Good morning all,

Please see below:

It's not easy to determine the best stone as price is often the factor which determines the value of a diamond compared to its quality!

However from taking a quick look at these certs I would rule out the 1.17ct as from its image, this is the least aesthetically pleasing diamond.

On paper the 1.26ct diamond is the most impressive of all of them, however the certificate does show quite a few inclusions for a VS1 quality stone, so it is difficult to confirm this without a visual!

I hope this information is useful!

Best of luck!

I like the diamond combo C the best. A is a 60/60 stone.

Hi everyone resurrecting this from the dead. I'm leaning on picking Diamond C(which is the left diamond in the video) from above, but in the videos below, is that black spot in the middle "arrow" something that I should steer clear of? Or is it just the angle of the video, a dead spot, light leakage? am i over thinking this?

Is the F VS2 fine? Which do you like better?

Thanks for any help!
