Out of those 2, I would say B.

but honestly, cushions hide flaws very well.  I have an eye clean SI2 and I am very happy with it.  You do have to be careful with color because cushions show the colors more, but I have an I and it’s very white to me.

Out of curiosity, why go so high with clarity? You could easily go at least VS2 with a cushion!

Honestly, neither. The reason being that I would not pay for the premium of VVS or IF when I could pay less for SI1 or VS2 that are known to be eye clean and mind clean. That would allow me to go up in size (if I wanted). I am of the thinking “why pay for what you can’t see”? Especially in a 1 carat. (That’s not to say that 1 carat isn’t a significant size, but it isn’t so large that slight imperfections would be noticable to the naked eye.) Also, I would make sure that the cut of the stone is within the recommended proportions to make sure I was getting a well performing stone.

Just my two cents.
