Call Whiteflash and have them pull both stones for you an evaluate them (are they eye clean/from what distance and at what angle/which is a higher H color/better performer?/etc.). I love the smaller table and lower half of 76 of the 1.59 and it's cheaper but a smidge smaller, but the inclusion is on the table so not sure if that would bother me. Also (this could just be an artifact of photography), but the 1.58 looks quite a bit whiter to me in the photo and especially in the video despite them having the same color grade. However, in the side by side video, the 1.59 seems to really sparkle. Sorry :(sad , I know this isn't super helpful. But WF has EXCELLENT customer service and are super honest so they can tell you what they see in real life!

Thanks for the feedback!

It's a tough decision indeed :(

Does the 1.59 show more bold fire flashes because of the 76% lower half?

Is a 79% lower half a concern?

Both are outstanding stones so you cannot choose wrong. The 1.58 is not as deep so it has a tiny bit larger diameter. But the 1.58 has smaller table, higher crown, 76 lgf which I like, and costs less. Very easy decision to me...the 1.59.

I recommend that you put one on hold immediately, because these diamonds are very desirable and specs many people want. Lurkers get ideas for stones here, so you need to reserve the one you want or it may be gone.

Hopefully the crystal inclusions on the 1.59 on the table are not too visible (whiteflash is calling it "eye clean").

Looks like I'm leaning towards the 1.59 based on your feedback!
