Price scope diamond aficionadios.. I'd like to call upon your wisdom once again to help me decide upon the right diamond for my to-be's engagement ring. Although the price points vary significantly, I think your comments could help me to step in the right direction. Please be completely subjective as I value your opinions very much.

Diamond No. 1: http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2656291.htm

(the inclusions are my biggest fear with the ring above, but the size appeals to me as I'm looking for a size 8 ring)

Diamond No. 2: http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2531870.htm

Once again.. Thanks so much!

Both look good to me, ask WF if the SI1 is eye-clean, do not judge the eye-cleanliness of a stone from images, totally not useful.

Thanks Stone-old. WF DID say that I wouldn't be able to ever find the inclusions (and if I did that I could return the ring).

Any other opinions? Could I do better for the price range?

I was also curious as to what the color of the center table should be in an Aset image.. Red or green?

Doesn't matter - makes no difference. Oddity resulting from ASET scope setup.

ETA:
Some from JA - lower pricepoint but less generous policies
1.19 I VS1 TrueHearts $8820 http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/I-VS1-Ideal-Cut-Round-Diamond-1383421.asp (request IS/hearts pics)
1.24 H VS2 TrueHearts $10090 http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/H-VS2-Ideal-Cut-Round-Diamond-1380118.asp (request IS/hearts pics)
1.31 I VS1 TrueHearts $9700 http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/I-VS1-Ideal-Cut-Round-Diamond-1380112.asp (request IS/hearts pics)

if H&A is not important to you there are several from WF's ES line that look like they may be appropriate - same policies that come w/ ACAs I believe
1.224 I VS2 ES $8546 http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2231149.htm
1.203 H VS2 ES $9332 http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2531888.htm

I agree, both look nice. Even though both can very definitely be eye clean, I personally feel more comfortable buying VS2+ online. This is definitely not a sentiment that all will share, but I was stressing out about a lot of different aspects of my recent e-ring purchase, and I just flat out decided I didn't want clarity to be one of the elements of concern anymore. Luckily, most sites have great return policies, but I didn't want to have to deal with that.

Just my unprofessional opinion though. Hope it helps!

Also - thanks getting clarification on the red/green center dot on assets, I was wondering the same thing!

They both looks good to me, and I'd pick the H color one. my stone is SI1 as well and I can not see anything with my eyes so you should be fine. Anything above VS2 it's hard to tell any difference by naked eyes so basicly you are paying for the mind clean idea.
