The only thing that stops me from really pull the trigger is that it has a thin to the slightly thick faceted girdle. Hmm decision decision

That's ok - I would buy it before someone else does. It's a super-ideal, it's got all the light performance images to back it up, and a great upgrade policy. What's not to love?

Thin to Slightly Thick is not an issue. It is the far extremes that can be an issue. If you are concerned I would ask to speak to the
gemologist.

Edit...I just checked both my Super Ideal stones (they are from different PS respected vendors), both are Thin to
Slightly Thick. Not an issue!

Exciting! Please post pics when the ring is done! I personally love the F VS2 combo-my emerald cut has the same color and clarity.

As others have stated, you are good to go on the girdle thickness.

Extremely thin and very thin runs the risk of creating a knife edge and creating an easy break point. Thick, very thick and extremely thick is normally the result of a stone that is cut overly deep and hiding carat weight in the girdle.

To obtain ideal status, you need to stay within thin-slightly thick.

Additionally AGS and GIA measures girdle thickness different. AGS, as applicable here, measures the peaks & valley of the girdle. So you would expect to see a little more variation. GIA stones only measure the variation in the valleys, so less variation is typically seen on the reports.

Below is a picture unedited and also edited to show you what I mean.

I might add, CONGRATS!

You will make several people jealous. It's hard to find those 1.9x stones right below the 2 carat mark. The stone has amazing proportions and throws big fire as clearly evidenced in the videos. The H&A, ASET and IS images all look great as well.

No worries whatsoever. Plus F-VS2 to boot. Your wife is a lucky lady and should be through the roof!

So use my microscope to make sure the AGS number inscribed on the diamond, on the girdle like the certificate, nowhere to be found :(, anyone knows why?

It's there... check all sides. WF makes sure the AGS number is not covered by the setting/prongs. The numbers are hard to locate but they are there. I use my pocket microscope 60-120x.

ok i found it, woot , I was worry for a moment there. yes it is quite hard to see because of all the light reflection. Also it is not black letter like on white flash page

Thank you
