That is an awesome price, too.

I just spent ~12,900 on a 1.41 carat G VS1 (incredibly clean VS1) H&A -- so for only a few bucks more you''re getting a fair amount more size, plus the specs on that stone are wonderful!!

Definitely go for it, its a great size too -- especially for a solitaire setting!

I haven''t checked the HCA score, but I like how the combination of the slightly longer lower girdle percentage and slightly smaller table percentage look together. It is a really nice contrast balance, and I like the length of the arrows tips to the shafts. The circle in the middle isn''t too big and the arrow shafts are not too fat or too skinny. I don''t see how you could go wrong.

Are you going to get it?

You know, I''ll second that, Lumpkin. I''ve got a 1.41 that has nearly the identical % table (and other proportions) and the fire that the diamond produces is really excellent and definitely my favorite aspect of a diamond over another type of gemstone.
