Hi all I just wanted a fresh pair of eyes for these three princess cut diamonds before buying one. I dunno if its sad since the last time I posted was about a different diamond type for a different girl, but here it is anyways. These are the three I have in mind:

From these three links:

http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/d...0.873-e-vs1-princess-diamond-ags-104079603002

They're all within the same price range that I'm looking for (5-3k for the diamond), all rated AGS ideal, but with some slight variances in clarity and color. All my research has been in Round diamonds until I took the lady shopping and she said she had a princess cut preference. I've heard going past G-H isn't worth it for the overall color discrepancy but the last one looks different cut-wise and its throwing me off. As for the lady's other preferences she insists that I care way too much about these fine details and I should just choose because any diamond will do. Currently I'm leaning from right to left, with the middle and last images being almost tied and the third one just kinda there for comparison. Any help, tips, suggestions, or inquiries would be much appreciated in helping me make a decision!

They all look great, I'd go with with the .90 H

I agree - you really can't go wrong with any of them - but personally I'd go with the 0.873ct E-VS1 - it has a smaller table and is colorless, while facing up basically the same size as (but $150 less expensive than) the 0.902ct H-VS1.

I appreciate all the replies. I was considering the .87 one or the .90 one but the ASET for the .87 makes me wonder a little bit. I do agree that the table is smaller and the color grade is higher (maybe unnecessarily so) for the .87 but the ASET makes me raise my eyebrows a little bit and I can't tell yet if its in a good or bad way. The .90 has the "typical" ASET image I'm used to seeing in Princess cuts so the .87 is making me wonder if I would like that better. The darker corners inside the smaller square is making me debate if I would like it more, but the red portions are more defined than the .90. I'm just constantly looking at the 360 and the still to see if I can debate on which one I like more.

Out of curiosity other than the better Color and smaller table were there any other reasons why you liked this one? What do you think about the ASET compared to the .90?
