Hi again Mike.

Sorry we still need more info please. Can you find out and post the info requested below please?

Type of lab grading report such as GIA, AGS, EGL etc. This has a big influence on price.

On the report you should be able to find the following info which would also be very helpful-


crown and pavilion angles or percents ( these are crucial to judge the cut of the diamond)
girdle thickness
fluorescence if applicable.

If you could get the above info then we can go from there. Also is the diamond for sale online or with a store jeweller? Typically diamonds sold online can be less expensive than brick and mortar stores.

The price looks reasonable compared to other diamonds of similar size and specs doing a search above. Without the angles we won''t be able to tell how well the diamond is cut, it probably isn''t cut to the very strict standards we see with some diamonds here going by the table size and polish and symmetry grades, but without the angles it is hard to tell much more. Can you request the crown and pavilion angles from the seller, or an Idealscope or ASET image if the diamond is being sold online?

i called the jeweler he said gia doesn''t put crown angles on their certificate
Most do include this information, especially for larger stones. At first glace the table is a bit large for my taste, but without the crown/pavillion angles it''s hard to stay whether it would be a performance issue or not.

Yes they do, with the reports from the past few years!
