Been looking at this engagement ring and wanted some advice:
GIA Report #: 16265818
Crown angle: 35%
Pavillion angle: 41%
The price is $7800 and is set in a platinum 6 prong band.
Thanks for your opinions!
My concern is the 35/41 crown and pavilion angle combo. GIA rounds the numbers and the 35/41 is hovering around what we call the steep deep zone. Depending on which way the angles are rounded, if in a shallower direction the diamond could be perfectly fine, steeper and it may show light leakage. This basically means the diamond won't perform as well as it could do and you could see dark areas on the surface of the diamond in some lighting conditions.Date: 2/25/2009 1:29:00 PM
Yes it is already set. What type of info are you looking for from a hands on viewing? I did go see it yesterday and it was really white.
You can check prices of similar using the search tool above, punch in your specs and you can see what similar are priced at. Bear in mind the various benefits some of the vendors offer such as upgrade policies, buy back, images and photos, expertise and customer support etc. So it depends on your comfort level as to how you prefer to purchase and price comparisons.Date: 2/25/2009 1:45:34 PM
Thanks for the quick opinions and help.
The ring is at Costco, so I'd probably need to buy it to test it with the idealscope, which isn't a big deal because of their return policy. If it doesn't show any light leakage, do you think that is a good deal, or could I do better by using a forum vendor? If using a vendor, do you have any suggestions?
