i also attached a screenshot of the videos too. The 1.5ct looks a little bit cloudier to me than the 1.7, but don’t know if the 1.7 looks symmetrical.

Fairly inconclusive...

However, since the same retailer seems to have both stones in hand, the easiest thing is to ask for a video where both diamonds are visible together, so you (and we) can get a better sense for relative size, brilliance, fire and patterning, as well as solving the issue of "transparency" (which is not the same thing as clarity) and any noticeable difference in colour (which I expect not to exist).

FWIW, both appear to have a bow-tie, but of the pleasant (contrasted and variable) type.

Yes they sent me one of three together. The left is is the 1.7 and the 1.5 is the one in the far left. The middle one is already sold. Any advice on why the 1.5 looks bigger???

It doesn't particularly look bigger to me, but it 's perfectly possible that it actually faces up as large as (or larger than!) the 1.70: differences in depth and girdle thickness can easily result in a 1.50 looking as large as a 1.70. Also, table size plays a role on how large a diamond looks. Finally, camera angle is "not your friend" in the sense that it is not consistent (especially with stones held in one hand and the camera in the other), so it makes it more difficult to assess size precisely.

Presumably the vendor has lab reports stating sizes? Have they shown these to you? Are the reports from reputable labs?

Do you have any more information about these stones? Like certificate?
It would be good if you can share them here.
