There are enough important things to stress out about

if your answer is 'neither' or any option other than the 3 above, you are either not paying attention to the question or have no valuable information for me. just move on!

so i may just go with option #3. i just don't know why a 'near colorless' would look shinier than a 'colorless F'?!!! maybe the lighting at the store?!
It sounds like #3 is the one then.

I have no clue about diamonds and I wouldn't be able to tell a near colourless from a colourless one. Not being able to see them they all sound very similar to me so I'd choose #3 based on price alone. If you think it's the one that looks the prettiest as well then I say go for it.

I believe you should get the best quality diamond for your budget. There isn't that much of a difference in the size of any of these. Did she ask for white gold?
I also prefer platinum, and a lot of jewelers have theirs on clearance because the prices have gone up and they just aren't selling.

No brainer: option 3.

I say the bigger the better.

They are similar enough in quality.

#3 sounds best but here is something to think about. I have a white gold ring and it will turn yellow gold slowly. Ask the jeweler about that. I was told after the fact that it can be coated again, of course at cost to me.

All are certified.

I'd have to see them to help you pick one...in person. I don't know how much homework you've done on this, but this may shed some light. The I(1) and I(2) has to do with how well you can see the natural inclusions in the stone. In both of these, it means that inclusions are easily visible to the naked eye. Seems like you get the F and H. As far as appearance of the stone, the H may reflect more light than the F due to the facets and other things about the cut. I would say that the stone reflecting and sparkling the most, has the best cut, and is a deeper stone than the others. If a stone is shallow, it will not reflect the light as well.

Hope this helps some...
