Hi everyone,

I've narrowed my search to the following 3 diamonds. Looking for 1.6-1.8ct, and after much research, hard to decide between the 3. Any thoughts? Would medium fluoro and the slightly not as optimal angles in option 2 and 3 be putting off enough to go with option 1?

I've attached pictures. Option 1 and 3 have the heart/arrows, option 2 only has the diamond picture. Option 3 also has the ASET.

All are round, G, VS1, super ideal cut and all with excellent polish/symmetry. All are GIA certified.

On paper all are nice. The two with the H&A-scope images are not H&A, but number 1 is better than 3 under the scope (more symmetrical) and the ASET is OK but not particularly good.

There are two issues here:

1. We don't know how #2 stacks up against the other 2. The single photo suggests that it is not H&A either, but it is not adequate evidence for or against anything.

2. We don't know what is important for you (and we miss any info on size: what's the diameter of the three?)

Of the three, I fear that #1 is the best cut (without being exceptionally well cut), but also the most expensive. I suspect #3 would come last - but I doubt you'd see much difference from #1 in real life (set in a ring, a little dirty, and flitting about with someone's hand movements).
