I was not able to post everything on one post.


1. Would inclusions be visible at the VS2 level clarity?

2. I noticed Stone #1 recieved a higher HCA score .6 and a lower DIY grade 2A and Stone #2 received a lower HCA 1.5 and a higher DIY grade 1B. I am a little confused about which is the better cut stone. Can anyone comment on this?

3. If the inclusions on both stones are not eye visible, which would be the better stone/value? The price is the same for both stones.

4. Can someone post a dim cal report for both stones?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Michelle
