What are the numbers you enter to arrive at those score? That will be useful.

Also the girdle thickness, star and lower girdle facet numbers if available.

my vote is for the 1.54
Thanks for your vote Idealistic! The bluenile rep suggests I roll the 1.50 b/c of the I color but I think (in my finite wisdom) the .7 TIC rating has more of an appeal.

I would prefer the 1.54 too. That is an AGS graded stone right? Are they both from BN?

Yes...AGS and they are both from BN. Also, I find the AGS reports show light performance, proportion, and finish all of which are 0. What specific factor attracts you to the 1.54 over the 1.50?

Is there a price difference between the two? Also, how about eye cleanliniess. I realize BN won''t be able to look at this for you, but how do the inclusion plots look and what type of inclusions do they show?

AGS0 cut grade. :razz:

Also, better spread, initially was worried about the score, but that angle should be ok. The GIA stone might be good, but GIA round the numbers too much that it might not be that good, only an IS will tell if it is good or not but BN will not be able to provide that image. So the 1.54 is the safe bet. :razz:

I''d get the AGS one, because their cut grading is more strict.

Here is the AGS report link: http://www.bluenile.com/round-diamond-1-carat-ideal-cut-j-color-si1-clarity_LD01448479#grading_report

The difference between the 1.50 and 1.54 is $125.

The consensus appears to be the 1.54 so I will roll that one. Thank you everyone!

The 1.54 looks good from the info given, star and LGF are all in good range as I would expect them to be.
