Please help me,

I have two diamonds to choose from but I cannot decide which one I want because it's over the intenet and cannot see the difference in the diamonds clarity.

The first is:
ct:0.5
clarity:SI1
Colour:G
table depth:63.9%
table width:60%
crown height:45%
pavillion depth:45%
girdle:medium
polish:good to v.good
symmetry:good to v.good
culet:none
fluorenscence:none
graining:nil
cut:no description

The second is:
ct:0.5
clarity:SI2
Colour:E
table depth:62.4%
table width:56%
crown height:17%
pavillion depth:43%
girdle:thin
polish:v.good
symmetry:v.good
culet:none
fluorenscence:none
graining:nil
cut:premium

Both of these diamonds are the same price. I believe the second is a much better diamond but I am worried that the inclusions will be seen which worries me. Unfortunately I cannot tell where the inclusions are so I'm a bit left in the dark. I cannot afford any more than I am paying and really can't get a better diamond for my money, trust me I've looked! The question is, is it worth losing one grade of clarity for the obvious benefits of the second diamond?

Please somebody help

1. Read the tutorial.
2. The info you posted is wrong - 45% crown is impossible
3. The second stone is a better cut, but you may be able to see the inclusion.
4. we do not like to work from approx %'s - prefer angles on crown and pavilion.

I am very sorry for the mistake in the profile as you correctly pointed out. The pavillion height is 14%.
Sorry for the error
