I found 2 diamonds online, similar prices. May only request one to view in person and therefore would like to ask which one is better on paper? The 3.11/VS1 actually doesn’t look as clean as 3.04/VS2 according to GIA reports, although it has higher clarity grade? 3.04/H/VS2Online Photo/Video https://www.withclarity.com/diamond/2335217197/3.04-Round-H-VS2-ExcellentGIA: http://dna.braintreeeasysoft.com:85/Imaged/Certificate_Images/2334302877.pdf 3.11/H/VS1Online Photo/Video https://www.withclarity.com/diamond/2316981124/3.11-Round-H-VS1-ExcellentGIA: https://www.laxmidiamond.com/certifiedstone/certificate/LD18106808.pdf Thanks in advance for your input and advice.
Definitely the 3.04 H VS2. It has much better proportions and you won’t notice the difference in clarity. Notice how the arrows are so much stronger – they fade out with the higher 41.8 pavilion angle of the 3.11 H VS1.
However, I think you could save some money with the option below. Similarly optimal proportions, but $5000 cheaper.
