My concern is that the angle combo is entering what we call the steep deep zone, as GIA round the numbers the diamond could show leakage or not, depending on which way they are in fact rounded. So all you can do if you want to order it is to examine it carefully to see if there is any visible leakage or not in different lights, or to get an appraiser who is skilled in evaluating cut to check it out for you. What you are looking for is any dark areas on the top of the diamond, or a dark ring or partial ring around the table, if you can't see any darkness then you should be ok.Date: 3/27/2009 8:28:03 AM
it's from bluenile and i tried to ask for the image but they say they only provide that for their signature ideal. this one is ideal but sales claim it falls into their signature ideal grade but they cannot regrade it at this point and provide me the images.
what shall i do next then, shall i go ahead and order it? thanks
You are most welcome! VS2 is USUALLY eyeclean but it is prudent to check that it is eyeclean to your standards from all angles, especially with a diamond of this size. Also don't go by the plotting diagram of a grading report to judge whether a diamond is eyeclean or not as this can be misleading, the best way to tell is to get the vendor to check for you by inspecting the diamond.Date: 3/30/2009 9:28:24 AM
