So I've narrowed it down to 2 rings. The 2 main difference between the two is color and clarity. Both are eye clean, however there is a $500 difference between the two. So I am wondering if the F color warrants a $500 premium or will the color be negligible to the eye. I’ve attached the IS pic to. All opinions are welcome...thank you in advance.

Color difference is negligible, most will not be able to tell the difference once set without comparison.

Cost is also due to the 0.03c difference in weight.

Prefer the G VS2's hearts image, F SI1 looks a little off but that could be due to image taking.
