Hi there!
I’m trying to pick between these two diamonds - which would you pick out of these?

I made both meet my specifications, but wanted to confirm if there’s something strikingly different about one over the other


Thanks so much in adVance!!

I like the small table of the 1st stone. I don’t like the crown height of the 2nd. I would imagine the VVS is more money for a smaller diamond.

The first stone has thin girdle, which means more face-up size for the same weight. For a large stone it may not be a problem. Its star is a little short. Other than that it looks great.
For the second stone, I like its longer star and shorter LGF, but its face-up size is much smaller.

I prefer the second one. I like the larger lower girdle facets (75) more than the other one that has very skinny facets (80). I usually go for 75-77. I think the 58 table is fine.

That said, we could tell much more with a photo of the stones and preferably an ASET image,

Are they getting a new report for the first one? It’s 6 years old.
