    Hello All, hope everyone has been doing well. Just a quick question regarding certification. I recently took a 2.06 carat round and had it appraised by a GIA graduate gemeologist here in FLA. The stone received the following grades:

    I color
    I1 clarity
    girdle diameter 7.5-7.60mm
    Depth 5.35mm
    girdle very thick
    cutlet none
    table is 55%
    2.06 carats.......I was reading off of the appraisal so I hope you can understand the terms I just listed.




    My question is does Flourescense effect clarity, it has strong blue flourescence(as stated on appraisal) but it is "eye clean".....also the stone cost me $6,000....thanks for all of your help LADEOUX:confused:

    The cut of this diamond is shocking.
    It has a depth % of 71% and the girdle must be extremely thick.
    Run away unles you want to buy cheap dead glass.

    Hi Ladeoux,

    Is it round diamond? If it is, then 71% is too much indeed.

    Fluorescence doesn't affect clarity. It is good for the color - diamond should look whiter.

    Eye-clean for I1-clarity? Could you see inclusions with the naked eye?
