Prices seem comparable to those listed on pricescope. Have you seen them in person or is this purely online? Do you have anymore information? Square or rectangle? Based solely on this, I think #2 may be the better deal, VS2 shouldn't be a problem and you save some $$ with the F and you won't be able to see the difference. But I don't know how the cuts perform. What do you want from your diamond?

Thanks.

The first diamond is 6.35x 6.1x 4.65. I plan on seeing them in person soon. I want the best quality (brilliance) overall for $9K or less and don't want to buy anything without seeing them first. The jeweler said the first diamond is a perfect cut for fitting in a Lucida-type band.

The second diamond is 7.38x 6.1. I want the same qualities as above. I think this diamond is a little too rectangular for what I'm looking for.

When you see them, try to compare them in a few different lighting situations, even a bad cut stone will have a decent amount of brilliance under bright halogen spotlights, but the better will have more brilliance in lower light. A deep stone with a large table will almost look like glass, practically lifeless.
