Hi guys,

I have gone through many diamonds and these are the 5 wonderful pieces that caught my eye. However, there are many pros and cons. As you can see all of them are J in color (budget issue), i hope Fluorescence does helps a bit in J colors. I actually cant see much difference from H and J. I am trying to find a balance between all these diamonds. Some have better Carats, cut etc and I am not sure which one have the best Visual look.I dont think we can see Inclusions from our naked eyes. (from our eyes point of view). I hope to find the best dimension/size for the cut.

Please give me your expert advice on the CHOICES (1st and 2nd Choice etc) and the REASONS why. I hope to find the perfect one. Thank you guys!

Welcome!

We need more info please, the crown and pavilion angles or percents for each diamond - if you could post those then we can go from there. With the last diamond the table is noted incorrectly. I would pass on the first one for sure due to the depth and table.

Between depths, tables, and symmetry grades, the last one is the only possibility for me....but GIA doesn''t list lustre. I''m assuming a jeweler threw that in. And as Lorelei said, we need table and C/P angles.

Hi! thanks for the reply.. Its 58 for table. However, I do not have the crown and pavilion angles as they are listed as 0. not sure what it means.

I went down to a jeweler again today and did a comparison with J and H, think I really notice a DIFFERENCE in color.. Kinda worried and make me wanna rethink to consider a H or I.

Carat: 0.83
Colour: J

Table: 58.00

Sorry, again we really need the crown and pavilion angles to assist you further. If the diamonds you are considering have a recent GIA report then they will be noted on it. Also GIA do not grade lustre, is it your jeweller who has noted this? Otherwise lustre is not a term GIA use.
