    So, “Super Ideal” is just branding but the angles on the cert (including pavilion and crown) and images of the diamonds are important. The numbers part of me wants to tell you that there may have been better options out there based off the certs I could see (couldn’t see the BE one), BUT even if that’s true, you will still have a better cut than 90% of the diamonds purchased at chain stores, and especially compared to mined diamonds, have saved thousands!

    I am really glad you ordered two so you can let your eyes make the final call. You’re going to be the one wearing them, and if you find a diamond that makes you smile when you look down at it, you did good ☺️

    @melihbee I used RareCarat to find more vendor options but ultimately went with a diamond that was from one of their recommended vendors but not listed on RareCarat. If you’re looking for places to do research on angles, vendors, and all things diamond related, I’d recommend going to PriceScope.  
    again, let yours eyes be the judge. What more is the diamond than a pretty pebble after all 😉

    I’ve made a few purchases from Brilliant Earth and if they have a diamond listed as super ideal, then you can bet it is going to be beautiful and sparkle like crazy. I love Brilliant Earth and I trust them, they are a good choice.

    @melihbee:  They do look beautiful and I agree the super ideal does look like it is better from what I can see in your video. If the cut isn’t that great then a diamond can have a larger table making it appear larger. So exciting.

    I would go with the greatest cut over size, if i was in the predicament of having to choose. More sparkles with cuts! I want mine glistening… the size doesn’t compare
