Don't know for sure without the girdle info, but it's probably a nice AGA Class 2 make, probably 2B.

Your depth has a greater percentage than the table size, which Rhino points out usually makes for a brighter stone, and has usually been the case with most princess cuts I've examined.

It's got a decent crown height (9%), and the color/clarity of F/VS2 is a killer combination. It's a touch deep, but that's a pretty common malady of princess cuts.

Sounds like a pleasing stone. Which lab did the grading? Is it in-house grading?

Whatever it is, if you make the sale contingent upon it appraising out (by an independent appraiser) to your satisfaction, with right-of-return for ANY REASON, then you can't lose.

You might also consider using a $25 IdealScope in your selection process (available through the menu at the top of your screen). The poor performers can be quickly eliminated by even the layperson with a little bit of practice.

Thanks Richard! I appreciate the reply! The appraisal was done by Gemscan which I have heard mixed reviews from, but more good from reliable sources than bad. Thanks Again! Pboy

Very Good point Richard,We get this question often. I am sure your reply will be useful to many consumers Obsevations from our own ongoing searches for decent princess cuts confirm your & Rhino's conclusion.

Those crown/pavilion angles sound good and is a stone I would take to the next step of getting an optical analysis. Can the place you're getting the stone from provide a 3d model of the diamond via it's Sarin?

Rhino, The diamond was graded by Gemscan - They said they don't use a Sarin machine rather some sort of scope (I can't remember the name but I know I have it written down somewhere). I believe they do have a Sarin though! Can I ask how much this kind of diamond would sell for roughly??? Thanks Pboy
