Hello,
I am wondering with diamond to pick. One is a hearts and arrows one, and one is still ideal, but not hearts and arrows. When mounted, will I see a difference of which is which? Or when the diamond is getting appraised, will the appraisal be seen higher on the hearts and arrows?

Second question, should hearts and arrows be considered? Or is this just a hype to make you spend a little more?

These are the two diamonds.

Comparison http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/compare.aspx?idnos=2610854,2618030...

These diamonds are pretty similar. This is going to go on this setting. http://www.whiteflash.com/engagement-rings/three-stone/3-stone-coeur-de-clara-ashley-diamond-engagement-ring-39.htm

Thanks for your input in advance. This will be my first time making a almost final decision before putting an order in. :twirl:

Thanks

In this case, I would choose the ACA. It is the highest cut quality WF offers, and the measurements of the 2 stones are almost identical. Plus it's a few hundred cheaper!
WF has very low inventory right now in the .8-.99 size range. I tried to see if there were any VS1 or VS2 stones so you could go bigger and there is nothing! But great choice!

Here is a slightly larger non- H&A from JA that might fit the bill, you'd have to request the idealscope image:

Best of luck!

Yeah I agree with nfowife, you can't tell the difference with naked eye from vs to vvs, so if you want to down grade the clarity a bit you can gain more on the size.
