Aww, come on! They''re so close no one could pick from these pictures...which is good for you! But I''m sure people would have preferences based on the specs!

Honestly? It''s a toss up to me, but, if I HAD to pick, I''d take the one on my left.

i like the one on the left-- there is a tighter circle in the botom, the wagon wheel is sharper, and there is more light between the spokes of the wagon wheel.

oh yeah..
tim ar GoG''s comments on the strong flour and si1:


[[email protected]] Not a chance in the world that the human eye can see those. They are so faint…this is an awesome diamond…great mixture of color and spectacular SI1 clarity.

[[email protected]] This stone is an incredibly beautiful diamond…the fluorescence does not have a negative visual impact on the stone at all…no hazyness.

I''d take the biggest? Great cut, great colour, great clarity for both... So I''d go for size.

Since it is eye clean, I would pick the F SI1. I can see the difference between F and H (although strong blue fluoro would help), but not between VS1 and SI1 w/o magnification. The size difference is too small to be a determining factor for me, so I would take the slightly cheaper stone with the better color.

Well, I love the H VS1. Maybe that''s because mine is an H VS1 from GOG!
Truly, the florescence in that stone makes it even better. I like it that it is 1.24 cts. I prefer VS over SI. Yes, I do like F and had one before, but my new diamond is an H because it looked white enough to me. If I had been looking in this size range, I honestly would have chosen this H VS1. I think it is a great stone!

For sime reason, I picked #2 w/o looking at the specs. The specs confirm it! Bigger size, good color. :) Let us know which one you pick!
