From my understanding and readings, the Hearts and Arrows give more sparkle. JMO, I''m fairly new to this too, so if it''s worth anything, I say#1

A relatively novice owner or wearer will find either diamond wonderful so long as they find you wonderful and loving. Later on, when they develop a higher degree of sophistication, they might prefer one over the other slightly, but it is never going to be a major issue. The heavier diamond is noticeably larger in diameter and that might make me tip in that direction more than any other characteristic.

If it were my diamond, I''d want some more info before buying. Get the crown and pavilion angles of the certs and run them through the HCA (cut advisor in the tools link above) if she wants as much sparkle as possible. Generally, diamonds that score lower than 2 are the best performers.
