Between the two, I will take E VS2, if truly eye clean.

I do not know who the vendor is, but if you are considering F VVS2, I rather drop the clarify couple grades and go with GOG Ascendency or WF ACA and get better cut+protection on my investment.

I do not shop diamonds at this price range, but this is what I would do if I am spending 30k on a colorless diamond.
