I''m having a hard time choosing between these two wonderful diamonds.

Diamond 1:
Carat: 1.27
Color: G
Clarity: VS2
Cut: AGS Ideal 0

Diamond 2:
Carat: 1.35
Color: F
Clarity: SI1
Cut: AGS Ideal 0

Both both diamonds are eye clean.
Both diamonds have less than 2.0 on the HCA.
Both diamonds are H&A diamonds.
The 1.35 F SI1 is $140 more, although for the amount I''d be paying for one of these two diamonds, $140 is almost negligible.

The setting I will be choosing has G Color diamonds on it.

I''d pick the F/SI stone. Color over clarity, for me. However, this is a personal decision and everyone has different preferences.

All things being equal, I would choose the bigger, better color stone.

1. If you have seen the diamonds, then definitely the one that has better light performance.
2. If performance is the same, then I''d lean towards Diamond #2...only reason I''d take Diamond #1 is if #2 is not eye-clean to satisfaction.

If the quality of the cut is the same for both, I''d go for the larger one.

For comparison purpose, assume both qualities are the same, assuming they are signature cuts from either GOG, WhiteFlash ACA, Wink Jones, Nice Ice, etc.

Then I would go big!
