Hi, would you recommend any of these diamonds? do you think they would be eye-clean?
Thank you for your help.
It’s difficult to make a recommendation because I’m not as familiar with this photography style. It’s very hard to evaluate color.
The VS1 is priced like an SI1. When that happens, something is usually off with the color; e.g. this is a brown I instead of a yellow I (brown is cheaper than yellow). However, it’s impossible to tell for sure from this video. Likewise, the 1.11 I SI1 is one of the cheapest I SI1’s. Usually the cheapest diamonds are either not eye-clean (although this doesn’t look like a terrible SI1) or it’s a really low I (similar to a J). It might be the latter case, because even in this photography the 1.11 I SI1 seems to show more color saturation than the 1.13 I VS1 (assuming they can be compared).
Assuming the GIA report is correct (not the website), I would prefer the proportions of the 1.13 I VS1 over 1.11 I SI1. The arrows should be cleaner and stronger, but I can’t pause the video to check.
So I can’t make a rec, but those are my thoughts. I would usually avoid the cheapest I’s and the cheapest SI1’s. Most of the time, they’re cheap for a reason.
