Help me choose between these two LGDs?

I'm concerned about the strain lines in the first one but I otherwise love everything about it. The second is an HPHT, which I wanted to avoid because I am afraid it will end up glowing in the dark, and has a deeper proportion than I would prefer, but I think it may be a better quality diamond overall.

I don't think you'd be able to see the strain lines in person

Not necessarily. CVD will almost always have strain lines… if it doesnt affect light performance then no worries. I have a lovely AVR from DG that has strain lines but looks just fine. Is there post-growth treatment? The HPHT says no post growth treatment so that is a plus.

What's your budget?
There's a 3.51 F VS1 for about $10.3k at TAoJ (stock# 3058626).

Here's a link to the PS search engine for 2.9+ ct Princess Cut LGDs with a max price of $10.5k:
