That stone has been kicking around inside diamond dealers safes for nearly 2 years.
I wonder why?
You can do a whole lot better listening to these folk.
The price was attractive for a reason.
Martin is good, but the stones he offers are not in Canada. is good, is good.
But you are trying to get a near carat without the +0.999 premium.
this is just above my budget but its a D but has strong blue fluorescence.. https://www.bluenile.com/ca/diamond-details/LD16487229
How detrimental is Strong blue fluorosence?
Im trying to get the best color ideal cut diamond i can get, am i approaching this incorrectly?
I dont think it's quite accurate that folks should avoid fluor. But being cautious (or avoiding) v strong fluor in D-F is something I think is valid. The chance of med fluor being an issue appears quite low.
Thanks very much. Certificate says clouds are not shown, is it a risk of hazyness?
Thanks again @DejaWiz for your time, feedback n education..
i think i gave up on now, also has two prong 18k yellow gold pendants and looks like they have some descent collections for my budget
i have narrowed to these now, all are excellent cuts r above
1) Perfect measurements? 1 VS2
2) Strong Blue fluorosence but Affinity cut?, I , vs1
3) I, VS1 pavilion is off by .4°
4) F but SI1 n looks like clean like the one from Blueline above u suggested but cheaper by $700CAD
apologies for so many links and thanks again the help. I just want to get over it this weekend, loosing sleep over finding the right one
Wish i could write these off as business exp, then defn could have afforded more, may be double haha
I agree, and GIA conducted a study and published results a while back highlighting that it isn't much of an issue for most people.
Impossible to tell how it will affect anyone, so I usually err on the side of caution when making recommendations.
There's no denying the cost saving of a medium to very strong flourescence diamond, though!
Damn, it looks like #1 was grabbed by someone else before i could pay, i wanted to pull the plug but u snooze u loose i guess, esp once i post the link on a site..its get much more attention...lesson learnt
