Do you have the crown and pavilion angles please? Personally I would pass with fair symmetry and that wide diameter variance....Have you seen the diamond?

HI:

Do you have to have that exact size? I see some really wonderful Infinity stones that are superbly cut, but are a bit smaller and are lower in color/clarity. The latter wouldn''t bother me at all, b/c of the superb cut specs.

Wow, that''s pretty large for a single stud!

BTW- GIA does NOT use the word "finish" on their reports...are you sure this is a GIA report?

Fair symmetry implies the diamond is not well cut, personally I would not want such a diamond - I would insist on at least good symmetry or above. Symmetry is less critical to beauty and performance than the crown and pavilion angles ( which we don't have). What you could do is order an ASET or Idealscope to check this diamond out yourself if you don't want to look for a better one.

does gia give the pavillion angle info?
If it is a recent GIA report, yes.
