I''ve found her - the perfect woman, that is; but not yet the perfect diamond. I am a diamond newbie and am purchasing a sight-unseen diamond from a jeweler recommended by a friend to propose to the love of my life. I have narrowed it down to two diamonds - the reports are attached. Here are the specs:


1. 1.03ct GIA
SI-1 clarity
E color
Polish Excellent
Symmetry Excellent
Cut Grade Very Good
6.60x6.64x3.91mm

2. 1.01ct GIA
SI-1 clarity
E color
Polish Excellent
Symmetry Excellent
Cut Grade Excellent
6.48x6.53x3.97mm

The first one has bigger measurements, but the second one is a cut grade higher. The price is the same for both ($5,100). Which one do you recommend and why? Is the price good? Never having purchased a diamond before, I am relying completely on your inputs - Please help! Thanks so much!

The 1.01.

I believe the proportions on the 1.03 are too shallow to meet GIA''s EX grade.

Ditto, I can''t quite read the proportions of the second but they do look shallow from what I can see.
