Please Help - Decision Between Two Diamonds


Recommended Posts

I'm having a very tough time deciding between these two diamonds (unfortunately no idealscope images). Any help appreciated - thanks! Diamond 2 is $450 more expensive than Diamond 1

Diamond 1
Depth: 60.2, Table: 58, Crown: 34, Pavilion: 40.6
GIA ex, ex, ex
0.7 HCA score (picture attached, the red seems to be deeper than option 2 - why is that?)
GIA report shows several twinning wisps and mentions surface graining

Diamond 2
Depth: 59.6, Table: 59, Crown: 33, Pavilion: 40.8
GIA ex, ex, ex
1.1 HCA score (picture attached - not sure why the red area doesn't seem as 'deep' of a red as option 1?)
GIA report looks very clean

I'd be tempted to go with #1: it's cheaper, it's visually the same size, it's at least as well cut (in fact I prefer it to the other, on paper at least), and it's almost certainly eye clean (the amount of ink on the plot is not at all a sign of what is visible... just of what is there).

Marginally higher crown, and marginally smaller table. However, it's marginal, based on personal preferences and in real life (i.e. seeing the two diamonds, preferably next to each other) I may well swap preferences; there's a lot to a diamond's appearance that isn't captured in the report data.
