Thanks again and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

The first one (1.28 G VS1) is the only one that scores well on the HCA. Diamond 2 is leaky and three is a 60/60, which gives it a different look than other ideal cut stones. Note the long, skinny arrows.

The skinny arrows is due to the large LGF, 85%.

Welcome!

I like the first diamond best, post the IS image when you get it. I would pass on the second one, the third is a well cut diamond but has a different character to the first one, so it can be a matter of taste if you like the look of a larger table along with longer lower girdle facets, it could be a very pretty diamond.
