Thank you for taking the time to review. I have narrowed my search down to 3 stones (maybe 2) and need to pull the trigger on one. The stone will be for a solitaire engagement ring. This will be my second H&A stone to buy; however, this time I will not be able to do a side by side comparison in person. That is why I'm asking for your help. Thanks so much!

Tough choice because they are all Super Ideals. I can tell you that I would not sacrifice size for VVS2 clarity. I would rather have
size. You can ask for a picture of all three stones side-by-side. Some people would like the smaller table on the E. I actually
prefer a slightly bigger 56-57(but it's a mind thing and not really something that I've been able to compare in person).

Most of this is personal preference. You've taken most of the guesswork out by picking Super Ideals. I vote the 2.5 D followed by
the E. All really nice though!

D VS2 first. I prefer a larger table, and I would choose a D over an E if given the choice. I have no problem with a 77 LGF.

Then E.

I would not consider the VVS2. That's not where I want to spend my money.

Thanks for the input. When I said maybe 2 rather than 3 stones, I was thinking about dropping the VVVS2 from the choices. It looks like everyone so far agrees. It's interesting that those two stones have the biggest and smallest tables. Does the ASET image give any clue one which stone between the 1st (2.503) and the 3rd stone will reflect the most light? I just don't have enough experience/knowledge to determine which stone will look the best in person.
