Pulling my hair out trying to decide between these four diamonds (same color D/clarity VS1/AGS0 cut/ T-M Girdle, and similar price/ct). Although all of them are top diamonds but there is still some data difference and I can only afford ONE of them. For me the price doesn’t make much of a difference on these 4 stones, but I’d like to have the one with best cut/proportion and set it on my engagement ring. Please kindly share your opinions and help me select!

Is anyone able to run the numbers through DiamCalc so that I can make up my mind?

Or anyone can help us pick or exclude one of them? Any input is truly appreciated.



1) 1.173 ct

Re: PSer please Help! Need your opinions on cut / proportion

Those stones all look beautiful - no 'good', 'better', 'best' to choose! They are also very similar IRL - there will be nuances, because all stones have nuances that averaged numbers from a scan can't portray, but without a more thorough scan honestly a plug-'n-play DiamCalc simulation w/ the numbers you've provided is not going to give you any more information by which to choose than what you've already got ;)) If you want to make a truly failsafe choice, you'd have to have them all shipped out to you and see which one your eyes choose in-person. Given that that's both expensive and time consuming (and for what most customers want - a beautiful stone - unnecessary), ask WF which they recommend and why, if any, and go from there. The first will be visibly bigger than the others, even once set, I think.

Does either WF or BGD sell the setting you want? If so I'd go with that vendor... otherwise you'll have to weigh size & price. The 1.05ct ACA is exactly the same size as the 1.06 BGD (same spread - 6.53-6.54mm vs 6.53-6.55mm) and is 1.2k cheaper, so unless you want a setting from BGD I'd skip that one.
