Hi,
I need some help selecting from among the following 3 Radian Cut Diamonds. All three are GIA Certified and cost about the same.

DIAMOND #1:
WEIGHT 1.59 -COLOR F -CLARITY VVS2
Dims-7.29 x 6.16 x 4.32 mm
Depth 70% Table 73%
Polish- very good Symmetry- good
Fluorescence-none cutlet- none
Girdle- medium to slightly thick

DIAMOND #2:
WEIGHT 1.51 -COLOR F -CLARITY VS1
Dims-7.08 x 6.25 x 3.9 mm
Depth 62.4% Table 72%
Polish- good Symmetry- good
Fluorescence-none cutlet- none
Girdle- medium to slightly thick

DIAMOND #3:
WEIGHT 1.62 -COLOR F -CLARITY VS1
Dims- 8.24 x 6.27 x 4.07 mm
Depth 64.9% Table 72%
Polish- good Symmetry- good
Fluorescence-none cutlet- none
Girdle- thin to slightly thick

None have any significant inclusions, clouds, feathering, etc.

I have seen and compared #1 and #2 Comparing #1 & #2 from the top face, the main distinguishing characteristic is that #2 appears very sparkly with a very small symmetric crown in the middle, while #1 has a larger symmetric crown in the middle. I guess the easiest way to explain it is that #2 appears to have a bunch of broken crystals inside, while #1 has a more definite reflection pattern and a visible "crown" in the middle.

Which is more desirable, the "crown" or the crystal look? Am I confusing the "crown" for fish-eye?

Thank you.
