  1. Thanks so much Davidelevi! Neither stone has any fluorescence, and to be honest price is almost the same so am keen to just get the best one really. If I DM you the video links can you compare? I didn’t want to post them as unfortunately I haven’t been able to reserve either diamond. Would really love a second opinion though!
  2. Thanks so much Furqan, really appreciate your advice. As I'm buying it online, I won't be able to examine it properly until I've bought it but there's a 30 day return policy so hopefully not too much of a risk. Out of interest, which of the two options would you prefer? Thanks.
  3. And here is option 2 which is VS1 instead of VS2 OPTION 2 GIA Excellent 1.4 carat, G, VS1 dimensions - 7.11 - 7.16 x 4.41 mm depth - 61.8% table - 57% crown angle - 34.5 degrees pavilion angle - 40.6 degrees Crown height - 15% Pavilion depth - 42.5% girdle - slightly thick, faceted 4% polish and symmetry - excellent HCA score - 0.9 this image is actually face on, so not very easy to compare with first one. Do you think I will be relatively safe buying either of these diamonds? And if you were choosing which would you pick? Thank you so much for your help!!
  4. Hi all, I need to buy an engagement ring for my girlfriend this week. I’ve spent weeks reading up online regarding the perfect proportions so hopefully have narrowed it down to two good stones. But to be honest I really don’t know what I’m looking for and am so nervous about spending this much money online without seeing the diamond! Do you think one of you could help me with the final choice? I’d be so grateful! Both diamonds are a similar price although option 1 is a tiny bit more expensive. here is the critical information: OPTION 1 GIA Excellent 1.3 carat, F, VS2 dimensions - 7.09 - 7.11 x 4.31 mm depth - 60.7% table - 56% crown angle - 34.5 degrees pavilion angle - 40.8 degrees girdle - thin to medium, faceted 2.5% polish and symmetry - excellent HCA score - 1.1 (appears 'bigger'. HCA says "Should sparkle beautifully and looks bigger than usual for it's carat weight. Low HCA scores and bigger sized diamonds can appear dark when viewed close up; but these stones can be great for earrings and pendants." Should I be worried about this? I don't want it to appear dark) Sorry the image isn’t very hi res, it’s a screen grab or a 360 video so unfortunately it’s not face on, but hopefully gives some idea of colour and sparkle. It looks good on the video but I can’t send link as diamond isn’t on hold yet. Will post option 2 separately. Thanks!
