    Hi,


    after a diamond has been set, would I expect to see a 'reflection'
    around the middle of the diamond?


    thx

    What kind of reflection? Are you talking about a round diamond?

    ah, yes sorry....

    it's a round brilliant, 1.62ct, VVS1 however the color is K which I think was not a very good choice...my 'expert' friend provided advice. However I think from my limited knowledge it was a fairly good cut:

    table 62%, crown 13%, girdle-thin-med. facet, culet-none

    thanks for the quick respone!

    A horizontal line that runs around the middle of the diamond's pavilion is a reflection of the girdle and is normal. Is this what you are describing?

    yes that is what I'm referring to. Thank you.
    the above was something I had just purchased. Any feedback on my decision? This was my first purchase however as I'm beginning to get initiated into the world of diamonds, I'm beginning to question my decision/think I could've done better.

    Any inputs?

    Are you considering returning the diamond? If not, I don't see any need to make yourself nuts about it.

    I'm sure the body color must show a bit of yellow tint. To better assess the cut quality of the diamond, you'd need a Sarin report that shows all of the diamond's measurements and/or buy an ideal scope (see the menu bar above) and you will get an idea of the diamond's light performance. Read the tutorial on the site for more information about diamond cut.

    Hope that helps you. :)
