Hey!

After hours and hours and hours of research I’m finally between two stones. I would really appreciate any feedback.

I like option 2’s cut slightly better, as I like the smaller table size and the StoneAlgo score is slightly higher. (9.6 vs 9.4) but even at VVS2 the clouds scare me a bit. Which one would you choose?!

I would go with the second stone. The clouds won't be a problem at VVS2.

ETA: I would make sure I had good images and video, of course, to ensure it was a winner.

Thanks all- any more opinions would be very welcome. It’s a big amount of money, and really hard to tell from just online websites!!

I am shocked people aren't going bananas over the higher color (F) because DEF stones usually come at a premium. I think they both look great - good searching! Many people like the "flavor" of a smaller table if that sways your opinion.

The F sold the night before I made my decision (maybe someone on here lol), so it made my decision easy. Just purchased the G one. Thanks for all of the help everyone!!
