    I picked #2. I think cut is quite important, so it narrowed down the selection to #2 and #4. The carat is close enough that I don’t think the carat size matters so it boils down to color and clarity. For color, they’re both colorless so I don’t think you will see a difference. As such, I would pick the one with better clarity = #2.

    0.51, Signature Ideal, E, VS2, $1,421

    That one is a great deal.  I’d personally stay in the VS clarity, just because I had a SI diamond and was very unhappy.  Now i have a VS1 and I love it.

    @jfair:  Cut is the most important ‘C’ in terms of sparkle, so I would not compromise on Cut. Ideal all the way. So 2 and 4 would be the only diamonds out of these I would consider. For my eyes, I don’t notice color until the I-J range, so I am happy as long as it’s above that, so that’s why i chose 2 over 4, because I wouldnt be able to tell a D from an E with my own eyes, and therefore would not want to pay for the D.

    Beyond your list, I would personally keep the ideal, go down to G-H since I couldnt tell the diff and go down to an SI1 (as long as it’s eye clean). I’d take the savings from those things and get a bigger stone in the same price range, as I wouldnt be able to see the inclusions with my own eyes and therefore wouldnt want to pay for clarity above an eye clean SI1. But thats just me 🙂

    #2 is basically the whole package…. all your Cs are there, no compromised element, nothing to disappoint! I’d definitely go for that one, no question.

    @jfair:  it’s hard to say for they are all very close. 

    but I would pick one of the ideal cuts for sure And then look at those two and see which one has the less noticeable inclusion 🙂

    But I would also think #6 is equally pretty

    I think #2 would be a great choice because as @joya_aspera: said “all your Cs are there, no compromised element, nothing to disappoint!
