I'm at the end of my process, and am trying to decide b/t 2 diamonds. Any help would be much appreciated.

Both are GIA certified, round brilliant.
#1: 1.52 carat; 61.5% depth, 58% table; D; SI1; polish: good; symmetry: good; no fluorescence or culet; thin to medium, faceted girdle.

#2: 1.53 carat; 63.4% depth, 54% table; F; VS1; very good, very good; no fluorescence or culet; thin to medium, faceted girdle.

The price for each is about the same, around $13,000 (#1 is slightly cheaper), and is not the issue for me. I just want to pick the better diamond. Thanks for your help.

Could you also post Measurements? It'd also help if you can ask you vendor for Sarin or Megascope measurements of crown and pavilion angles.

Thanks for responding. I've included the measurements (and the other info) below:

Both are GIA certified, round brilliant.
#1: 1.52 carat; 61.5% depth, 58% table; D; SI1; polish: good; symmetry: good; no fluorescence or culet; thin to medium, faceted girdle; 7.39-7.43x4.56 mm.

#2: 1.53 carat; 63.4% depth, 54% table; F; VS1; very good, very good; no fluorescence or culet; thin to medium, faceted girdle; 7.35-7.42x4.68 mm.

Hope this helps. (I don't have the other info yet.) Thanks again.

Without crown and pavilion angles I can only speculate...

Stone #2 might be a bit deep (63.4% total depth). It might be light leaking stone but without crown and pavilion angles there is no way to be more specific.

It also have smaller diameter. Tolkowsky stone of that carat size would be 7.49 mm in diameter - not 7.39 mm.
