I plan to buy a RB diamond. I found 3 stones that look nice to me. Now I want to hear some wise advice from PS :twirl:

stone1: 1.02 F VVS2 13,286 GIA HCA: 1.0
stone2: 1.02 E VS1 14,385 GIA HCA: 1.3
stone3: 1.03 E VS1 13,540 AGS HCA:1.9

Which one looks better? Or, none of them and you have better stone recommended for me? :twirl:
Any advice is highly appreciated, thank you!!!

#2 and #3 look good on paper. I don't think I'd pay the higher price of #2, though, so I suppose my choice would be #3.

Thank you diamondseeker2006! I just updated the HCA scores for the three stones. Stone3 is from jamesallen, so I can get it with PS discount so the price will be 12863. Is this a good deal?

Yes, tons and tons. To narrow it down, are you thinking solitaire, side stones, halo, ..... ?

not halo...Both Solitaire and side stone look nice. if I choose side stone, do the side stones need to be in the same color/clarity range with the central stone?

Thank you Dreamer_D! Will the HCA score be a problem for stone3?
