I was hoping to run this by the forum for some collective wisdom (especially Leonid).

I've been looking at some loose ovals for a solitare engagement ring, around 1.5 carats. I recently went to a reputable wholesaler in NY and viewed several. One in particualr jumped out: 1.52 c, E, vs2. No bowtie at all and terrific fire, (yes, I made sure I took it out of those halogen lights to get a good look). Price: a little more than $9900.

One thing bothers me, however. The GIA didn't seem to reflect (no pun intended) what I was looking at. In particular, the diamond was quite shallow, aroung 55% depth, with a comparable % table. A lot of variation in the girdle as well (thin to thick). Good polish and symmetry, however, with no floresence.

So should I trust my eyes, or the paper? Or am I being just too paranoid?
