Thank you for the help, I originally purchased a stone at Shane Co, and was not happy with it and got great guidance from you all and returned it planning to buy a super ideal cut online.

I thought I had my selection between 2 stones on WF, but then looked at Brian Gavin this evening and they have 8% off the size range of stone I am looking for currently (1.25-1.5).. and have a very pretty stone in the same price range after discount. What do you all think... neither of WF are ACA. I would assume Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows is comparable to ACA (key word assume), but did not see anyone bring them up in my previous post on my Shane Co diamond.

I had WF send me pictures of their stones side by side, see below... which would you all choose between the 3? Going into a cushion shaped halo.

Y'all are awesome & thank you :)

1.337 I VS1 Hearts and Arrows Round- $9,289

I will let the people much smarter than me address the diamonds but BGD is awesome and I have bought from both. I think you are right in your assumption as I believe Brian Gavin developed the cut above and co founded Whiteflash prior to starting his own site some years ago. ;-) You will be very happy with diamonds from both companies but again I will let the experts address your specific stones. I am currently awaiting the stone in my avatar from BGD but have ordered earrings before from BGD and custom jewelry and prior ACA with very similar stats to yours above years ago (1.311 G VVS2 ACA). Good luck, you cannot go wrong with either company.

.....and I also used the coupon code (was only 7% then) at BGD so I think great deal!

What did WF say about the clarity on the G? I think the G is a really good value. I would ask for a video on it so you can check the inclusions.

I also like the WF 1.39. If you think you may want to upgrade some time down the road you only have to pick out a stone that cost more than
your current stone at WF. Other vendors are not that easy.
