My only reservation is regarding the inclusions on the table. But, I still can''t see them through 40x magnification. Jamie at WF said that it''s eye-clean and you would have to look through a loupe to see it. I really like what I see from the ASET report.

I think it''s a mite small for a 1.15

This one is at Wink''s:
PR 1.06 G VS2 $6,758 AGS 75.4 61.8 Pointed Excellent Excellent Negligible 5.62-5.59x4.22
Virtually same size, a couple hundred less. Linky here: http://www.visagem.be/External.php?SIT=1&REM=20f3967eb5ede6c7adaa93f8fe5ee79b

And another Infinity:
5.75 mm http://www.infinitydiamonds.be/diamond.php?ID=95 for 300 more than the ACA at Dutton''s Diamonds.

And then if you don''t care whether it''s ACA or Infinity, and just regular AGS 0 will do:
5.75 mm http://www.exceldiamonds.com/diamond/51599.html for 6K!

Shoot, I thought I found one. I forgot to check whether the length and width were reasonable.

It's reasonable. 5.65-->5.75 is small difference. But you wanted something bigger, so I started looking.

Most of the ones I found weren't AGS0, and didn't have quite the same qualities as the one I initially posted. Would I be better off getting something that's on the smaller side of that range, if it's going to have a better cut? How noticeable would it be?

The one from Excel looks nice, but is having a thicker girdle a bad thing?

Slight size difference doesn''t really matter. I think it comes down to taste. But you haven''t seen any of these stones yet, though all AGS 0, and I''m not sure what your taste is, and you don''t know what your girlfriend''s taste is, so it''s moot?

Don''t worry about the girdle on the last one. On rounds, GIA measures at thin points, AGS measure at min and max. Princess has straight girdle, but the big number would seem big if you''re measuring like GIA on a round.
