by raindrops on roses » Sep 13, 2018 at 12:06 PM Hi all! I had recently upgraded my original smaller ACA studs to around 1.6ctw, J VVS/VS. They are really sparkly and I enjoyed the size upgrade, but having worn them for a couple of months now, I've come to realize that J color diamonds really isn't for me, personally. So I'm looking to change them into diamonds of similar ctw, but with H SI1 specs. The WF rep has helped to shortlist 3 diamonds - so I need to pick 2 out of 3. https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/compare.aspx?idnos=3961918,3964547,4027052 Her assessment of the diamonds is as follows: All of them made our eye clean. From the side each of these had inclusions that could be seen from 10 inches, though for earrings I’m not sure how much that would really matter. When it comes to the inclusions the 0.816ct (ending in 0067) does have a combination of darker and light inclusions while the 0.816ct (ending in 2009) are all lighter inclusions. The 0.823ct has lighter inclusions as well but to me it’s the easier of the three to see the inclusion from the side. I'm confused and waffling, and would really appreciate some advice on which 2 diamonds to pick, given that the other variables such as the color and performance are equal. My current pair of studs are very clean (VVS/VS), and going down to SI1 might be an adjustment. I know this is probably a mind-clean issue, given that the diamonds are for earrings, but I want to make the best/most well-informed choice here. Thank you and sorry for the long post!
