Can somebody look at the three links posted below? (all diamonnds are from blue nile) - and I''m have them inspected for "eye clean"

Everything looks good to me - the only pieces i am not sure on are the table/depth% ratios and the girdle - please help!

But are any of these diamonds worth getting?

(it says they aren''t available for purchase because they put them on hold until the visual inspection is completed!)


Any input appreciated!

No, these are all too deep and face up smaller than a 2 ct. stone should. Stick with 60-62 on the depth and you''ll get a better diameter. Look for a 2 ct. stone at about 8.1 to 8.2mm in diameter. I''ll see what I can find.

If you use the cut quality search and put in excellent-excellent for cut and check GIA and AGS for labs, you''re not going to find a well cut 2 carat stone in F-I color, VS2-SI1 clarity in your price range. So you''ll either need to go below 2 cts. or consider SI2 clarity. Don''t sacrifice on the cut.
