    Hi Experts

    I have narrowed my search to two GIA certed stones. The details are as follows:

    Stone 1) 2.01 Cts
    Colour: H
    Clarity SI2
    Measurements:7.37 x 7.23 x 4.72
    Depth:65.3%
    Table: 67%
    Polish; Very Good
    Symmetry: Very Good
    No flouresccence
    Girdle: thin to med

    Stone 2) 2.10 cts
    Colour F
    Clarity SI2
    Measurements: 7.54 x 7.22 x 4.96
    Depth: 68.7%
    table: 71%
    Polish Very Good
    Symmetry: good
    No flourescence
    Girdle: medium

    Obviously, to have F colour over H is better, and this would cost me an extra $2000. However, I am wondering about how the two stones will handle light. As the H stone is slightly squarer, and has very good symmetry, against the F stone which only has good symmetry, will the H colour stone perform better in terms of light return?

    Or is it the case the that both stones will handle light well, and that there will be no discernable difference (other than the colour, of course).

    I have had photos sent to me of both stones, and can see that the symmetry on the H is better. But the vendor can't send me pictures taken through the idealscope, so I'm going to have to anke up my mind based on the information above.

    Please help!

    Thanks

    Leonid - I just tried to edit this posting and attach the picturesof the two diamonds which are in Jpeg format. I couldn't seem to do it. Can I e-mail them to you and could you attach them to my posting?
