    Hi,

    As a first timer, I have limited knowledge about diamonds. Looking for a good stone for an engagement ring.
    Any comments are very welcome. Thanks a lot.

    Here's the specs. I was given:

    AGS Ideal 0
    1.285 SI-1 F
    Fluor N
    Polish ID
    Symmetry ID
    Polish ID

    Depth 61.2%
    Table 57%
    Crown angle 35.0
    Pavilion angle 40.8
    Girdle N-SK-F faceted 1.2% - 2.6%
    Culet VS
    Dimension 6.98 - 7.05 x 4.29

    Some additional information:
    (Depth from Table to Girdle 15%)
    (Depth from Girdle to Culet 42.7%)

    One thing I don't quite understand is that 15%+42.7%+(1.2-2.6)% doesn't quite add up to 61.2%

    I forgot to add this image at 10x. I understand that it is a SI-1 diamond, some say it is a good compromise. Question of the Pros, will this inclusion be obvious for the naked eyes? Thx again.

    i would buy it.
    Scores around 1.2 on HCA :)
    the %'s are fine when you add in a girdle.

    Thanks for the lightning quick advice and checking HCA score is a good idea.
    There is a comparable one I just found after posting the previous msg.

    1.282 F SI1 AGS0 (H&A)
    61.2 54 34.8° 42.9%
    0.7-1.2pt
    Polish id Symetry id Flour no

    With HCA, it scored 0.8-EX

    $8520

    This one looks a tad better on paber but no picture on the inclusions. Any second opinion will be very helpful. Thx in advance.

    Hi JSummers,

    I reckon the last stone is ACA from Whiteflash? They cut very nice diamonds with reasonable prices for this sort of branded goods; plus everything included (free shipping, diamond toolkit and no credit card surcharge). But choice is yours - shop around and decide for yourself.
