Thanks for everyone who responded to my first post. I''ve searched online and found a couple diamonds I''m considering. I would love to have your opinions on these stones.

I''ve decided that I can drop down a little in color to get a larger stone. I can''t tell the difference in the face up position, and I don''t think my g/f will be able to either. So I''m looking in the "near colorless" range. I''m definitely comfortable with a G-H, and from what I''ve seen on another thread, I think I could go all the way to J to maximize the size while maintaining the highest cut quality which is paramount for me.

In no particular order:

Diamond No. 1: 1.156 ct I SI1 Whiteflash ACA
Report: AGS
. Shape: Whiteflash ACA
. Carat: 1.156
. Depth %: 61.3
. Table %: 57.2
. Crown Angle: 34.7
. Crown %: 14.9
. Star : 54
. Pavilion Angle: 40.6
. Pavilion %: 42.8
. Lower Girdle %: 76
. Girdle: Thin to Slightly Thick Faceted
. Measurements: 6.73-6.75X4.13
. Light Performance: 0
. Polish: Ideal
. Symmetry: Ideal
. Culet: Pointed
. Fluorescence: Negligible

Question on this one: Any concern with Table %? AGS cert says "Clarity grade based upon clouds not show". Is that a good thing or not?

Diamond No. 2: 1.183 ct J VS2 Whiteflash ACA
Report: AGS
. Shape: Whiteflash ACA
. Carat: 1.183
. Depth %: 61.4

. Star : 51
. Pavilion Angle: 40.8
. Pavilion %: 43.1

. Measurements: 6.78-6.82X4.18
. Light Performance: 3
. Polish: Ideal
. Symmetry: Ideal
. Culet: Pointed
. Fluorescence: Negligible

Question on this one: Internet page says "Light Performance: 3", but AGS shows "Light Performance: 0". What gives? Just a mistake on the website?

Won''t be a problem in SI1 and a hand selected ACA - check with the vendor to be absolutely sure but I don''t think there will be an issue. Table percent is fine. Check it is eyeclean to your standards by asking WF.

They all look very nice, it depends on your budget and preferences as to which you pick - and of course which of the SI are eyeclean to your standards.
