Hi guys, I've been doing my research and I think I've found a pretty good diamond. However, I do have some concerns. First, it is graded by EGL, and from what I understand, they can be a bit "soft" in their grading. As such, the H color worries me that it may be a little closer to the I side of the spectrum. Also, the girdle is thin, how much of a problem will that be? It scores a 2 on the HCA, but that's using the % rather than angles, and I know that angles are preferred when using the HCA. Finally, the crown seems small, and the table is a bit on the small side too. I'll try to attach the grading report to see what you guys think.

Thanks for your help! The price is definitely right, but I want to be sure before I buy anything, especially online when I won't have a chance to see it first.

No problem with just looking.

Have Whiteflash make inquiries into it and if the get a thumbs up from their end, have it brought into the office.

looks like egl-Israel.
The cert isn''t worth the ink it took to print it.
