    @Korenne:  Do you have any pictures or have you seen them in real life? These specs are all so similar and really it comes down to your personal preference in terms of facet structure and what you like. Also what shape??? 🙂

    @Korenne:  hi there! If I were you, I’d post this one price scope. Theyre all pretty much experts and I think they’ll be able to help you out in selecting the best diamond

    @Korenne:  I would find something SI1, if you can. If you can’t (and you are SURE feathers aren’t going to bother you), then I would go with diamond 2!

    Thanks for your UPDATE (Reply # 10)

    In that case… for MYSELF my preference would be with Diamond # 1


    Not that there is anything seriously wrong with Diamond # 2 either…

    I’d certainly take it over Diamond # 3 tho.

    My colour preferences are as they are ranked…

    D-E-F = Colourless

    G-H-I-J = Near Colourless

    Hope this helps,

    i’d base my decisions off the inclusions. none of those stand out as much better than the others. i’d make sure they were all eye clean first

    I said three. SI2 should be fine, specifically because the diamonds are under a carat. As long as you can’t see inclusions, great! Also, color does not really statrt to show until K. I think the bigger diamond has the best of everything! Good luck!

    None. Cut is the most important thing for me. I would look again for stones that are GIA or AGS excellent cut. I would also check out Pricescope.com

    I don’t think I can choose the right diamond for YOU, but I can offer some advice/share my story since I recently had to choose my diamond.

    It’s VERY good that you know what C’s are important to you.  The C’s that are important to me are Color and Carat.  I went to a retailer that only sells Excellent/Very Good Cuts, so it was nice to not worry about that C.  The clarity for me was also important but soon realized (when I looked under a microscope) that there is very little difference between VS1/VS2 so that wasnt a deciding factor for me.  So back to the “important” C’s.  I knew I wanted at least a 1 carat.  Anything more would nice, but not necessary.  Plus, an upgrade in size would be a nice anniversary gift later.  Now, on to Color.  I quickly learned that this is very important to ME.  The jewelry store had to order in diamonds so that I could compare the difference between a D, E, and F.  To some people, the slight difference may not matter.  To ME, it did…. so I chose the D.  Even if the coloring is in the same “grouping” (D-E-F, G-H-I), there IS a slight difference, or else they wouldn’t be in a different letter category. 

    So, in the end, chose what you know would make you happiest.  No one is going to look at your ring, raise their nose and blatantly tell you that they can tell it’s a certain color grade, or that it would look soooooo much better if it was .02 carats bigger.  You know the truth and that will give you the confidence to wear it with pride…. like a boss!
