Out of those 3, the first one would be my choice. Closer to what I consider ideal angles. Is it eye clean?

Im not sure. Im going to call today and see if i can find out.

Or there is this bad boy below ,which seems it would be very nice. Its got a strong blue fluorescence but should make it brighter as its a colour I. I just hope its not cloudy. Hearing different things about strong fluorescence in regards to being cloudy or not.


RBC
Cut - Excellent
Carat- 1
Clarity- VS1
Colour- I
Fluorescence - Strong blue
HCA= 1.3 = Means it will sparkly a lot ?

Would this diamond give amazing performance or am I missing something. Biggest thing could be cloudyness from fluoresence ?

The last stone has the best numbers, but you are at I color and you don't know if it's at the high or low end of that color grade. I happen to like fluorescence, and it probably won't have any negative effects on a VS1 stone, but you definitely need to have that confirmed by the jeweler. It is rare to be in UV lighting so you normally won't see any evidence of the fluorescence.

Looks like that second stone is getting overly penalised by HCA; that 41.6 pavilion angle has a complementary crown angle. I like the colour, clarity & flouro better too, will certainly look brighter in sunlight & certain angles than an I / strong flouro for example...

2nd stone looks like it could be lovely, but need to see it in person of course. HCA is far far too simple to base a decision on, and the GIA report doesn't tell the whole story either although a more complete picture.
