Question:

I am torn between two similar quality diamonds. Both are .90 carat and are colorless. Prices are very similar as well.

I am looking for the diamond that will perform the best.

Which will be the better diamond to buy?


E color, SI1 clarity, Hearts & Arrow cut ($5,320) or

F color, VS1 clarity, Hearts & Arrow cut ($8,820)

I’ve learned a lot from your site and would really appreciate your advice.

Thanks, Aaron

Deciding Between Two Similar Quality Diamonds

Answer:

Hi Aaron.

I would go with the E color, SI1 clarity, Hearts & Arrow cut ($5,320).

It has a better color, but the clarity difference between these two side by side clarities is not something that you’ll likely notice when viewing, unless you view it under a 10x microscope or jeweler’s loupe.

Save the huge difference in money… Put the SI1 clarity, E color (like these similar diamonds here) into a nice mounting (like a pave mounting or a halo mounting) and you’ll be very happy with it. :)
