    Hello Gang,As some of you know I have been on the hunt for a very well cut princess diamond for my engagement. This has not been an easy task...but with a few comprimises I think I may have found something.I would love some of your expert opinions. GIA Cert
    Laser Inscribed
    54 points
    4.59 x 4.59 x 3.3 (i like the symmetry)
    Depth: 71.9
    Table: 69
    Girdle: Thin
    Culet: None
    Finish: Polish VG
    Symmetry G
    Clarity: VS1
    Color: G (really wanted F or below but..)
    Fluor: None
    Type of Flaw: Crystal, Needle (is this ok??)The following is a bit blurry..guy telling a guy sort of thing
    This is what I was told"Cr. avg. 37.5, 10.3 pav. avg 43.9 degrees 44.8 depth measuring 2.06mm to 2.09mm
    (I think this measurement should be 2.98 - 2.96mm)."Apparently "his guy" is not too familar with the sarin measurements so we are not sure.
    What do folks think?
    Thanks for all of the help so far, this site and you people have been teriffic

    Don't be [​IMG]Based on numbers it looks like a decent stone. If you want deeper analysis of the stone you might want to send it to David Atlas, AGA, who will run it on Sarin machine and tell you whether everything is all right.

    Thanks Leonid,The number for the crown angle i do have is 37.4. The problem is that this angle is in the 3A cut range, if this can be trusted. It seems strange that someone would cut this so well except for the crown angle.Should I worry about this. I don't really understand the concequences of a high crown angle. It seems that it would be hard to have a small table and decent crown height with such a high angle. My visualization skills must be rusty.Confused

    The crown angle is a bit steep, but everything looks pretty good by the numbers. I think you made a good find, and I'm sure Dave would be happy to examine it for you and offer his opinion.------------------

    Thanks guys,I think I will send the stone to Mr. Atlas, as you suggest. He seems to the one most willing to make an open opinion about fancy cuts. And by the way he has been very helpful over email thus far.Apperciate the support will keep you informed!by the way SteveL have you been having any luck with your princess cuts?

    Hi Amorphous, [​IMG]Looks very nice: Perfect square, good table and total depth. Crystal type inclusions shouldn't bother you - you shouldn't see them without a loupe anyway.If the crown angle is correct it should be good too.Hope the price is right [​IMG] Nice job.

    I bought the diamond from IGS or USA Cert diamonds, they had never worked with David before. They got in contact and there was absolutly no trouble. Their supplier sent it to him overnight fed ex and he had the appraisal done the same day (today). All smooth sailing. Mr. Atlas was very helpfull and free with his time, also very reasonable with price. I should get the diamond tues or wed, i choose certified mail, he felt they were actually more reliable.If you guys don't mind i will post the sarin and all to get your opinion, its coming with the diamond.Thanks
    Excited
