Hello everyone, this is my first post here, have studied on ps for 3 weeks. I appreciate your comments on this diamond:
1.126ct I VS2 Round H&A AGS000 $6026
Table 54.41% Depth 62.37%
Crown Angle: 34.63
Pavilion Angle: 40.82
Girdle: 2.16% Culet: None
The HCA score is 1.5.
The stone is from ( http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/2693/ )
Last week I visited the store, 2 hours drive, not bad. Tim showed me the stone along with others, to be honest I can't tell the color difference from G to I against white background, but I'm a newbie for diamond. The inclusion although one in the center, is white and eye clean. I bought it on spot and now waiting for the Solasfera Solitaire setting I chose ( http://goodoldgold.com/setting/SF-LMJ00548/ ).
I'm still a little worry about the I color, especially when I see the thread that Harriet's I color stone was appraised to be K. At first I thought because of's high reputation, an independent appraisal is probably not necessary, but now I'm not sure.
Since I can still change my mind easily right now, I wonder if I can do better within the price range of $6000-$7000. Here are other stones from.
