Went ahead and bought this stone, too late to change the decision now, but I guess Im now looking for some affirmation, would be curious to hear your expert opinions.

Scores 1.5 on HCA, saw magnified pictures of it, there is a small inclusion on the table, but its eye-clean, hard to see it at 10x magnification. Was looking for a stone under $6K, wish could have done better but what can you do...

Would appreciate your feedback

All numbers look good. Yes, it is hard to see the inclusion, even at 10x.

Amazing find if you are paying less than $6000.

Thank you for encouraging words. Also would like to thank everyone here at PriceScope forum for all the info and support.

Adjusting for FX, I've paid $5,770 USD and with a simple setting it was just a bit over $6K
I'm waiting to receive the ring before Xmas and off we go to "lived happily ever-after".

Doesn't look like a "budget' stone at all. It's quite lovely. Nice angle combos. Great depth and spread and medium blue fluorescence. And that inclusion is a birthmark so that when you drop your ring off for repair, you can loupe it afterward and know it's yours.

Nice job! I call those "maximum value" stones. So you did everything right IMO.

Thanks everyone for positive feedback and for your encouragement :)
I'm sort of impatient to see how it looks in the setting as well.
