No.
EGL grading is not as consistent and respected as that of GIA and AGS.
EGL may grade color and clarity 2 or more grades too generously compared to AGS and GIA.
That makes EGL diamonds look like a great deal till you learn that their reports are lies.

I'd look for a princess with a cut grade of 0 from AGS.

EGL is known to be inconsistent in grading and does not grade the same as GIA or AGS.

also I am curious about the proportions of that diamond...the table is 74 and the depth is 62??

if you are open to shopping online, post your budget/preferred specs and we can help you find some candidates. if not I would look for AGS0 princess cuts or go with a vendor who provides ASET images.
