    I'm looking at two diamonds which (on paper) seem almost completely the same to me, but one is about $450 dollars cheaper. Does the slight difference in color make the difference? or is it the slight loss of spread? If I were to see these two, how likely is it that I could tell them apart? :confused:

    1:
    Weight = 0.63
    Clar = VS2
    Symetry = Excelent
    Polish = Excelent
    Cut advisor = 0.8-ex (ex-ex-ex-vg)
    Color = G
    Culet = vs
    Girdle = 1.3

    2:
    Weight = 0.63
    Clar = VS2
    Symetry = Excelent
    Polish = Excelent
    Cut advisor = 0.4-ex (ex-ex-ex-ex)
    Color = F
    Culet = pt
    Girdle = 1.2

    PS sorry if this post didn't get formate correctly. I think it's because I'm on a MAC. :blackeye:

    The difference in color will have an effect on the price. As for the look of the diamond, that depends on the cut. It is possible for there to be differences in brilliance, fire and scintillation between the two stones. Perhaps if you post all of the measurements (in angles) available to you, someone here will be able to give a better guess as to the differences between the stones. The only sure way to tell which you'd prefer is to see them both and compare in both dim and natural daylight.

    Good luck :)

    Both look pretty good on paper. f/g is no big deal - should account for about 8% difference at the most.
