They all seem to be nicely cut diamonds. There are videos for all three and and they seem to be decent clarity, though the videos on Blue Nile are not so great in showing the clarity. You would be ok with any of them, though you are paying a steep price increase for their signature ideal diamonds which are priced in line with branded diamonds. I can really help you pick between the three as I dont have enough info and that is a service you should be asking of Blue Nile especially as they have the diamonds in their inventory and can look at them for you.engslytherin wrote: ↑Jul 2nd, 2017 2:21 pmHi, thediamondexpert, Thank you for the responses
On your recommendation, I am going to a better cut. The following diamonds have similar parameters with VS2, H colour and sig ideal cut. Of the three which would the most optimal choice?

Thank you for the response. I've learned from your comments how to further narrow down my search to look for a more ideal cut.
Any comments on the following?

All are great cut diamonds, which is to be expected as they are all higher end AGS ideal cuts.

To keep the form as info only I prefer not to mention specific vendors especially as my opinions might be deemed biased as I work in this space. I would think that reviews and price comparisons would be a good jump off point.(Bean) wrote: ↑Jun 26th, 2017 4:38 pmI was just wondering which online sites in Canada are the best to deal with? I am looking for a ring...not Diamond but wondered if anyone had any suggestions...
I have looked at blue nile (which prices in canadian and ships here for free)
Has anyone dealt with Szul or Super Jeweler.
Also what is the experience as far as border and taxes/duties?

It is very rare that an SI1 inclusion would affect light performance. If it did it wouldn't be eye clean. If you can see it it can't be blocking light and would show up on the ASET as green or white. If it were I1 or I2 you would be in the range where light performance is compromised, maybe even a poor SI2. A center inclusion is more just a compromise of personal preference as they are usually priced lower.henrythomas5788 wrote: ↑Jul 10th, 2017 3:41 pmDiamond is eye clean but it has an inclusion dead center and I worry this will effect the light of the diamond and the proportions are not ideal.
I have seen ratings like on enchanted diamonds that still ranks it high though 3.40 Carat G Color Round Diamond, SI1, GIA Certified
Here are some attached actual images along with ASET and IDEAL Scopes.
Any thoughts? Was also comparing it to the below stone:

I ended up paying $39k for the 3.4/G/SI1 vs. this one at $44K at 3.37/H/VS2

I would give the thread a read there is lots of valuable info that will aid in your making an informed decision.engslytherin wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2017 3:55 pmHi TheDiamondshopper,
I have decided to focus on the signature cut, and go with a lower carat in the .60 range with a VS2 or higher. I have noticed that some VS2 diamonds have inclusions that can be seen on their 360 views. Do these inclusions such as feather, clounds and etc, affect the reflection and brillaince to a great degreee?
I am looking to get one final feedback, before purchasing one of these diamonds. Which of these are duds, studs, and priced reasonable.
One more time, a huge thank you!!!

After having a few people come in trying to upgrade a diamond they paid $15000+ for only to find out it was over graded by a non reputable lab and worth about 1/3 I figured there is a good need for consumer education in this area

I'll have to admit I've never heard of IMp2 for clarity, so I had to google it. It seems it is a grading term outside of the GIA scale, which is worrisome as IF-I3 is the industry standard so immediately I think it is tricky working to avoid liability of mishearing.japaul32 wrote: ↑Jul 12th, 2017 11:43 pmHi TheDiamondShopper,
I recently saw a "I Am Canadian" diamond at a local jeweller. The certficiate states that is an IMP2, and the jeweller says that is the same as an I2. It's a .51 ct, H colour and excellent cut. It's a very nice diamond, but I've never heard of an IMP2 diamond. Is this infact an I2 stone?
Edit:. I checked the certificate number online and the cut is good, not excellent as the dealer indicated.
