Hello everyone. I've narrowed my choices down to 2 diamonds and I really need your help. Which one of these would you choose? :D

Diamond #1
SHAPE: Round
CARAT WEIGHT: 1.01
COLOR: E
CLARITY: IF
CUT: Excellent
POLISH: Excellent
SYMMETRY: Excellent
FLUORESCENCE: None
L/W/D (MM): 6.38*6.42*3.98

L/W RATIO: 1.01
DEPTH %: 62.20
GIRDLE: Medium
TABLE %: 55.00
CULET: None
CERTIFICATE: GIA
CROWN ∠: 34.50
CROWN %: 15.50
PAVILION ∠: 40.60

PAVILION %: 43.00

Diamond #2
SHAPE: Round
CARAT WEIGHT: 1.00
COLOR: E
CLARITY: IF
CUT: Excellent
POLISH: Excellent
SYMMETRY: Excellent
FLUORESCENCE: None
L/W/D (MM): 6.44*6.45*3.90

L/W RATIO: 1.00
DEPTH %: 60.60
GIRDLE: Medium - Slightly Thick
TABLE %: 58.00
CULET: None
CERTIFICATE: GIA
CROWN ∠: 34.00
CROWN %: 14.00
PAVILION ∠: 40.60

PAVILION %: 42.50

The length on diamond #2 is 6.44 as opposed to 6.38 on Diamond #1. Will this make a visible difference. Also Diamond #2 has a slightly thick girdle compared to the medium girdle of Diamond #1. And last will the depth of 60.60% on diamond #2 be much better than the depth of 62.2% from diamond #1? I read the smaller this number the larger the diamond appears when looking down on it.

Both Diamonds score 0.7 on HCA with excellent in all categories (light return, fire, and scintillation) except for spread. Both score very good here.

Tough decision here. I need your help. I am looking to propose very soon :)

Unconditional,

As a trade member I cannot comment on or recommend specific diamonds but I am a bit surprised you have not gotten any feedback on your two options. If it is possible to obtain light performance images (Ideal-Scope or ASET) and attach those images to your thread you may find greater response.

Best!

Why, may I ask, are you going for such high color and clarity?

Is it a cultural thing?
