you could always have it recut to an acceptable looking .90ct diamond.
Do a price search based on that carat weight and allow about $500 for the recut and work to fit the smaller diamond into the mount. This diamond could actually be very nice looking if set upside down :)

Thanks for the response Cut Nut.

So I take it the diamond is not such a good cut. As a novice I could use some help - What particularly makes this diamond "bad"? The diamonds I have seen so far only have the details of the Table and Depth (standard GIA info). I'm pretty set on a certificated 1 carat, F, VVS2. What characteristics (% and stuff) should I be looking for?

Thanks:confused:
