Is the larger diamond worth the price jump?

    It looks like the difference is only like $200, and .1 mm shouldn't be noticible. Why don't you ask WF to send pics/videos of both? Probably most people would say to go with the G color, but I'd let your eyes decide.

    I like the proportions better on the 1.244 ct with the smaller table.

    I would go with the higher color any day. I traded down .5 ct in size in order to get the highest color I could buy. But I'm very color sensitive. Do you know your color sensitivity?

    Depends do you what whiter versus the mind thing of having 7mms in size. Me I'd mostly always go for size over colour in diamonds, but not always.

    Like what others have said, what’s your priority? High colour or larger stone?

    I’m not particularly colour sensitive so the larger H coloured stone appeals to me more. As for cut and proportions, both stones are stunners.

    Here is a virtual comparison of your two diamonds:
    https://www.diamdb.com/compare/1.36ct-round-7.08x7.1x4.38-vs-1.24ct-round-6.92x6.93x4.25/

    You have to decide, based upon the visual difference, whether or not the larger diamond is worth the extra cash. You also have to consider color sensitivity, and preferences pertaining to table size.
    If this were me, I’d go with the 1.244G. I enjoy the F-G range, and the 0.12mm difference just doesn’t justify spending money that I could put into a setting.
    You can’t go wrong with an ACA from WF.
    Either choice is fabulous.

    You really need side-by-side photos. I personally would go with size over color. You're only talking 1 color grade but it is also only a slight size
    difference. Get images so you can see for yourself. That should help you decide which stone to go with.

    Edit...I consider the $200 price difference to be irrelevant.
