IT's for my MIL 60th birthday!

I'm looking for an M or L, SI2 or SI3 very good cut cut diamond between .96-1.1ct . Any recommendations on a good diamond?

Here are some on pricescope that have interested me:

1.01 M SI3 62.0% 62% EGL Very Good G VG N 6.29x6.31x3.90 N $1483 $1498 Solomon Brothers
1.01 M SI3 62.0% 62% EGL Very Good G VG N 6.29x6.31x3.90 N $1555 $1571 Solomon Brothers
1.01 M SI3 62.0% 62% EGL USA G VG N 6.29x6.31x3.90 N $1666 $1682 Abazias

Also any comments on the vendors (Solomn and Abazias), I have not worked with either of them.

My guess is that these are all the same diamond listed by 3 different vendors. No telling what an SI2/3 is going to
look like. Good chance it will have a visible flaw...what are your thoughts on that?

This diamond looks like it will be deep. Can you post the depth, table, crown and pavilion angles for the stone(s)?

Edit - can I ask why L/M? Why Si2/I1? What is your budget? By .96-1.1 are you just talking around a 1 carat stone?

My MIL and I both love the L and M colors and they often are cheaper? I have an SI2 with no visible inclusions, but a visible inclusion wouldn't bother me or MIL. Our max. budget on the diamond is 2,000.

Everything ty said - if you're buying an EGL SI3 you have no idea how clean it will be, and without pics/more info no idea how well it is cut - definitely want buy from a vendor w/ a generous return policy and have shipped out to view before committing to a setting, if you are set on EGL SIs.

If not - I don't know your budget, but here's a 0.9 BGD Select L SI1 $2k http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond/diamond-details/?product_id=29937317

1.01 N SI1 H&A from Infinity on HPD's listing $3.5k http://www.highperformancediamonds.com/index.php?page=view-id-diamond-infinity&id=488 (can also get Infinity stones from PS vendor www.niceice.com if you find that one has better prices/policies)

JbEG has some possibilities if you'll consider vintage stones http://www.jewelsbyericagrace.com/antique_vintage_and_reproductions_rings

ETA: okay, so the second Infinity is priced out
