Hello -

I am picking between the two below. The two certs are attached. I also attached two pictures, both with the 2.69 H VS1 on the left and 2.34 G VS1 on the right. The first is in our normal photo setup with fluorescent light and the second is in a normal room in front of a south facing window on an overcast day (only lit by indirect sun). The camera settings and everything else are the same, with the lighting and environment as the only difference.

I appreciate any advice on this.

Do you have other pictures by chance? It's a bit difficult to see the details of the diamonds. How does the cut, color, and clarity compare?

The larger stone has a better polish, however it looks like there may be a bow-tie effect?

Welcome to the forum :)

Some nice size stones there!

I'm glad you have them in hand to assess them with your own eyes - that is sometimes the best test we can do.


As mentioned, though, additional pictures would be useful.

May I ask if you are able to replicate the second picture but with a bright red (or other strong colour) background behind it? Perhaps a bit of coloured card or a plain-colour christmas napkin? The idea being to check how much red you can see through the stone, therefore how much leakage they have. With a white background, it is hard/impossible to tell what is reflected light and what is leakage :)

Do the stones have a dark 'bow-tie' across the middle facets when face-on to you?

An ASETscope would be most useful in working out what is leakage and how they might perform, but I appreciate it would be an additional cost and would likely take time to arrive, which may put you beyond any window for Returns.

Hi thanks for the reply. I actually don't have them in person but I asked that the 2.69 be shipped to me so i can evaluate it. See below for the other videos I have. I can send more once i receive it.

2.69

The faceting of each looks similar but the lighting environment being used does not appear conducive to showing any contrast/obstruction - it's therefore hard to tell whether bow-tie will be an issue (IMHO).

It's great that you'll be able to assess it in person - if you don't have an ASETscope then the aforementioned trick of putting coloured card or similar behind the stone will help show any leakage as the stone moves :)

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts when it is in-hand!
