The True Hearts stone has a large black spot on the crown facets. I have no idea if that is ink, given the clarity grade, or the stone pictured is the wrong one if it is an inclusion (no stone with an inclusion like that is given a VS1 grade).


So that's a concern.

I do like the GIA stone and it is cheaper so I would go for that one.

Of these two, I'd choose the GIA Ex bc it's less expensive and is actually a bit larger. GIA Ex is 7.05x7.07 while the True Hearts stone is 6.94x6.96. I believe the mark on the True Hearts stone is marker...you could also see blue smudges at about 5 o'clock, but confirm with JA to be safe.

Here are a couple of other options, too:

https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut/1.30-carat-g-color-vs1-clarity-excellent-cut-sku-1139129 - needs IS for the 36 crown angle

Their expert selection barely misses the parameters to be considered an ACA - this is my understanding?
