    @bluerose88:  

    Your poll options do not match your descriptions.

    @bluerose88:  They are ideal cut according to who? If a lab, which one?

    Has the vendor confirmed that the strong blue fluorescence one doesn’t have any milkiness (a rare but still possible trait)? Have you seen an I colored diamond before? I color is around the mark where some people can see color, especially with a larger stone. The fluorescence only helps the stone appear whiter in light that has UV in it, like direct sunlight.

    @bluerose88:  I personally wouldn’t go below a G, maybe an H, for a ring, as I do notice colour and it would bug me. But, I like the fact that the I coloured stone is higher in clarity, so it’s a tough call!

    Can you see the stones in natural light? That might help you decide.

    Overall though I think that if the colour doesn’t bother you I’d maybe go with the 2.5ct stone.

    Both of those have too many compromises IMO. With your budget you really don’t need to. I suggest you keep looking.

    The melee  H colored diamonds in the halo will face up whiter than the center stone, as larger stones will show more color. Hence u might notice the color difference between the 2.5ct center stone and your halo. I’m usually all for going larger, but in this case I’d select the 2.0ct or try to find a larger center diamond that is no higher than an H color.

    if the 2.50 had little or medium flourensce I would say go for it. But unless you are getting into the J color range it’s going to have a very strong blue tint. With a G color you will be getting a much whiter color. im all for big stones but white is more important to me than blue. Let us know what you decide.

    You’re very lucky to be able to have a choice between those two diamonds 🙂 I’m sure they’re both beautiful,l.

    @joya_aspera:  +1. I’d keep looking! And I’d really try and find ones I can see in person. If you’re spending that kind of money, I’d want to be 100% happy.

    @bluerose88:  If the halo diamonds are an H, you don’t want to go lower than that for the main diamond.

    @bluerose88:  i am colour sensitive so i would go with the G colour.  the measurements are very similar.
