As cmbr indicated, Without knowing the other angles, it’s almost impossible to say. A 60/60 diamond could perform very well, or not so well. The GIA rated it “ideal” cut, but their parameters for that are a lot looser than some other labs.

bento11:  A GIA VS2 shouldn’t ever have visible inclusions. I have a VS2 and can’t find anything with a 30x loupe.

bento11:  a vs2 will be eye clean for sure you would need a loop to find anything in it. I saw you’re thread earlier about the si1 and si2 can you request a photo? Either way I think you’ll be fine with the vs2 but is the color I what you really want?

I would absolutely not buy that first diamond. You can run the numbers through the calculator yourself, but it scores a 5.7 on the HCA. Anything under 2 is ideal. I understand that not everyone is in the market for a superideal diamond, but that one really doesn’t score well.
