by orangechair » Mar 7, 2018 Hi all, I'm choosing a radiant remotely, and I'm an absolute amateur at this stuff...so I'm sure I am making mistakes, etc. I was hoping to get as many opinions from three finalists as possible. I have a gallery here: Radiant I'm still getting details for one of them, but here are the rough stats: 2.01 F VVS1, Sym: EX, Table 66%, Depth 67.5%, Thick Girdle, 1.26 L/W @ 22.5k 2.40 E VS2, Sym: VG, @ 30k 2.54 G VS2, Sym: EX, Table 67%, Depth 70.9%, Very Thick Girdle, 1.31 L/W @ 29.5k I've attached GIA for 2.01. GIA for 2.54 is here . You can see the cloud region in the diagram, but I'm not seeing it in the image or video. You guys think it is safe to ignore? I'm happy with all choices but here are some concerns/questions, and these are the things I'd love to hear feedback/confirmation on the most: The 2.01 seems to be the nicest quality overall but smaller. However, there seems to be a bit of a stronger bowtie effect. Is this just a lighting trick? The 2.40 had a pretty noticeable "right-side only" bowtie to me. I was wondering if this were related to the symmetry. I'm somewhat putting this one last out of the three because of that. Should I worry about the depth of 70.9% for the 2.54? The 2.54 also seems to have a bit more of a yellow tinge compared to the others. That seems expected given the G color vs E/F color. Is this as noticeable in real life, or is it a lighting trick? The 2.54 seems to have the most "facets". One thing I noticed in the GIA reports is that the 2.54 seems to have facets that are more evenly spaced in surface area compared to the 2.01. Is this considered more or less desirable? I have video I could share if this would be more helpful and if there is interest. Thanks in advance. Looking for relatively quick feedback if possible.
