GIA # 2117963307
Carat = 1.01

I am considering a diamond with GIA# above.
Even this one has EX Cut grade, my friend tells me the crown angle is under while the depth is not enough.
This will result the diamond is less sparkling.

I wonder if this diamond ok and what my friend said is significant that naked eye can tell the difference?

This will be my engagement ring. Thanks a lot

It comes in at 1.1 HCA with all EX. It should perform very well.

i'd prefer more crown height with a smaller table.

Thanks.
When I choose this diamond, I have other diamonds to compare and their crown angles are like 34.5, 34 while depth is reasonable. ( All 3EX in Cut, Symmetry and Polish ). I try my best to compare their "fire" but I really can't tell the difference.

Also, this one is eye clean, at least to my eyes...I am not a professional and I can't tell, at least I am pretty sure the table is eye clean :)

Worth to buy? It's 6k USD.

I just hope my girlfriend will like it

Hey, if you've *seen* the stone, done your homework and compared, and you like what you see - who are we to tell you what differences your eyes should and shouldn't make out, and what they should prefer? 8) :sun:

True True. I pick this one as it is the cheapest among the one i chose while I can't tell any difference between them in terms of eye-cleaness and fire. Only the color matters a bit when i compared it with E color SI1.

Thanks all for opinion. I have paid and bought it
Now it is in the process of getting in a ring XD

Nice choice. Regarind seeing if it is eye clean, be sure to look at it out of the jewelry store lighting to be sure! Like, office lighting, outside in the sun, etc.
