Help selecting a diamond, down to 2!

Recommended Posts

Hi All- Can someone please help with H&A images for 2 diamonds? Both are very similar in details but differ in carat size. Based on your review, I would buy one or the other.

Both have more than acceptable H&A images and the angles and stats on both are good.  Go with the cheaper or larger one. 😉

Based on your response, I am leaning towards 2.4 one. Can you review idealscope and let me know if this is good?

 

Thanks!

This IS image is not as nice as I would have expected based on the numbers provided.  This could be the result of the photography just as easily as that of the stone.  Maybe the better way to choose between these two stones is to have the vendor show them to you side by side in a video and you can then judge for yourself how they each look compared to eachother.

It looks nice on paper and in the reflector images; the video is a bit meaningless, but I assume it's a show of goodwill from a remote merchant. It is a reasonable price. As long as you have some form of return/refund if you really don't like it, I would say that you have a winner! If it's a totally final sale, then be really sure that it's what you (she) want(s).
