Hi all, my first post here. Hope everyone is doing well!

I'm after an engagement ring for my SO after dating for 7 years :)

I've just started looking, researching and trying to understand everything. I've narrowed down to this specific ring which I think would fit a GIA Triple X and AGS Super Ideal.

Given I'm still a pretty newbie at this, I'd just like to get a bit of additional help to see if I've missed anything. I've attached attribute information RE the ring below.

Thank you in advance!

You should make sure there is a clearly stated return policy including return shipping and insurance. To buy a stone sight unseen without images is just something I would not do. Have you run it through the HCA?

Definitely make sure you can return it for free (including shipping). Without those types of guarantees I wouldn't personally buy a diamond without seeing it (especially if I had to return internationally)

Oh yes, sorry I should have been slightly more exact -- they're bringing said diamond over for inspection, but it's not a commitment to purchase, so I'm not exactly buying it, but rather, they only want to spend money on courier and insurance on somewhat "serious" purchases.

HCA is giving me a 1.7 so that box is also ticked :)

It should also say what the fluorescence is like. The numbers and letters sound like i’ll be a very high quality diamond and you’d like no/faint fluoro to match. Strong fluorescence could make a diamond appear hazy/oily or glowing in some lighting environments.
