Prefer the 2nd stone. Numbers are more in the norm and although it weight less it has a larger diameter. #1 has a larger lower half, gives a more splintery look, at below 1 c I think it is too busy but that is personal preference.

Don't worry about inclusions at VS1 and better, no way you will see it even with a loupe unless you know what you are doing.

How can #2 has a bigger diameter. And will H color quite different than G?

#2 also has crystal in the middle, will it influence the light performance?

1st stone measurements 5.99-6.05

2nd stone measurements 6.01-6.07

there is nothing to worry about with VS1 inclusions.

with respect to color...depends on how color sensitive you are. face up when set I doubt most people would see a difference.

#1 has a thicker girdle and also larger total depth. The girdle is hide a lot of weight.

Not G/H will not be noticeably different unless they are unmounted, side by side and seen from the pavilion against a neutral background.

As I said, VS1 is going to be eye-clean regardless of inclusion, so how can something you cannot see affect the light return?

I also like the second one better.
Just want a setting with side diamonds. sometimes see some big diamonds sitting in the middle, yet, much more yellowish than the side diamonds. Feel weird.

Match the side stones in color to your center. If not sides with a lab report, then get melee that is G/H color, and it will match.

The second stone would be my choice too.

Are you interested in such high clarity for a particular reason? Are you aware you can look for lower clarity and still have eye clean and no issues with light performance? Just checking. Some don't know this.
