I am thinking about buying the following diamond from James Allen. I am wondering if this is a good price and/or if you think I can do any better for the same price range. Here is the link to the diamond, where you can view the actual diamond under magnification. The CS rep said the diamond looks really great, I am just curious if this is a good price. Here are the stats as well, it scored a 2.0 on the HCA.

Item Number: 1221078

Color: G
Clarity: SI1

Table: 56.0%
Polish: Ideal

Girdle: Thin
Culet: Pointed
Fluorescence: Negligible
Measurements: 6.91*6.95*4.29

Thanks for your response!! I have been told the diamond I chose is also eye-clean so I will likely go with it. Does the ideal scope image look ok? That is the one aspect of diamond shopping that I have not done as much research in. I know to ask for it, but I am not really sure what to look for once I get it. Thanks again!

This diamond has the old AGS report which is still ok - the diamond looks fine. There is a tiny lighter area on the IS at around 1 and 2 o'clock but that could be the result of the backlighting or a touch of leakage - but even if so I don't think it is anything you would see with the naked eye. The diamond looks good!
