The hearts and arrows look good, I’m not versed in reading much else though. I’d post on pricescope, where you will get a great answer! And if they say these aren’t good, they will show you what is!

It’s not a hearts and arrows diamond since the hearts look to be uneven (super-picky, I know). Light leakage isn’t terrible. Have you seen the diamond? Who is the vendor?

sydneybee4 :  you did the HCA correct, this tool is for rejecting stones (anything over a 2 means it is most likely not going to be a good preforming stone) you have a lab grown diamond and while the numbers work it doesn’t mean that it is a good stone. It is not a hearts and arrow diamond as confirmed above, the hearts are not cut well and the images are computer generated which sucks as it doesn’t give a good representation of the stone. 

I would pass on this one, but if it fits everything you are looking for and the seller has a return policy then you could buy it and see how you like it in person and if not then return for a refund

other posters are giving you great advice, and I’d add them when looking at images like this, take a strategic approach: divide the image in quadrants or think of the image like the face of a clock, and compare symmetry at every ‘hour’ – look for discrepancies in lines and patterns:

I’ve circled a few for you to get an idea:

sydneybee4 :  

did you end up getting it? Based on the scopes, there should be very little light leakage, so it should sparkle like a disco ball! My only hesitation, in your shoes, is that if you are paying ‘hearts and arrows’ prices, you should be gettings really crisp hearts and arrows. This doesn’t mean it’s not a great diamond ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m afraid I don’t know much about pavilion angles – but from what I can see the second diamond has even better clarity, though it is a hair smaller (half a mm – honestly so small you would likely not even notice if they were side by side…)

In your shoes I would probably go for the one that is the better value. You sound like you are easy to please (in that you want something sparkly – either definitely will!) and they are both the same colour and very good clarity. 

I collect jewellery and have several diamonds, including ‘wonky old cuts’ that the ‘triple X price scope’ brigade would never consider – and I can tell you they sparkle & flash beautifully.

When you have a diamond on your finger, especially one of the quality you are considering, all you will see is a STUNNING ring. You are t wearing the GIA certificate nor the idealscope image… go with your gut, and don’t let any one else’s criteria make you spend more than you need to ๐Ÿ™‚
