would be good if you can give idealscope image and hearts image, but based on numbers. 1

I really like for 1.5 ct. stones to be 7.4mm and the first one is closer to 7.3, so that wouldn't thrill me. If you try to keep the depth under 62.0, you may be able to get a better diameter. But the other measurements look good. I am just picky about wanting the diameter to be better. What does it say those inclusions are on #1?

Feather and cloud are the inclusions for the 1st one.

The 2nd diamond is actually 600-700 more expensive than the first but they are willing to match the price with the 1st diamond.

The first one looks "cleaner" but the 2nd one appears to have better diameters. Maybe that's why there is a price jump?

The person helping me mentioned that the inclusions on the 2nd one are not a big deal and to go for the 2nd one as the diameters are better.

Decisions decisions.

Yeah, I think magnified images and idealscope would be needed to decide between these. I'm not wild about the feather in #1 and would probably have to see it to be sure.

I'll see if I can get an idealscope image but, I highly doubt they will have it. :blackeye:

Ughh, stuck between a rock and a hard place.

So we have a pretty big feather in the first one. And the 2nd one has clouds in the middle.

:knockout:

they are both VS2, so I think you are fine there.

Swy81, you mean diameter of the 2nd stone or some other parameters like angles etc.?

I wish we had some other kind of picture..even just a magnified picture of each stone. Can they not provide that? Are you open to shopping elsewhere if they can't give you anything else? I confidently have bought diamonds without seeing them, but I had a lot of other info besides the lab reports.
