Hi Ginny:

The Sarin machine sometimes is inacurate for princesses, with a discrepancy which can't be explained by girdle variation or the definition of its thickness since it looks large. The issue is that there is a measurement issue. The correct value is depth-girdle-crown i.e about 3mm and not 2.07mm. I have noticed this on stones from other vendors as well. ;-)

Megascope measurements are more consistent. Ask for one or pick an appraiser that has such a machine. So don't worry about this issue too much. On paper it looks great (AGA class 1B I believe) and if there's something to worry about it is not this and appraiser will find it.

As far as the price is concerned, you may also want to check out something in G or H which may be larger for the same price or cheaper for the same size. ;-)
