by pmd1117 » Aug 11, 2001 I've followed these postings and never seen anything on how some diamonds look darker then other diamonds of the same color since they are shallower (I've seen it in Diamonds 59 to 60.5). I am just about to purchase a 1.28 E VS2 Table: 58, Depth 60.5 (for 15% off Rap $8,200). (7.01-7.07 x 4.26mm) It's a beautiful cut (Hollaway score of 1.4) The problem is that it is a bit darker then other stones but just as colorful. My only concern is that it may look weird since I'm placing it in a platinum setting with two side Diamonds (F color which look very white-clear). I've spent a long time looking for a diamond and would like one but wondering if I should wait for another stone. Does the slight darkness devaluate the stone and will it look really strange next to the whiter side stones??? Please respond ASAP as I need to buy this stone tommorow.
