    Hello Community!

    It's my first time posting here, I am very excited by choosing a diamond to give to my future fiancé.

    I am looking a diamond with the following specs:

    Price: Between $4K and $5K
    Size: As close to 1 carat as possible
    Cut: Ideal
    Clarity: Eye clean, VS1 or VS2
    Color: I or J

    I found the following diamonds that match the above specs:

    https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-4092503.htm


    Can you please help me decide between them? Other suggestions are also welcome.

    Thanks! :twirl:

    WF is being weird for me right now so I can't see ASET/IS, but both look really nice to me, unless there's something crazy hiding in the advanced images.

    I would probably choose based on my intended's color sensitivity, price, and upgrade policies. Unless a J wouldn't work for her, I would go for the less expensive one with the better upgrade policy (WF).

    Thank you very much.

    Attached are the advanced images that I can see in their page.

    They look weird to me, any comments?

    Thanks. hearts-and-arrows-round-diamond-ags-104104712003-hearts-157893.jpg hearts-and-arrows-round-diamond-ags-104104712003-aset-157891.jpg hearts-and-arrows-round-diamond-ags-104104712003-diamond-157892.jpg hearts-and-arrows-round-diamond-ags-104104712003-idealscope-157894.jpg

    Looks good...what do you think is weird?

    If you plan on upgrading in the future, WF has the easier upgrade between the two. Just spend a $1 more. With the other vendor, you have to upgrade
    2 or more specs (like size and color).

    Thank you for your feedback. I didn't notice this before. Isn't this something negative as it will look smaller?

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    I said that because I noticed the H&A image doesn't have white hearts but a light red color.

    there are different coloured H&A scopes out there. I have seen blue and red ones. It’s a normal hearts image.
