Confoozed, welcome to the forum


Price sounds reasonable for this diamond. Since you already did your research, you probably don't want to hear lectures about diamond cut

The one thing I would say is that your average diameter, 7.7, is on the small side for a 1.8ct. It will look more like a 1.7ct. Why not buy a 1.7ct and try to do a bit better on cut or buy a bigger spreading 1.8ct?

Dittos to Phoenix Girl. I would look for a lower carat weight, better CUT, with similar diameter. You will get the same visual size look and MUCH better performance. More sparkly!
