i am helping a friend purchase a diamond for his girlfriend, but it's come down to two...and i am worthless when it comes to advice right now.
they both get excellent scores on the HCA, so I was hoping diamcalc might be able to provide an idealscope image that would help the decision.
if it's not too much trouble, i'd sincerely appreciate any help.
thanks :)

Hi Buttercup :)

I think both diamonds should be nice based on these numbers. I can run cut evaluation on DiamCalc and post the ideal-scope simulations. However, taking Sarin measurement accuracy into account and limited information, the result for the real stone can be different. Besides, a few % difference in light return or leakage do not mean one diamond will look better than another.

As Garry wrote, "A score below 2 (Excellent) means you have eliminated known poor performers (more than 95% of all diamonds). Your own personal preference may be for a diamond with an HCA score of 1.5 more rather than one with a lower score of say 0.5."

I wish!

Thanks Leonid for the idealscope images, you are the greatest! I'm with you, i don't see a difference either :cheeky:
The H SI2 is a little less expensive and the inclusion plot looks a little cleaner...so maybe that's the one I'll say is better:confused:

Thanks again! ;))
