If you could have only one which would it be, and why?

Both are GIA 0.26 ct VS2 rounds, with material and color of natural origin.
Coincidentally the both have VG polish and G symmetry.
Weird how many similarities they have.
The unmodified Green is deeper so it faces up smaller with a diameter of 3.85 vs. 4.11 mm.

I already have the first one.
The second just showed up this morning; I'm really obsessing on its white sandy Caribbean beach color but can't swing them both.

GIA reports can be found in these links.

The green, because I love the colour more, even with the face-up difference. Bear in mind I know nothing about buying fancy diamonds :D

ETA: oh yes! - and it looks very similar to my ering stone. Ha! :lol:

The GREEEEEEEN. The shade is as close to green perfection as it gets for me, and I'm not that big a green fan.

Color-wise, I'm completely torn. But I LOVE the cut of the green stone and that would decide it for me!

I know nothing about FCD's but I vote for the green stone. Green is my favorite color and I love both the color and cut of that stone! The bluish one seems to be less saturated too, but maybe that's just the photos?

I like both colours, the green one better though. Super colour and I adore the cutting/flower pattern in the middle.

Kenny - I'd go with the green. I feel it's a bit more intense, especially on the outsides of the stone. It's really a beautiful shade of green as well.

Kenny, I was immediately drawn to the green. I can't really justify it to you, it was just my gut. It's beautiful! Although they may be similar, the facet patterns do seem pretty different. The pattern in the green one is like a little flower. Nice dilemma you have :naughty:

I voted green. I know nothing about FCD. I like both. The cut on the diamonds looks great. The green seems have more color.

Edit - btw, is it a tranny?

Okie Dokie.
Thanks, that's what I suspected.
What was I thinking?

I'm going to stop looking at that new arrival. ;(

I think you should get a big one! 2 or more carats! That is my vote : )

Kenny - I'm really surprised that the blue has caught your attention. Yes, it's a blue diamond and yes, in parts, it's very pretty BUT it looks quite grey and the cut isn't doing it any favours for colour distribution.

I hope your gorgeous green doesn't get jealous that you've got a wandering eye!

Kenny. My favorite color is blue and I find myself sitting here wondering WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING?!

No contest. Green.

I picked the bluish one because I like the color much better, but as people have pointed out, the green has a better cut. If you like the green color though, green it is.

I voted green. You should buy blue. Please ask Leibish to contact me when the green arrives in their office. Thanks :)

:o You're thinking about returning your green? I was one of the 28 people so far who voted for the green.

I like the color and the cut of the green much better.

Kenny, you're crazy for ever thinking of replacing your green FCD. The color and faceting are gorgeous!

It's a Portguese cut stone, correct? I love the flower pattern!

The thing with the green is that it's far less replaceable than the blue. There seems to be less pure greens out there, and this one is especially nice because it had the naturals, nice cutting and very even and saturated color. Besides, you need a green in your collection to keep your rainbow complete. You seem to prefer blues though, isn't this the third blue you will have in your collection if you keep it?

Of all your FCDs, this one has always been my fave.

LOL -- I think there'd be a line of PSers waiting outside the door at Leibish for a chance to buy the green!
