Having a hard time deciding between these two diamonds. i feel the JA is a better value with better proportions? Any advice? I’ve seen the shane in person lots of sparkle, just want the JA to sparkle more. https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut/1.50-carat-f-color-vvs2-clarity-excellent-cut-sku-13754081. https://www.shaneco.com/loose-diamonds-and-gems/loose-diamonds/brilliant-round-natural-diamond/p/21G1CAM
To make the photography consistent, here’s the diamond from Shane. Yes, the diamond from Shane has worse proportions and optical symmetry and is $3k more expensive, so the JA diamond is a better deal.
You might also consider the options below. The 1.54 F VS1 would trade one clarity grade for $3k. The 1.5 F VVS2 stays at the same specs for $1.5k less. And then for the price of the Shane diamond, you could hit 1.7ct.

OK, then in that case the JA diamond will look better with better proportions and optical symmetry.
Perfect thank you. Girlfriend loved the sparkle the Shane diamond had in store, but I knew I could get something better for a bit less elsewhere! I was reluctant to buy online not seeing it, but worst case I figured I could always send it back If it doesn’t have the wow factor.
Thanks for the reply! Already have an order placed with the JA diamond. Just wanted to get a second opinion on it. Appreciate your help. Crazy the makeup Shane has
