    Need help with finding a diamond

    In my opinion, yes. ACAs are AGS000 graded stones with Ideal Light Performance, Symmetry and Polish. However, I wish you could see some well cut "I" stones so you can decide for yourself. I own two J colored Super Ideal Branded stones. I cant really see any color in the small one (.46) but...

    Need help with finding a diamond

    You can go with eye-clean SI1. If you were willing to do an IGI H you could probably do a GIA "I" but you really need to go look at well-cut stones to see how your eye interprets color. Edit...I checked JA and BN and it looks like you'll have to go down to an "I" to get 2 carats...

    Thoughts/Opinions on engagement ring?!

    Adding my comments from the other thread to this one. I think the setting is lovely and the stone looks big. As far as cut quality, color and clarity you would have to post a straight on shot of the stone and we may or may not be able to tell you anything. Is the stone certified by like GIA or...

    Opinions on engagement ring?

    I see you have two threads going. You need to hit Report Concern and ask the Mods to delete one of the threads. I see you have straight on picture in the other thread so maybe this thread should be deleted.

    Bezel Pendant Help!

    I have a pendant on a small single bail. The pendant does not crawl but the chain will move around so that the connector is at the side of my neck and I have to put it in the back. Pendant stays at lowest point though. I think its a 17 or 18 inch chain. Can't remember. Its a 1.08 OEC...

    Opinions on these fancy yellow elongated cushions?

    I think the JA stone is really pretty. I dont care for the leibish stone because it has some leakage outside the table on the E/W and N/S ends. I would talk to DBL also. Show him what you found/like and see if he has something or can find you something.

    Bezel Pendant Help!

    Do be aware that a lot of people say that fixed bezel pendants do crawl up your neck as you move. Not as important with multi-station necklaces but with one station it may not stay centered. Maybe @distracts and others can comment whether they have this issue.

    Help with SI2 diamond for engagement ring

    It looks like it would be eye-clean to me* but sometimes when you see feathers at angles you can pick them out (sometimes this matters, sometimes not so much). Ask JA if it is eye-clean or if it has a durability issue.

    Help Please - Oval Connoisseurs

    I would suspect this SI1 is eye-clean (ask Jon). I might suggest you go up in size (and down in clarity) to get a stone that has Ideal light return but still on the bigger side. Actually its an AGS000 stone (Ideal Light Performance, Polish and Symmetry). Anyhow, I would call Jon and talk to...

    Strong Fluorescence - Opinions on Engagement Purchase Please!

    You need to take it out in bright sunlight and see if it turns milky. That being said, Strong Fluorescence being an issue is very rare. I seriously doubt it is an issue. According to a study GIA performed, only about 1% of diamonds exhibit a negative effect from SF. Matter of fact, Brian...
