Re: 2.01 Ct Asscher Cut Diamond, Karl K please help evaluate

I know nothing about asscher cuts but the table does look big compared to what is usually recommended on here in your new videos. There is no leakage I can see and it still looks nice. Can you shine the light reflecting off the table in a photo then maybe some of the experts can see the size of the ...

Re: 2.01 Ct Asscher Cut Diamond, Karl K please help evaluate

Re the Octavia's, Dancing Fire posted the other week about there being only 3 Octavia's and I went to look for them out of interest. I see they are just listed as Asscher's but when you open the AGS report it says on it if they are Octavia. Ofcourse you can always ask Jon at Good Old Gold too if you...

Compromise until you have an even balance of the 4 C's including Cut and Carat weight too. e.g. D-F IF - VVS2 Ideal Cut G-H VS1-VS2 Very Good Cut I SI1 Good Cut Let the carat weight fall at your budget price point. This is what high end jewellers teach the buying public. This means for your budget y...

Re: Next move? Over graded

I don't mind charity but not helping business men who are not employing me. Oh and they promoted their friends they have bought from over and over and over and over again. But then I am rude for noticing this. I sometimes think they are unwise, for just being too into diamonds and they become a boa...

Re: Next move? Over graded

No no no, frozen spit was the term used by Gypsy's predecessors who promoted 1 carat D VS1 stones, not my term. So you never read the forum pages from back then, with all your time here, you will see the stone promoted were the opposite of those promoted now. Oh but I am wrong, and the people who ha...

Wow indeed. He has a jeweller. I am not trying to poach him to make an online sale.

Re: Next move? Over graded

I suppose though a rare D VVS1 6 carat diamond will hold its value the same as a 5 carat rare ruby. It is just that the cut has not been selling the lower rubies to everyone. A ruby is rare to find too. Can't find a good unheated one of good size for much under $20,000. Therefore rare diamonds are s...

Re: Next move? Over graded

Yes the public has lost interest in diamonds because they are not seen as valuable anymore, just what you can see with your eye and a good cut. I am not being mean with this statement I believe this is what has happened. So much has been written about how they are not rare, there are stockpiles, peo...

Re: Next move? Over graded

Very good point. * * * Size, not a deal breaker, but based on what I see here I think a g-h, vs2-si1 (eye clean), excellent cut (see gypsy's post) diamond in the 1.70-1.80 should be reasonable. Am I flexible? Sure. But I want a nice looking ring that would be of value objectively. I think you may ne...

Re: Next move? Over graded

The rest of the world did not change with Pricescope, lots of people still value Colorless and near colorless (G-H) stones. What happens if you try to sell a stone and most people say oh wouldn't go below a G with Ideal Cut. What happens to the 3 carat K SI1s then. They get sold on ebay ofcourse. Ot...

People are made fun of here for wearing large diamonds with very low clarity and they are called frozen spit.

Maybe next years fashion will be diamond doublets, like opals have, as you only seem to need the
flat top view here but make sure they are old cut remember.

Why spend so much money on something then that is so small. Lots of things are sparkly. The one that always gets

Re: Next move? Over graded

Re: Next move? Over graded

I would prefer VS1 to SI1. I think it gives an all over better quality. We used to hear that we should pick a balanced stone meaning that all C's are a balance. I would like one of the appraisers to come here and say that a VS1 is not required? Yes it is not required but then why not get an J SI1 be...

He does have beautiful curved lines though which is not in VC, SK and CVB's etc. work. Sort of a flow and curve and
perfect different proportions and angles. They are all beautiful but Leon's is something else!
