NOT AN EXPERT, but wondering why you'd consider paying an additional price for a "very good" cut against an AGS ideal cut? It is more $ because it's an F color not an H, but they're both SI1 clarity, so if they were both eye clean, personally I would go with the ideal cut. H is pretty white.

Are they eye clean?

Given those prices though I think you can find better diamonds.

Any other choices available? Both are far too steep. Pavilion angle should be <=41°. Neither one would have good light performance.

The second is terrible. So if the first.

I choose: do not waste your money.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Why would the the diamond that is ideal in all three facets of the cut be terrible. Having trouble understanding this.
