Why do diamonds bright more than others?

I have two diamond rings, one of them is 1/5 of a carat and shines alot, the other one is 1/2 caract and is opaque. I cant decide which one to give to my girlfriend as an engagement ring. Also I want to know why one is less bright than the other one.
Ok, the 1/2 is not that opaque but it does not shine so much as the 1/5. I can tell the difference immediately which one is brighter.
The 1/5 I bought it from the store. But then I thought that the 1/5 was too small, so I bought another one in ebay which was 1/2 carat.

Diamond brightness is determined by the colour, clarity and cut.
clearer diamonds (a D is clearer than an F) allow more light in to reflect back from the facets at the back of the diamond.
Clarity (how many defects are inside the diamond) also stop light from reflecting around inside. The type of cut also determines how much light is refracted/reflected back out the top and sides. a "brilliant" cut diamond reflects a lot of the light back up and out, which makes it "sparkle" more.
