Hi guys,

First post here. I'm in the market of buying a 1.5-1.7 carat, G+ color, VS2+ round stone. I've narrowed down my selection to these 3 stones. Could you share your opinions about them? :)

A: https://www.brilliantearth.com/lab-diamonds-search/view_detail/9464993/

1.7 carat / G / VS1 / 3EX

B: https://www.brilliantearth.com/lab-diamonds-search/view_detail/9424162/

1.5 carat / G / VS1 / 3EX

C: https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-di...rat-d-color-vs2-clarity-ideal-cut-sku-8064923

1.53 carat / D / VS2 / 3EX

Which one do you prefer and why?

I've only checked James Allen and BE since I'm not sure about the reliability for other online platforms. There aren't many options after I manually check certificates and filter by crown angle (34-35) pavilion angle (40-41).
If these diamonds are not good enough, feel free to recommend me other reputable vendors for lab diamonds (I'm in US). Thank you!

Did you run these through the HCA? I think they'll all likely score under 2, but worth double checking, especially since I cant see the JA cert. Of the two from BE I prefer the first one.

Thank you for the reply!

HCA scores are all very good:
A: 1.1
B: 1.3
C: 1.1

Certificate for C (JA one):

Great! I like the first BE option bc it gives you more size. But none of these are bad choices at all.

Edit. In order my choices would go:
1. The first BE one
2. The JA one
3. The second BE one
