i'll choose the 1.16cts diamond. ;)

 

Why that one over the other 2?

thanks,

Jim.

this is very personal preference. there's no right or wrong. :P

 

among the 3 and i'll not choose the 1.23cts b'cos i don't like H color and i prefer the fluorescence to be none. 1.17cts is ok but i still prefer the 1.16cts. i don't like the girdle to be slightly thick (1.17cts). ;)

There is absolutely nothing wrong with fluorescence and indeed in many cases fluorescence is a positive for the diamond, not a negative.

 

Many years ago fluorescent diamonds were known as "blue-white", were very much sought after, and sold for significant premiums compared to non-fluorescent diamonds.

 

GIA back in 1997 did an excellent and exhaustive study on the effects of fluorescence on face up transparency and concluded that even strong fluorescence could not be visually discerned or detected.

 

This study deserves your attention and is a must read as it conclusively dispels the erroneous and inaccurate 'information' being dispensed on Internet Forums in the form of "advice".
