Based on these alone, which would you choose? I will post specs after a few responses.

#2~#5 are ACA level (if not ACA)... flip a coin
My choice is between #3 and #4 because of less green around the edge.
#3 wins because of the smaller table.

But.. they are all good.

Thanks @flyingpig, here are the specs. Does your recommendation stay the same?

lol.. I was wrong about the table.

Seriously, they are all good. I am surprised to find the D VS2 is ACA as well. I thought it was ES. I just wonder if that's how other ACAs look under the IS scope with white background, instead black.

I still like #3. I checked the price. It is an E, and the biggest, and cheaper than the other two 1.4 F VS1s.
I just happened to look at my mother's E VS1 a moment ago. It is so white.

It also depends on how visible those VS2 inclusions are.

I picked a stone before looking at the specs table and I liked the 3rd
One the best...white center and nicely defined outside the table.
Now after looking at the specs it is also the biggest one which is a plus.

They will all be beautiful stones but 3 would be my top pick. Number 5 would probably be my second choice.

You didn't post the cost which would be another factor I would take into consideration.

thanks for the responses, I really liked #3 as well, but the inclusions are not favorable, and it's out of my budget =( actually they all at except #4 (under 15k).

Close-ups of #4 & #5. I noticed #4 has larger leakage (black) at the tips of the star facets and thicker edges of the stars (green) - is this because of the smaller star lengths? Am I just being nitpicky or will this be noticeable?

You are being EXCEPTIONALLY nitpicky. Pick one or the other. I like 5.

Both 4 and 5 are Whiteflash's A cut above stones which are already the best of the best and are top performers. You can't get any better... If 4 is within your budget, then stick with that.

My top pick was/is #5 -- if you can, buy #5 and have it shipped to you loose so you can evaluate it in different lighting conditions -- it is a beauty and sure to wow.

I like #5 as well. You can't go wrong with an ACA.
