Diamond 1: Available from local jeweler for $9,300

I have a couple concerns about the ASET image not looking super clean and the proportions give it an HCA of 4. However, it's an AGS0 for light performance, so maybe that's the overriding factor? I have no seen the diamond in person yet.

Diamond 2: Online, for $9,100

Also an AGS0. Honestly everything looks pretty good from what I can tell. My only question would be that it's a VS2 but seems really clean, like too clean? Don't know if there's something missing or I'm just not seeing the issue.


Thanks for any input!

My $0.02.

I would go with the JA one! It looks really nice and I just love having the numbers in the super ideal range to say that it is. The idealscope and hearts image also look great on it.

The inclusion plot looks too clean because the JA copy of AGS reports always seem to make the marks too light colored. Here is the report on AGS http://www.agslab.com/pdf_sync_reports/104090302007-PLDQR.PDF It has a feather visible from the pavilion and I do not think it's "too clean" for a VS2.

Thanks for the input, I went with the JA stone. Interesting that their version of the clarity plot looks lighter, but the AGS version looks more like what I'd expect.
