Hi Scott, welcome!

 

Assessing any diamonds purely on the basis of the very limited information on a grading report is a well-nigh impossible task; for fancy cuts, any info not coming in a visual form may be an aid to assess value, but it tells you very little about how the stone looks. I'm not sure what anyone here can tell you in terms of solving your dilemma (or trilemma) - we haven't seen the diamonds, and we don't know your aesthetic preferences.

 

The one thing I am almost certain about is that if the "F/VS1" EC went to GIA it would not come back as F/VS1; it may still be the nicest of the three, though, and no amount of paper is going to change the way it looks or whether you like it more.

If you decide it’s the right stone for you as long as the grading measures up, agree on a price and ask the jeweler to send it to GIA. If GIA agrees with the grading, you pay the GIA fees as well as the shipping. If GIA disagrees, he/she pays the fees and the deal is off.
