Both idealscopes are equally good.

Flip a coin.

Seriously. No bad choice. No material difference in performance at all.

What are the crown and pavilion angles, table and depth, on the stones?

These are the specs. They are pretty much the same, right?

Stone 1:
Depth: 61.9
Table % 55.6
Crown Angle 34.8
Star 51.0
Pavilion Angle 40.8
Crown % 15.5
Lower Girdle % 76.0
Measurements 7.02x7.04x4.35
Culet Pointed
Fluorescence Negligible
Girdle Thin to Medium Faceted


Stone 2:
Depth % 61.8
Table % 55.2
Crown Angle 34.7
Star 52.0
Pavilion Angle 40.7
Crown % 15.5
Lower Girdle % 77.0
Measurements 7.03x7.05x4.35
Culet Pointed
Fluorescence Negligible
Girdle Thin to Medium Faceted

Should I eliminate the BGD stone then?

They both are great. Is one a better color or clarity to help you decide?

No they are both the same color and clarity, but one is a bit more expensive, so I thought there could be a difference in cut between them to justify the price difference.

They are pulling the two stones right now to let me know their thoughts.

Stone #1 has several (5) crystals.

Stone #2 has one small needle and a small cloud.

After having a chat with WF I chose stone #2.

Stone #1's inclusions were on the table and potentially more visible while #2's inclusions were not. #2 had a small table as well.

I'm so excited!!!
