From what I read here IGI Antwerp is on par with GIA. Without IS images I think the 35.5 crown angle is the safer bet.

Looks like a nicely matched pair from the numbers, numbers fine for both :sun:

Any pics, or scan w/ angle spreads?

They are sealed and the seller wants 10600$ and 9000$. Is it a correct price?

The prices sound fine. Are you getting one for a ring and one for another piece of jewelry? Just curious.

Those look to be competitive enough prices if you decide to rely on the grading. As I’m sure you know, that’s the big deal. We can’t see the stone and neither can either you or the selling dealer. You’re 100% at the mercy of IGI-Antwerp. It shouldn’t be hard to find other Antwerp dealers to shop them against if you’re fixed on the idea of shopping there for whatever reason. They’re plentiful. You can also compare their prices with online competitors. I agree with the above that GIA is the most directly competitive lab in terms of grading. There’s generally a premium associated with shopping in Belgium but it’s not usually all that much if you’re an aggressive shopper. On the other hand, it’s possible to get skinned if you’re not careful (there and anywhere else by the way).
