The only difference between these 2 diamonds on paper is that one's 1.61 carats and the other is 1.69. I won't tell you which is which though. :razz:
Comments appreciated, especially with regards to the ideal scope image because I don't know how to read it.

Oops, forgot to include choice for a tie. :|

IMHO, the symmetry looks a little off for the stone on the right. I prefer the stone on the left.




Best of luck!

I''m not sure if I did the right diamond justice. I''ll take another set of pictures tomorrow when my new H&A viewer arrives! Will take more ideal scope images as well...

Silverbuggy,

They both look great. However, I think the right images are gonna get a raw deal because the photos are not as good as the ones on the left. Seems like the diamond is a bit skewered in the tray in a few of those pics.

Best,

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

Judah, I''m going to get a professional photographer friend to take some more shots tonight with my new H&A viewer...might post them here or on another thread. Can''t wait! :razz:

Will try to balance the diamond on the tray but it''s hard to tell which way to tip the diamond. :| I tried tapping the tray but not sure if it helped.

I knew it had something to do with the pictures! Would love to see a new thread with new pictures for both and that way you could add the tie vote!

Which one do YOU like SB?
Ditto. At this point, they''ve both been deemed nice in pics, it''s time to just focus on the actual stones and see if one speaks to you more.

Thritto!! (I''ve always wanted to say that - LOL.) Seriously, I agree with Lorelei and Ellen - now is the time to follow what your eyes (and heart) tell you to do! They are both lovely. Nice size too!

Sigh I am a bit torn though I have a slight preference for one. But I''m not educated enough to decide!!
I''m going to start a new thread to learn about a couple things...
