Hey folks,

I'm working with Bob from WF on narrowing down a selection btwn these very similiar diamonds:

ES 1.056 G SI2 $4536 ($4400ps wire) AGS-7829902:

http://www.whiteflash.com/round_ideal_cut/Round-Ideal-Cut-cut-diamond-175740.htm#
- eye clean at both 8cm and 25cm
- inclusions are in the center and just outside the table and are mixed black and white in color.
- cannot be seen from the side view of the diamond.

ES 1.05 H SI2 $4447 ($4314ps wire) AGS-7909507:

http://www.whiteflash.com/round_ideal_cut/round-ideal-cut-cut-diamond-175733.htm#
- this diamond is eye clean also
- the inclusions are colorless and white, _no_ black
- Bob's opinion is that this should have been graded an SI1 (rather than an SI2)
- Nothing can be seen from the side.

Pragmatically, these diamonds are virtually the same -- but it's mostly mental peace of mind in choosing one or the other. Your opinions would be appreciated!

[EDITTED: TO FIX THE LINKS]

I like the top one better. I looked on the site and compared the two pictures from a zoomed out range and I like the arrows better on the G stone. I think the H tends to show the arrow shafts but not the tips. I think it will make the center of the diamond appear darker, and my preference would be for the contrast to be more evenly distributed.

Either one would be lovely, though.

robbie3982 -- because of the better clarity?

Both very nice, tough decision. I guess maybe I''d go for the top one.

I like H one better... because in the first one, I can see the center of the diamond has small "dust" and "particles"..... I''m a fan of H color...
