Why is this diamond more than that one?

Both are AGS 0 Princess cuts. Both are F color. Both sold through WF.

But this one is IF, 1.028 carats, and priced $6610 (less through PS):

And this one is VVS1, 1.01 carats, and priced $7303:

Besides being AGS0''s, are there other aspects of the cut that make the VVS1 more expensive than the larger IF diamond?

Oh, I just saw through the URL that the second one is an "A Cut Above" princess. What does that mean? Again, is it superior to the other AGS0?

Rob,

I am not the most well versed person in PCs, but here''s my guess:
ACAs are cut to very tight specifications, hence the branding of ACA (and higher price set) by Whiteflash. You just can''t go wrong with an ACA stone. Plus, the medium girdle is so much better on a Princess cut (less chance of the corners chipping). The other AGS0 PC is still a very pretty stone. I would just be more wary of the thin girdle. Perhaps that''s why it is priced less?

I agree with Chrono, the VVS is ACA branded and the other isn''t, it is likely you are paying more for the ACA pedigree and the strict criteria the diamond has to meet to be awarded this.
