Hey everyone, I think I found the diamond. Been looking for an excellent performing stone, H/I color, around 1 carat, and eye clean. I''m thinking this is the one, but I wanted a few last minute opinions before I make the commitment.

I''ve seen this stone in person. Brian made me choose from several stones and this was the one I kept going back to. Suprising that it was the only SI2 out of his bunch. This thing was super eye clean, and I seem to be really happy with it. The price is wonderful.

I just wanted to see if you guys spot something that I''ve missed.


Here''s the specs:

1.092 ct H SI2 Round Ideal Cut

I would have gone better clarity and slightly bigger, but I''m getting a custom halo setting and the extra 3G''s are going to that beauty :razz: I can''t wait!

I'd have gone slightly smaller because the price really jumps once you hit 1 carat, but I'm on a budget


What really strikes me about this diamond is how perfectly round this one is. Most will be slightly off from perfectly round and if you look closely you can see it in the pictures. And if you look at the diameter and height measurements: 6.64-6.65X4.08, isn't that amazing?

Lovely stone. I would have also gone a better colour and clarity but if that''s your budget - then that itself is a lovely stone with nice proportions and more importantly, very good light reflector images.

Just make sure it''s ''eye clean'' being an SI2 or that whoever who is setting it (I assume WF) may be able to cover up any inclusions with the prongs. If you''re not colour sensitive and you love this stone -then go for it! Congratulations :)

It''s gorgeous!!

As long as it''s eyeclean, you went with an excellent cost saving combo. You won''t see any color in a stone that size, and no need to pay for a higher clarity if you can''t see anything in this one..


Congrats, we''ll be waiting for pics!!

That diamond is beautiful. I agree, amazing how perfectly round it is. I can''t think of a single down side, I say go for it!

I have been noticing more and more like this recently, the diameter measurements are getting supertighto with some it seems!

The sarin report shows 0.5degree range in pav angle (and also for crown angle)... is this a big range?

Ha! Scarleta, the cat isn''t mine, but I would like him to be - LOVE a puddenin'' cat as I call the kneading!
I Google avatar sites and check them out, some do cute animated animal ones like that, so I get them from there, many have free avatars for use on forums. Then all you do is save the avatar to your computer and load it into your personal section where it says custom avatar.

fatkid,

I have absolutely no idea if that''s a big range, hopefully one of the PS experts can answer that for you.
Sorry I couldn''t be more help!
