First off, this forum rocks. I''ve been reading for awhile and everyone seems so informed and polite. Really happy to have found this forum.

I was wondering what thoughts everyone might have on these 2:


BN Diamond

WF diamond

Both scored well on the HCA so I''d like to hear some thoughts. Thanks!

Welcome!

Thanks for your very kind words, the veteran PSers in particular try hard to keep things polite and welcoming here! Glad to know this is appreciated!

As to the diamonds this is an easy choice for me, the WF diamond hands down!

Ditto the ever-charming Lorelei. Hands down a winner! I would reserve it while you decide just in case a lurker grabs it out from under you

The WF diamond is gorgeous, perhaps is the BN one very good looking too.
You have to know if you want to spend +/- 1500$ more and get a diamond that is lower in color and smaller in diameter.

Definitely WF - specs are much better IMO - not a big fan of the table size on the BN one. This is just a matter of preference though - you might like the look!

Thanks everyone for their input. Both diamonds have excellent HCA scores of around 1. However the BN has a better spread while the WF has better scintillation. I''m assuming the BN''s larger table size is the reason for the better spread but less scint. Does that mean that the BN will look larger in a way? Here are the specs for easy ref.

WF
Report: AGS
. Shape: Whiteflash ACA
. Carat: 1.543
Color: I
Clarity: VS2
. Depth %: 61.3
. Table %: 56.2
. Crown Angle: 34.7
. Crown %: 15.1
. Star : 54
. Pavilion Angle: 40.6
. Pavilion %: 42.7
. Lower Girdle %: 78
. Girdle: Thin to Medium Faceted

BN
Carat weight: 1.54
Cut: Ideal
Color: H
Clarity: VS2
Depth %: 59
. Table %: 60
. Crown Angle: 33
. Pavillion Angle: 41
Girdle: Thin to Medium Faceted

Also, is there a PS discount with WF? THANKS!
