Could you guys let me know what you think of these three diamonds?

first, the setting:
http://www.whiteflash.com/Engagement-Rings/Styles/3Stone/3-Stone-U-Prong-by-WF_746.htm

these are the two diamonds I am looking at,

one is a touch smaller, but a cut above hearts and arrow: .761 ct H SI1
http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-Cut-Above-H-A-cut-diamond-27913.htm

the other is a white flash expert selection, .82 ct G SI1
http://www.whiteflash.com/round_ideal_cut/Round-Ideal-Cut-cut-diamond-136235.htm

How much do you think having the A Cut Above diamond is worth? My gf isn''t overally concerned with quality, I''m just looking for the best looking ring to the naked eye. They are roughly the same price, and I can''t decide if the extra .06 carat weight is worth that small drop in quality

the 3rd is even further down in quality, but bumps it up to .89 ct, and seems to look fairly clean:

any opinions???

Since you''re doing a three stone, I''d go for as large a center stone as possible, but I wouldn''t go below SI1. I think I like the stone Ellen posted most as long as it is eye clean. Then you have to pick matching side stones!

I definitely don''t like the 3rd stone much, but I was liking the .82 ES stone. Can one of you explain why you like the stone ellen mentioned more than the .82 ct one?

I like the angles and IS image on the one I posted better. And the difference in size between that one and the .82 is pretty much nil. Plus mine''s cheaper!

Optimal crown angle is between 34 and 35, and the one you picked was over 35. Ellen''s had better measurements.
