Hey Swansong-My advice to you is stick with an H or better as far as the color goes. There are varying degrees of si-1 & si-2 inclusions. Some which are more noticable and prominent than others. Both Jonathan or Barry will not steer you wrong on giving honest criticism about any particular stone you have in mind and how noticanle those inclusions might be. You can get a stone with better B-scope readings than the 1st one you described. Look at the five light views on the scope readings too & get an idea of the stone which exhibits better results in that category. You can also get an idea of how "tight" a stone is cut be taking a look at the megascope readings and seeing the largest degree of variance between all the measurements of all the angles. For example a stone with a variance no greater than .3 or .4 is cut better than a stone with let's say a variance ranging from .8 - 1.0. It's just a matter of how many hairs you want to split. If your stuck on 2 carats you might have to compromise on size a little to get the stone you want exhibiting high results. Good luck...----------------

The Superbcert looks interesting...I could go with a smaller Carat stone..like 1.7+. My budget is 15k and would like to get a H&A that is Eye Clean and faces up White.
Thanks in Advance.
