Ok hopefully on the last leg of my diamond choosing saga... I greatly appreciate all the help and insights so far from the board members here!!!
The scope image for the competing 'I' diamond I was waiting for finally came back, and so it's come to this - the VVS2 H diamond I've been drawn to so far (eye clean, mind clean, large spread w/not terrible light return...) vs the I diamond, which has great light return but has a knot towards the upper left girdle, and a feather towards the lower right girdle.
Any thoughts/opinions are welcome, even if you've weighed in before
Most fundamentally, I'm wondering which of these two diamonds individuals here would pick for themselves? Yes yes I know the real answer is some third diamond which isn't listed here lol, but between these two, which would you prefer for yourself five years out if you had to choose between them? Not that I still won't consider 3rd diamond suggestions either mind you...
