Why must it be one or the other out of those two?! :?: There's just too much of a drastic color and size difference for me to be able to make a decision...why no middle ground? 2ct H/I VS2 perhaps!? I think I'm too color sensitive to handle a MRB J (I also feel AGS is a bit softer on color so to me it would probably be more like an GIA K). But 1.65 is small for my size 7 finger! Ultimately, I wouldn't be happy with either.

If she's a bright J and you're not very colour-sensitive, I'd go for diamond #2.

If the ACA means it's a WF A Cut Above then I would take the J.

If it was a typo and should be AGS I would probably still take the bigger stone, but would be a little less sure about the decision.

Neither.

Is this for you or for someone else, first and foremost. That is the MOST important question.

If it's an ACA I'll take the J.

I am not seeing a 2.5 J SI1 ACA, so is the stone on hold? What is your budget? Because I agree with others who said they'd choose an H or I color stone between those two sizes. I don't think the cost is the same for stones with those two specs. Did you maybe mean 2.05 cts for the J stone?
