Hi All

I am looking at purchasing a diamond posted on Adams instagram earlier this week. I instantly fell in love with the chubbiness, the faceting and the proportions - it ticks all my boxes!

She's a GIA N SI2, but Adam said he was hoping she'd come back as an L - and that the deep crystal shows up more on the video than in person.

I've never had an SI2 before, and as I'm in Aus, I can't have the diamond posted to me for personal review.

Here is the GIA report:

Would this crystal bother you on such a chubby faceted stone? Has anyone had experience with an inclusion that showed up more on the video than in person? Does anyone think perhaps I should ask for more videos in other lighting conditions?

I regard Adam very highly and this isn't a post to question him in any way. I'm just looking for advice from the experts!

It would be sitting next to my AVC wedding band with L/M stones.

I would request videos in more and different lighting environments, and maybe even rooms with darker walls. Maybe he would be willing to do that...

It's a very pretty stone. :)

Thanks you @LLJsmom I agree, it's very pretty and I think I gasped out loud when I saw it for the first time! I will ask Adam if he's willing to provide some extra videos to help.

I think videos are highly magnified and it's probably harder to see if you shrink it down to life size. Depends how eagle eyed you are but definitely ask for more videos and try to view them at a distance.
P.s it's a beautiful stone, Adam picks really nice ones :kiss2:
