I am currently looking at two H&A cut stones, but I can't make up my mind. Don't know if I should drop slightly in color (H) to get the slightly bigger stone, or stick with the slightly smaller stone (G).
My other question is whether the cut of the H color stone is superior simply because it's AGS 0? I've been reading that they have stricter/ more accurate cut standards than GIA?
The H stone has an HCA of .7 while the G stone has a score of 1.2

Anyone have any insight?

Stone 1:
G VS1 1.01 carat
GIA XXX
table: 56
depth: 61.3
crown angle: 34.5
pavilion angle: 40.8

Stone 2:
H VS1 1.11 carat
AGS 0
table: 57.4
depth: 61
crown angle: 35.5
pavilion angle: 40.6

cwt5770,

You have posted informative statistics about the diamonds you are considering - but that may not be enough. Is it possible to get reflector images of these (ASET or Ideal-Scope pics)? If you are able to post more information and those pictures you will likely get better response on this forum.
