i'm gonna take the online diamond plunge and opt not to buy the .74 Ideal, H, SI1 stone the local place wanted to sell for $5,950. I've chosen this stone instead, ran it through HCA and it came back 0.8. I really want something that is fiery and sparkles.. like her <3, but without breaking the bank.

$4338
Signature Ideal
0.80 Carats
F
VS2
Depth 61.4%
Table 56.0%
Crown 35.0%
Pavilion 40.6%

Specs looks nice, it would be great to have an IS image to make sure. If you wanted to save money you could go down in color and clarity, but this is personal preference.

If I do purchase it, (real close).. I''ll be taking it to 2 or 3 local jewelers to have it inspected.

Looks good so far from the information you''ve provided. Blue Nile doesn''t provide quite as much data as some of the other vendors, but I understand that they have a good return policy.

Your choice is beautiful but you could save yourself almost $1000 if you came down in clarity to VS2 or VS1 . . . did you do a cut search on this site?

Sorry . . . I meant color and typed clarity . . .
It sounds like a gorgeuos diamond, I am sure you will be thrilled.

I bought a 0.43 Carat H, VS2 Very good cut from Bluenile that scored 1.2 on the HCA and it is absolutely beautiful. Very happy with it, and so is the fiancee. Yeah, I was scared too about not being able to see it before hand, but I mean really the cut is the key, and they give you all the information for that.
