I would like to know about Girdle. The Girdle measurement is 0.9% to 1.7 %. That is for 0.53 ct. Is it going to be chip?:read:

Which do you prefer over GIA or AGS certified? I purchase a stone which is 0.53ct D VS2 with ideal cut AGS 0(grade).
I am little lost because I showed my stone to apprasial to check if it is match to AGS report. The Appraiser said It is not VS2! Because of 3 crystal are in the center of the stone which himself graduate GIA who grade for SI1. WHAT do you think of VS2 or SI1 for my stone with 3 crystals ?

And also WHAT'S the value for 0.53 D VS2 with ideal cut and ideal polish and symmetry and none flurosence???

I like the grading on both equally as well. I prefer the AGS report overall because of the additional information it gives regarding cut proportions.

I admire his chutzpah, disagreeing with the industry "Gods".

Without seeing the diamond, if I had to take one appraiser's opinion over the AGS laboratory's opinion, I'd go with the AGS lab. They have more than one gemologist inspect the stone before arriving at the final grade, and are known for being stringent graders. Three crystals under the table don't automatically knock a stone down to an SI category. It depends on the size, color, location, and transparency of the crystals.

A good way to determine that would be to compare it with similar stones right here on the PriceScope listings. Just do a search.
