love the appearance, the proportions, and E/VS1 combo..

I really want extra assurance provided the IS/ASET when I spend ~15k

Yeah, that's what is giving me cold feet after reading all the posts here.

They can get you an IS, after you purchase before shipping if nothing else.

I like it. Personally, I wouldn't pay for a VS1 in a round. But if you are an educated buyer who specifically wants or needs (cultural reasons) high clarity, it's the least offensive.

@gypsy agreed - unfortunately this falls into one of those cultural requirements, but I would have much preferred an F VS2 if I could find one with the specs. I will try what you suggested though to get an IS. Thanks!

@flyingpig thanks for the suggestions! the b2c one looks like the crown may be thicker than i'd like (am I wrong in thinking that?), and the whiteflash one is way outside my price range.

hlaw, what does "What is the knock" mean?

I can't find a definition, even in Urban Dictionary.
