zero.

The .75 measures 5.78 x 5.83 x 3.60
The .80 looks like 5.93 x 5.85 x 3.69 (trying to read from a scanned AGS cert - is there a place to look up AGS numbers online if I post them?)

The .80 notes that it isn't quite a H&A (which I don't understand if the 3 cut/polish/symm grades are zeros)

I dont have the other AGS report # yet, but I am also thinking the .75 is probably the better of the 2. I haven't seen either in person yet. The .75 is asking $2900, the .80 is asking $2400...does that change your opinions at all? Are they fair prices?

Both look like good possibilities. I might opt for the VS2 for mind clean reasons. Prices are very good.

cut/polish/symmetry ideal does not mean H&A. are these diamonds in person or online? if in person I would just go look and let your eyes decide :) otherwise make sure that the SI diamond is eye-clean to your standards

So far I have only seen them online. If the .80 is not H&A is it better to go with the one that is?

no, not necessarily-it just depends on what you want. i would ask if the SI is eye-clean and then decide from there. does the 0.75 have a hearts image?

The SI1 score a 1.9 & is not H&A, so if I seee it & it is eye clean, then which is the better diamond?

The Si1 is AGS report # 104046740059

Thank you all for your help :)
