Not one that I'd be interested in, unless the price was a real bargain. That thing looks pretty darned included, though that's a lousy picture (too many background reflections to really evaluate it).

I'm a little surprised to hear that this is a bad picture. I thought it was pretty good but I'm just a novice and that's why I'm here. A heart felt thanks to everyone! That is a pretty knarly feather under the table but what would be considered a real bargain?

Gemstones are very hard to photograph correctly. In this shot, part of the stone is out of focus, and the lighting is very poor. The environment was not set up right--there are so many reflections of the surrounding area that's hard to know what's what.

As to the value, you'll have to ask the vendors and appraisers.

Billy45-Hey AGain! I notice that from your previous post your interest seems to be in stones of the fancy shaped variety. You know if your interested in a heart shaped diamond with certain characteristics to fit your budget there are many reputable vendors online and you can read about many of their service transactions and testomonials through this site. If you have a limited budget and want a heart shaped diamond why not check out one of the vendors you see being raved about on the forum. If your looking for flea market prices you won't find them because reputable dealers have the credentials to back their stones up and you will be better off paying a reasonable market price for the stone your in the market for rather than one in which might be misrepresented. Maybe I'm wrong all together in what your in search for, but just some advice if your in the market for a heart shaped stone.......or any diamond for that metter....

See Ya-

I wonder if those pics put the stone's best foot forward? It seems to be riddled with easily eye-visible nicks, pocks, and specs (note: not official diamond grading terminology). Buying an I or SI sight unseen would scare me to death unless I had a dependable set of eyes at the other end of the net.

Have fun with it but be careful!
