Is this a good deal for lightly used Tacori Engagement Ring?

I'm looking at purchasing a ring from Kijiji which is canadian online classified. I've purchased many things on here second hand with no issues. Came across the ring that I was looking for and am not sure if it's a fair price.

It's in CAD. I know that appraisals are usually way more than what the purchase priced would be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
L T

This stone is too deep as it faces up more like a .80-.85 ct stone. You want excellent cut, because even within that range, some stones are much better than others.

$8700+ USD for a used ring with a .90 very good diamond is way too high. You can buy new Tacori rings that have been discontinued for very good prices. I am seeing .90 H SI1 GIA very good diamonds running $3000-3500 USD which would leave at least $5200 for the setting. That is not a good deal at all.

Similar diamond that is too deep:

These are measurements to help you stay in ideal cut territory with a GIA excellent cut stone.

table: 54-58

depth: 60-62.3

crown angle: 34-35.0 (up to 35.5 crown angle can sometimes work with a 40.6 pav angle)

pavilion angle: 40.6-40.9 (sometimes 41.0 if the crown angle is close to 34)
