Been reading and learning lots on this site...Wanna first thank all the experts who provides lots of great information. Based on what I''ve learned, I think I''ve narrowed down my selection

The first one scores quite a bit lower on the HCA. Do you guys/gals think the $650 is worth the difference?

Thanks!

The second one is cut better, that one gets my vote! Looks good.

#1 is slightly deep and steep in the pavilion, so there might be some light leakage compared to #2, it also faced up slightly smaller.

#2 is probably not worth it, IMHO.

EDT:
If you are on a budget, try going to H VS2.

dakkoo my vote is the same as Ellen's - I would go for the second diamond if you can afford it also as it has beautiful numbers and I would pay a bit extra for a great cut.
