Layla used to be a “power” contributor here on PS before she went to work for. I would trust her eye and her judgment, she doesn’t need to make a sale. You might need to know what questions to ask her, though.
Like, do the additional clouds not shown on the H have any effect on the transparency of the stone? Obv not the clarity, or the clarity would be lower. But ‘transparency’ is different from clarity. I don’t know why, but that’s what I’d ask. And... if she said ‘no’ to that question, then I’d pick the H. Only cuz I can’t tell that much of a color difference until about J-K, so, there’s extra 2K for the next thing
But ... if you really want a bigger non-branded stone, why spend time nitpicking between the two CBIs at all?
If David could send his pick to Layla (you might have to ”buy” it first? She could (if she were willing do do this (since she already knows you‘re shopping around)) do a video of the two CBIs against the David stone so you could virtually view them all at the same time, and against each other in the same environment.
Thanks. I will ask Layla that question. I told her I was asking for opinions on PS. I don’t think she actually has the stones because they are being shipped to her (I think they are in Antwerp?).
