Hi Joe, these two diamonds are of similar spec, I’m wondering if it’s worth the extra thousand to pick the second one with the better cut according to the cut estimator? Thanks!
The 1.05 F VS1 is certainly a nicer diamond. It has better optical symmetry (the 1.03 F VS1 has a dark inner ring in between the arrows). It also has reduced fluorescence compared to the 1.03 F VS1.
However, I instead of paying $1k more, you might consider the options below. They split the difference – a little more expensive, but not that much more, and they have better optical symmetry and reduced fluorescence compared to the 1.03 F VS1. Both will be eye-clean.
