Diamond Query: Subtle Differences in the Idealscope/ASET Images of Two 1.2-Carat Brian Gavin Hearts and Arrows Diamonds


| Anonymous Reader


Hi Sebastian! Love the site, was hoping you could help me here…

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR DIAMOND RECOMMENDATIONS:

– Please tell me your budget as accurately as you can. – $10k and under

– Is the ring setting included in the budget or not? no

– Do you want to get the biggest bang for your buck? yes

Or are you looking for a certain clarity grade, color grade, or carat size?

VS2 or higher / H – K / around 1.25 and up

Tell me about your preferences!

It will be set in yellow gold w/ platinum prongs.

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR MY OPINION ON DIAMONDS:

– Please provide as many details as you can.

I can't decide if the 1.228 VVS2 which is nearly flawless but has some light return issues under the table is better or the 1.260 which has some more inclusions but the ideal scope looks cleaner and has less contrast marks. THANK YOU!

– Please provide the URL of the diamond or the grading report.

 

1.260 J VS2 HEARTS AND ARROWS ROUND

1.260 J VS2 HEARTS AND ARROWS ROUND

1.228 J VVS2 HEARTS AND ARROWS ROUND

Thank you for your inquiry. I am happy to help. The two diamonds you selected below from Brian Gavin are both excellent.

If I placed them next to each other, in person, you would not be able to tell them apart. They will both offer the same brilliance, fire, and sparkle. Are you leaning more towards one over the other?

Hi Sebastian!

I was leaning towards the 1.228 until they released this today and I switched. I know I'm splitting hairs, but I liked the light performance on the ideal scope better with the 1.223 and the proportions looked a little more balanced to me. I noticed some light leakage under the table on the 1.228.

Let me know your thoughts (if you have any from what you already provided)!

The subtle difference between the results of the Idealscope/ASET images will hardly if at all, be detected by the eye when looking at the diamonds.

If, however, you need help making a decision, then use images to help in your decision-making process. Otherwise, go with your gut. You may have wanted more technical advice, but at this point, we are splitting hairs, like you said. 🙂
