hey, i've been reading the forum for months. i know that cut is most important + i know about the hca ratio. i narrowed my choices to 3. considering 3 diamonds all in GBP3,200-3,400 range:

1) 6191518366 - 0.84ct - G - VS2 - Excellent - http://bit.ly/1RXuKu5
2) 2226199483 - 0.82ct - H - VS1 - Excellent - http://bit.ly/1SGCujP
3) 2217403163 - 0.85ct - H - VS2 - Excellent - http://bit.ly/1Q0KVV6

Which one would you choose? Can I find better gems for this price? I haven't looked around very long. Any comments apprec.

thx

2 is the best. 1 and 3 are about equal.
Thats about 4.5k and 5.0k usd. You should be able to get 0.9 G/H VS with that budget (before duty/tax)

Thanks! However, my vendor does not carry 0.9ct around this price. On the other hand, the following is an option: http://bit.ly/1XnOtH0

This is 700 GBP more than no.2 above. Do you think the difference is worth it?

I don't know much about local pricing in UK, but 1k usd for upgrade to 0.9c is about right. 0.2mm can be noticeable and may be worth it. But not this particular 0.9c; its proportions are not thrilling. Based on the proportions, #2 is still the best, though it is the smallest, below 6.00mm.

All four stones have potential.
