Please help me choose between these 2 diamonds

First diamond:

GIA Round Brilliant
6.53-6.55 X 3.94 mm
1.02 carat
E color
VVS2 clarity
excellent cut grade
excellent polish & symmetry
Fluorecense: None
Griddle: Medium (Faceted)
Price: $10,500

Second diamond:
AGS Round Diamond
6.6-6.65 X 4.03 mm
1.07 carat
E color
VVS2 clarity
Ideal cut grade
Ideal polish & symmetry
Fluorecense: Neglible
Price: $9,970

Both diamonds score 0.9 at HCA

Both diamonds are not from the same vendor. Please let me know how do you think which one I should choose.

Thank you very much for your help

that is what I''m thinking as well but the 2nd diamond has neglible fluorecense which mean that it has slightly blue color if I''m not mistaken

GIA none and AGS negligible are equivalent.

Based on the numbers and prices you provided, I would pick #2.

However, why so high on color/clarity? You could drop at least to an F/VS2 without any noticeable difference, and either get a bigger stone or spend some money.

Thank you for the suggestions, I''ll do some research further whether it''ll be better to go bigger but lower quality or go with the way it is right now.

Even if it had medium florescence, you probably wouldn''t see it unless you put the diamond under a black light. Bu as someone said, negligible bascially means none so it is not an issue. I''d choose the second one assuming the girdle is in the range of thin-medium-slightly thick.
