    Looking at buying a diamond online and I don’t really know if what I am looking at is good or not. I am happy with the specs and it’s given me a HCA score of 0.8.
    Can you help? Do these images look good or not?

    Thank you!!

    This looks very strange to me, and not ideal at all. I can't tell what's going on exactly, but it looks odd. what are the specs? Do you have real-world photos?

    Oh shame. Thank you for having a look. This is a lab diamond so certified by IGI so I guess the specs are give and take maybe?

    What are the crown/Pavillion angles? Something about it just looks odd. And it also looks kind of hazy in that picture. We can't really discuss lab stones here, if you post on the MMD sub forum people will be happy to help!

    basically use the "report concern" button at the bottom of your original post, and then there will be a button to say why you are reporting it. Then you can ask the mods to move it to the man made diamonds sub forum. I'll also report it now for you.

    Hi Eellee :)

    I'm not sure if you've posted since this thread, but may I ask if there's any update? :)

    Look at the center - it's cut crooked.

    Hello! Yes, sorry I started a new thread for a new pick! I purchased this one. They couldn’t get me any ideal scope or Aset images but I decided to take the plunge. Hopefully it’s beautiful when it gets here!

    I see this is from brilliant earth. Can I just suggest you check out this thread....
    https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/tell-me-how-much-i-overspent.251184/

    It’s a long read but worth it and some of it can just be glossed over. Long story short...their customer service is terrible. This thread is about somebody else’s experience and they are still working through it.

    They have personally over charged me 3 times and then sent me earrings with big defects in the setting. Tread cautiously if you choose to work with them - get everything in writing and ask all the questions. Keep all communications and pay via credit card so you can dispute the charges via your cc company if needed.

    I saw that thread after making the purchase.
    We have only purchased the diamond and paid in full so if the diamond arrives and I do not like it, it should be very easy to return it as that particular policy is very clear on their site. I probably wouldn’t deal with them again given the bad stories but with the bad stories there are also a lot of non problematic stories where everything went perfectly fine so ‍♀️ for now I can only hope it’s smooth sailing.
