Initial scrutiny - if you have not yet, run the stats through the HCA and anything under 2 is a keeper, anything 2<X, eliminate!

Just a general comment. For a growing number of consumers, and most of us here, cut quality is a priority. As such, with regard to GIA reports, Triple Ex is starting to become a baseline expectation in the market. Stone #2 does not make that category.

Here's some guidance for you. Start with GIA Excellent cut ONLY. Some of these are better than others. So use the numbers below to narrow down the better GIA Ex cut stones.

Table: 54-58

Depth: 60.0-62.3

Crown angle: 34-35.0

Pavilion angle: 40.6-40.9

Your #1 and #3 diamonds are just outside the parameters above, so I would want to see an ASET image on those before I would buy one.
