Hi all

Hoping some folks can help me out! I'm looking at an AGS certified Lazare Kaplan stone. It is a round brilliant Ideal Cut polish/symmetry/proportions (AGS 0); F (AGS 1) VS2; (AGS 4). It weighs .877 cts. It says that the fluorescence is "Inert" (does this mean none?) The crown is 35.5% and the pavillion is 40.9. The depth is 61.5 with a 55% table.

Everyone i've spoken with says the Lazare diamonds are 10% higher in price than other none brand diamonds.

Bottom line is the quote of $4,500. What do you folks think of that price and quality of this stone? What should the appraised value on the cert be for insurance purposes?

Thank you :appl:

Is there a reason you want this particular branded stone, or are you just looking for an extremely well-cut diamond?

I want a high quality diamond and I've been told Lazare is one of the best. Also been told Tiffany's buys Lazare diamonds for their rings. I think this is a great price but just want some affirmation.

If what you posted is crown and pavilion angles (not percents)it scores a 2.6 on the cut advisor. That is a very good rating, but I think for the money you want to spend, you could do better. I would hang around this site for a while if I were you. I have learned SO much here. Do a search and call some vendors on this site. Jonathan at goodoldgold.com comes very highly recommended for his superbly cut stones and great service.

There are many many more, but you might have to call or email the vendor for more info.
When I did the search I just checked the AGS-0 and H&A box.
