Hi angelajjong,


At this price range you may have several options at your disposal.

In terms of the two stones listed below,
the E/VS1/EX/EX at $6718 does sound better
than the F/VS1/G/G/ at $7082...

This decision is based purely on the info you provided, but there is much more to making an educated diamond evaluation if you have the proper data...
