I wanted to get your thoughts on some of the diamonds. I’m looking at lab diamonds from James Allen. Looking for something between 1.25-1.5 ct, VS2-VS1, E-D, hearts & diamonds cut (I understand I may be paying a bit of a premium), and non-blue hue. Utilizing both your cut estimator and price graph and analyzing the diamond symmetry, I found the diamonds below. Which (if any) would your purchase if you were in my shoes? Thank you!!!
Of the three, I would go with the 1.50 D VS2. I think the 1.5ct milestone is more valuable than the clarity grade. I think the small inclusion of the VS2 will be eye-clean.
However, you might also consider the option below. It’s also H&A on the grading report without paying the True Hearts premium and keeps the VS1 clarity grade of the other options.
