hi, need help selecting the correct diamond. Part of the consideration is whether to get from a jeweler locally or importing from USA.

AGS or GIA?

1.
http://www.vivodiamonds.com/rt/signature_diamonds.php?id=220227
0.531ct E VS1 AGS
Wire price SGD$3,365 + 7%GST = SGD$3,600

2.

0.52ct E VS1 GIA
Wire price US$2,688 + 7%GST + Shipping Charges = SGD$3,810

3.

0.505ct E VVS2 AGS
Wire price US$2,710 + 7%GST + Shipping Charges = SGD$3,840

I appreciate your input. Thanks !!!

I would go with #1. It's the biggest of the 3 diamonds, has an AGS000 platinum report and will cost you the least amount. I think it will be a gorgeous diamond for you.

Obviously I am not familiar with that vendor or their return or trade-up policies, but since the diamond has the AGS report and all the images, I'd say that would make the most sense if that is where you live.

Thanks for all the replies. Yes I can view the stone physically at their store, and might pick out a few VS2 as well while I'm there.

Should I be concerned about the 49% star facet length? Is it regarded as too short?

It's on the shorter end relative to the numbers commonly seen in the branded stones from WF/BGD, but since you can see the stones in person just go with your own preferences. The 0.520 CT F VS2 has numbers more commonly seen in the branded stones from WF/BGD, so it should serve as a good comparison.
