Hi all! I’ve been lurking in these boards for quite awhile during my diamond search. I just purchased two marquise diamonds online and I’m having a tough time deciding which one to keep.

The first one is a 1.11 carat excellent cut SI1 K faint light brown, 10.37 x 5.6 x 3.37


The 2nd one is a 1.09 carat very good cut SI1 J. It has a very slight yellow undertone that I only really see in my bathroom lighting, 10.51 x 5.27 x 3.39

The K faint brown faces up whiter than the J but in certain lighting both ends look a little darker, more like a champagne color. The only thing that bothers me is that it looks so dark in restaurant and office lighting. The J’s facets are crisper looking in person even though the cut is very good vs excellent, but it looks warmer against white gold.

The K is the top stone, J on the bottom. I’m having such a tough time picking!

I had the K set and here’s a pic of what I’m talking about with the color on the ends. The J is in the stone holder.

The J looks better cut to me however, I'd send them both back and get help from PSers.
