That is a LOT of money to spend on a diamond whose cut is not the best. Where are you buying this diamond?
I think you could do a lot better. Have you considered buying online?

Numbers are not great, special brillianteering may help.

An ideal cut diamond will look bigger and sparkle more than a bigger more poorly cut diamond. Also a well cut diamond will appear whiter allowing you to go down in color 1 grade and still get a great diamond. Also, if you drop a clarity grade and get an eye-clean SI1, you can get a larger diamond still. I would readily drop in color and clarity to get an ideally cut diamond.

Really...I thought these were good numbers..its an ideal cut
"Ideal" is a word thrown around a lot . . . this isn''t ideally cut, it doesn''t even get the top cut grade for a GIA diamond. I don''t know enough about brillianteering to know how much it will help so I won''t comment on that but at $16,000 . . . I think you should consider getting a better cut diamond, IMHO

It's not a GIA excellent, it wouldn't get AGS Ideal, and it's not ideal under HCA. If you see it and like it though, that's fine.

In the end it only matters if you think it is beautiful BUT for myself I found that most of the diamonds I saw at the jewelers looked good and having a tight numbers of a true ideal diamond gave me the peace of mind that the diamond would be gorgeous in any lighting not just at the jewelry store. I also almost bought a diamond locally and though it was a beautiful diamond, I changed my mind at the last minute and bought a diamond with better numbers online and am SO happy that I did because it was more beautiful and I felt security in the numbers.
