Thinking of Brillant earth but specs?

I went to the BE showroom in my search and the specs you listed would definitely be sparkly! Cut is king! The lab diamond looks no different than a mined diamond, so you can always look at a mined diamond with the same specs and see what that looks like.  Their rings were very nice but I ended up going custom and actually used one of their settings as inspiration!

Super ideal, G, VS1 will for sure sparkle. I looked on BE for hours, but keep in mind some of their “super ideal” cut stones aren’t really that. I think it’s just marketing when it comes to their version of super ideal vs. ideal.

I plugged in the specs from the certificates for each of the stones I was looking at into the HCA tool. If it scored under 2, I kept it and then watched videos of them, or requested videos if one wasn’t posted. I think the ones I ended up narrowing it down to were actually just “ideal” cut and scored better than the “super ideal” ones. I ended up going with Clean Origin though, not BE since their prices were a little better.

I bought my wife’s diamond from them (had the setting made elsewhere) and it is GORGEOUS.  It is a natural diamond but their lab diamonds look amazing!  With those specs, it will sparkle for sure.  The diamond I bought had the same specs except it is an H in color.

Picture for reference.

Mine is a lab diamond from Brilliant Earth and it sparkles like crazy (especially in places with bright lights, like the supermarket). It’s a 0.76 carat ideal cut, G color, VS1, excellent polish and symmetry.

I looked at lots of diamonds when I was in their showroom, natural and lab, to compare ans all were their super ideal cut. It’s very sparkly!
