by buyingsoon » Mar 7, 2001 First off, I have to let you know that this site is very impressive. I plan on buying a diamond this weekend for a local 'direct diamond importer' and wish I had found this site sooner.The dealer I am working with only has EGL certs, so I am concerned that the grading may not be as strict as GIA. I read a previous post which discussed concerns around clarity (EGL said SI2, independent said I). Should I also be concerned about EGL's color grading? I figure carot weight and dimensions can't be different from EGL to others. I am curious becuase I want to go to the dealer with the appropriate market rates.Here are the specs of the diamond I would like to pick up. I saw it online and it seemed like the best value from their selection.1.63 F Si1 table depth: 60.9% table width: 57% crown: 15% pavilion depth: 43% girdle: medium, faceted polish, symmetry: excellent. price: $13529Am I really getting an Si2 from a GIA standpoint. I don't want this diamond if inoculations are visible to the naked eye. My understanding is that Si1 is still invisible without loop.Also, is it reasonable to make sale conditional on independent appraisal?Thanks in advance for your advice.
