Numbers and images look pretty good. Are you setting your diamond in a halo? Because an SI2 like this one very well may not be eyeclean from the sides. A halo will hide the sides.

No, it will be in a 6 prong solitaire.

Can I ask which you would prefer between the above diamond and the following white flash? The white flash one is also an SI2 and is not perfectly eye clean. They are very similar in spread and would look the same size almost.

Well, I like the cut on the WF stone and the fact that it is SI1. However, you practically have to order these stones to look at them from top and sides to see how clean they look to you. I am sure WF would be honest. I did look at a designated non-eyeclean stone there for someone in Feb., and the stone was eyeclean to me until I looked at the stone with a loupe and could know what to look for. So they are pretty strict about using the eyeclean designation. You can ask them what can be seen from the sides. But I think with either stone, you'll need to see them in person before setting.
