Concerns: some light leakage in ASET. Thoughts?

Diamond 2:
Carat weight 1.53

Concerns: faint fluorescence; not sure if there is a tint of yellow or if I'm seeing things. Thoughts?

Cost - similar for both, ~11,500

Thank you so much! Can't explain how thankful I am to this forum and for everyone's help along the way.

No to #1 due to light leakage (white areas under the table)
No to #2, because the proportions are similar to #1. It is lilely to have light leakage

I wouldn't pick either one and I agree with Flyingpig's assessment of them.

Wow. Ok, thank you.
I stuck to the "ideal" dimensions and looks like that didn't work out.
