Hello,

My first post here. I am looking for engagement ring for my girlfriend. Here are my requirements:

Budget ~$6000
Carat: ~1
Cut: 3 EX
color: I or above
Clarity: VS2 (Eye clean)

After 2 weeks of searching and putting numbers on HCA. Here is the best diamond I found and they happened to have ASET and H&A images in their virtual inventory. Looks like there are some light leakage around the dark arrows. Otherwise, I don't see anything wrong with the diamond. Please take a look and any feedback or suggestions are welcome. I appreciate your help!
$5300

Crown is lower than we recommend. Coupled with a thin girdle, that's a chipping risk. I would try for a crown angle of no less than 33.5 with a goal of 34.

Ok, I updated my diamond search filter. Do you recommend these filters?

Depth: 61%-63%
Table Size: 54%-57%
Crown Angle: 34-35
Pavilion Angle: 40-41

Some will allow a 58% table
