    I'm looking for a triple ex single diamond to set onto a 18k white gold earring, and want to find one that will have the most fire and scintillation for my money.
    I used the HCA tool to narrow down my search to 3 particular diamonds, all of which have scores below 2.

    So my question is, what is the next step once you have eliminated the poor performers?

    Also, in your opinion, if you had to sacrifice between clarity, carat and colour, how would they rank in terms of importance for an earring?

    Here are the three diamonds in question:

    1.http://www.bluenile.com/uk/round-diamond-1-carat-or-less-signature-ideal-cut-f-colour-vs2-clarity_LD03111724

    2.http://www.bluenile.com/uk/round-diamond-1-carat-or-less-signature-ideal-cut-f-colour-si1-clarity_LD03107120

    3.http://www.bluenile.com/uk/round-diamond-1-carat-or-less-signature-ideal-cut-g-colour-vs2-clarity_LD03010679

    Also, can anyone confirm whether the diamonds supplied by Blue Nile are laser inscribed?
    I emailed a salesperson who told me they weren't, but the GCAL certificate clearly shows they are??

    Any advice much appreciated

    Unless they have the wrong reports attached to the stone, all of those are inscribed. I prefer the .52 F SI1 out of those...

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    Just curious as to why you would go for the F SI1 stone over the other two?

    None of them looks strongly better than the others to me. Can they have a gemologist pull all three and tell you which one looks best and totally eyeclean?
