We can't evaluate an OEC without pictures of the faceting. Can you take a direct photo straight into the table, showing the center facets? This stone is a little on the deep side, but it could still work.

No, that is not a particularly good OEC. That site takes a 25% commission, so never buy through that site. You can bargain more on price if you go directly through the vendor.

This seller is a well known, trustworthy PS member who is an avid collector and sometimes sells things she decides not to use herself. I don't know if this stone is still available, but it is $3000 and looks a little better cut than the one you linked. It's number 3 on the bottom left. You can also ask her if she has anything else she might part with in that price bracket.


I'll see if I see anything else that looks like a possibility.

Thank you for your information. Unfortunately, that seller will not sell overseas, so that avenue is out.
Could you please tell me what makes the first diamond "not a particularly good OEC"? Many, many thanks.

You want an OEC because you want to clearly see those chunky facets and floral pattern that they're known for. The stone you're interested in doesn't look sharp to me so at that price, I'd ask for more photos, if not a video.

Hi, are you able to access this video


I selected all of the above mumbo jumbo, put it into my search engine and was able to scroll down the page and look at the video that I requested.

Thanks for your kindness.

I think the last stone you posted looks pretty. Any video?
