It's a tough call without seeng the stones or having crown and pavilion angles.

They both can be nice but will look different. The first one can be a bit darker because it is a bit shallow but it has a better spread (diameter).

Second one has a better color though, which you might appreciate.

VVS1 ar VVS2? You won't see inclusions anyway. Why not to go down to VS1/VS2?

Thanks a lot.
Since I still have no chance to see these two diamond, and that's all the spec I have about them now, so...

VS1/VS2 is ok for me, but there is no such choice from my local dealer.

BTW, will depth be the problem of the second one (too deep)? Which one seems has the better cut?

It can be a bit deep or just fine depending on crown/pavilion angles combination (see tutorial).

You should buy what you want; not what's available. Ask you dealer to bring you VS stones or maybe eye-clean SI. You'll save a lot of money unless VVS clarity is something important for you.
