Price on these stones is virtually the same.

Please give opinions on which one looks better on paper. I saw both in person but I could not see them side by side. They both seemed great, GIA seemed a bit whiter while the AGS seemed a bit better cut (more defined hearts and arrows)

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

Both could work from the numbers but the GIA stone is slightly further away from tolkowsky ideal cut proportion than the AGS stone. Tends towards more fire performance at the expense of brilliance and slightly smaller diameter.

Personal preference on which you prefer.
