Both round diamonds with GIA cert.

Diamond #1

1.29 ct

cut-excellent

color-F

clarity-SI1

depth-61.2

table-57

polish-very good

symmetry-excellent

girdle-thin

culet-none

flourescence-none

measurements- 6.98-7.03x4.29

cost-$7441

 

Diamond #2

1.20 ct

cut-excellent

color-G

clarity-VS2

depth-62.4

table-55

polish-excellent

symmetry-excellent

fluorescence-none

measurements-6.78-6.81x4.2

cost-$7440

 

So basically the diamonds cost the same but diamond #1 has better color and size but worse clarity. Diamond #2 has better clarity and has XXX GIA ratings so I can't decide. I basically want an eye clean diamond that looks colorless to 99% of people. Please help me out. thanks

You left out the color grade on diamond #2.

 

Bad omen?? :)

 

 

Sorry about that. I edited the post to show it's a G. I called the online retailer and they said the SI diamond is eye clean but I don't know if he physically examined it. I was hoping that pro's like you could help me decide what seems like a better diamond just based on the stats available. Thanks

You're skeptical because you're not sure if your on-line Vendor has or has not seen and examined these diamonds.

 

Which means that (very commendably) that you're looking for more info than just the stats. So how do you realistically expect us to give you a clear buy/no buy recommendation on diamonds we have never actually seen?
