Thanks for all your helpful information and tools you’ve provided. It’s been the best place for me during my diamond search.
I’ve been searching all over the internet for options of 3+ carat diamonds and wanted to get your thoughts on some finalists.
Here they are, in my personal ranking order

Number 6 seems like a good deal on paper, but I’m concerned by it’s brown hue. I appreciate your time and effort you’ve put into the site, so if there is a donate option I can use to contribute if I use a site without an affiliate link, please let me know.
Of these, I would go with option 5. Option 2 is a blue HPHT. Options 1, 3, 4, and 6 are obviously CVD from the video based on the color/strain/inclusions. Maybe it’s because I’m less familiar with LB’s video style, but I couldn’t immediately tell the growth method for option 5 from the visual characteristics (had to look at the report), so that might indicate it’s a nice CVD.
