Hi There,

I am very new to this and don't even know if I am in the right section!

I am trying to buy a 1 carat cusion cut diamond with an approx ratio of 1.15. I was looking at diamond 1 (1.05 carats, VS1, colour F, polish excellent, no florecence, thin to slightly thick girdle, table 55%, depth 64.6%) and was ready to buy but I am a little concerned about the clouds in the report. There are just a couple of clouds sitting in the middle but this is pretty much the only inclusions.

Blue Nile suggested a slightly cheaper diamond as an option (1.01 carats, VS2, colour E, polsih excellent, strong blue florecence, slightly thick to very thick girdle, table 60%, depth 67.9%) but it has a high flourencence...? And a few more inclusions than diamond 1(a small cyrstal and needle).

I'm not fussed with paying the extra for diamond 1 but the cloud is worrying me. If diamond 2 is just as good, I would prefer to save the $1,500 but in the end happy to pay if it is a better diamond.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I tried to post the reports but couldn't work out how to.

Thanks,

Being graded VS1 I don't think the clouds would be a problem. The thing about BlueNile is that they don't have the diamonds in stock to

No way to tell regarding the cut performance based on numbers alone, could be good or bad.
