Did it end up being too warm? While old cuts look much whiter face-up I'm not sure if the same applies when graded from the side or face down like GIA. I took my M OEC took a jewelry store to look at some bands and they said it looks like an I color face-up, but I can see tint if I'm looking from the side.
Have you reached out to Ari from Single Stone to see what he has for loose stones? They work with M. Flynn in the South End and I believe they could ship some out for you to see in person. I didn't take them up on this offer since I already found my stone but always remembered this as an option.
It faces up whiter for sure.
This is one of the oldest jewelry stores in Boston. They graded it themselves and are selling it as an M VS2. When we looked at the stone next to a GIA graded J and N, it was clearly not an M. It was darker than the N!
And even with the proof in front of their eyes, they said they would charge the same price for it even though it was not an M. I felt deceived and disappointed.
It's listed! I can't get the link to copy for some reason, but it is priced at $73,132
